Dvd Burn Says It Needs 2 Dvds

Question

Hi

I have burned many DVDs with my Toast TI 7.1.3 and suddenly it is not working correctly.

 

I am trying to burn 4.41GB to a Std single sided DVD-R.

 

I prepared several folders holding data that totals 4.5GB or less in each so I could just copy the individual folders into Toast and burn a DVD backup.

 

The first folder burned fine and now I get a message that says "4.41 GB spans approximately 2 DVDs". I can't get any of the 4GB folders to burn onto just 1 DVD.

 

Please advise. Thanks

The actual size of a single-layer DVD is 4.39 GB. Marketers use different math to claim 4.7 GB.

Thanks, I reduced my folder sizes to under 4.39 and it wrote them to 1 disc.
