Recommended Posts

Have ver 6.2.0.111, 512 MB Ram, 2,8 GH Processor.

 

I can quick erease a dvd-rw, BUT I cannot full erease it. The DVCD drive and software will allow me to write 4.3+ Gb od data,, and I can quick erease that.

appreciate any help anyone can provide

It happens but no one has ever posted a problem from using Quick Erase media…

 

Also keep in mind that RW media is life limited. It will fail and you will lose everything on the disc. Great media to play with but far tooo unreliable to be trusted for any archive or backup.

You can only get 4.3 GB data on a 4.7 GB DVD.

 

When DVD manufacturer's measure a kilobyte, they use 1,000 = 1 k.

 

However, when computers measure kilobytes, 1,024 = 1 k.

 

So when you take 4.7 GB and measure it in computer terms, you have to divide by 1,024 (several times) instead of 1,000 to figure out what will fit on a 4.7 GB DVD.

 

It's around 4.3 GB. You have the same effect when you buy a hard drive. A 250 GB hard drive will not hold 250 GB of data.
