ISO9660 Size Limit Error


Recommended Posts

Please bear with me as I'm a total novice at this. I downloaded an MP4 video I would like to burn to a DVD. I picked up some Verbatim DVD+R DL discs with 8.5GB capacity and attempted to follow the guide here for burning to a DL disc. I ran into the ISO9660 file system size error. I checked out the FAQ and did a forum search to try and figure out options but did not seem to find a simple (to me) answer that dealt with a single, large video file. Below is my log:

Is there a way in the options to allow me to still use ImgBurn to get the file on the DVD in a way that can be played on my Blu-ray player? Big thanks in advance and I apologize if a solution to this was posted somewhere else and I just missed it.

Switching to UDF seemed to do the trick. It never asked me to configure the layer break position though the burn seemed to complete successfully and the disc worked in my player :headphonedance: .


Now please look away while I attempt to tuck back in my ignorance before too many others see it.
