Do you mean over burn instead of over write?  I don't know what the cut option would be.

 

You could have a DVD-9 that is basically absolutely full and won't fit on a DVD+R DL.

 

If it's a DVD Video disc, you could try using DVDShrink to compress it down a little bit so the image will fit on a DVD+R DL.

Is it a DVD Video disc or is it something else? The only things I ever really saw that were oversized were xbox360 images.

A DVD-9 is a double layer DVD disc.  For recordable discs, it's usually a DVD+R DL, but there are also DVD-R DL, but I don't think they may make those anymore.  What you posted from that log of information is you're using a DVD+R DL.

 

As LUK said, you actually tried burning this image and it said it wouldn't fit?  If it did say that, then, there's nothing you can do with that image as far as burning it.  It's not a type that you can compress.  A car navigation disc most likely doesn't have a VIDEO_TS component you can shrink.  It's most likely a data disc, and not a DVD Video.

 

If it's an ISO image, double click on it like you would any file in File Explorer to navigate its contents.  If there's a VIDEO_TS folder there, you might be able to get around the size issue, but compressing that might cause the disc to not work.  But, if there's no VIDEO_TS folder, which I doubt there is, there's no need going any further.

So, you have a copy someone made from an original and that's what you're trying to duplicate?  With that copy you have inserted in a DVD drive, open ImgBurn and choose Create an image file.  There's a pane of information about the disc on the right hand side of the top ImgBurn window.  Is that the information you copied and pasted before in your previous reply?  If it's not,  copy and paste that info from the right pane into a post here.

 

I would think if worse comes to worst and ImgBurn cannot copy the disc, you can try something else.  In Build mode, drag and drop all the contents from the source disc into a new Build job and create a new ISO that way, bypassing the copy operation.  Try burning that ISO and see if that works. 

 

If that doesn't work, then ImgBurn may not be able to natively handle that disc.  You could try using Windows itself to burn the ISO to a disc or some other burner application and see if you get any better results.  Alcohol has a free version that might be able to image that disc and burn the copy.  Haven't used that in some years, though, but I do know there are certain Playstation 1 discs Imgburn cannot image with the combination of some hardware and Alcohol worked.
