Question

Hello,

 

i have the EMC8, and i am trying to write in a dvd+R 4,7 gb. But the only space that it gives me is about 4,38 gb. Is this ok? Or i have problem with my computer? I tried another file types , such as udf or iso, but i couldn't get any better.

Can anyone help me?

 

dvd specs: lg gsa-6120b with firmware a115, the latest.

and i tried with tdk dvd+r 4,7 gb and with philips dvd+r 4,7gb

 

if anyone want to explain me the file types of burning and the bridges, or please send me an url.

That is correct, just like your 1.5mb floppy will only hold 1.44mb. The difference is between marketing math and computer math.

 

The file systems of Joliet and ISO9660 were designed around the time of Win3x/Win9x and have many restrictions.

 

UDF is more versatile as long as you don't use any Bridge and you will probably have to turn off validate.
