I had a BD job that was like 250 MB less than the maximum 25 GB size.  I tried burning it to BD-RE but ImgBurn asked if I wanted to Overburn it.  It burned to BD-R fine.  So, I'm guessing that a BD-RE's maximum available space is slightly smaller than a BD-R?  What is the maximum size then for a BD-RE?

Assuming the BD-RE is formatted without spare areas (normally these would enable the drive's 'defect management' feature), they should both have 12219392 sectors available for writing to.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

Yeah, my experience has been they're both the same size, and I think they were designed to be that way.  I never formatted with spare areas, so I never noticed a difference between BD-R and BD-RE.
