Unable To Burn

Question

I have made an amazing Christmas DVD using Suite 10 myDVD- it previews perfectly but when I hit the burn button in MyDvD, I get an error message that says "the estimated size of the iso image or file set exceeds the available hard-disk space..." and won't let me burn. Two questions...what is an iso image and how large can it be? I'm saving it to an external drive that is 350gb. The total length of my dvd running time is less than 1 hour and is roughly 4500 mb. Any help would be appreciated.

A .iso image file is similar to an archive (but not compressed). It is, as it says, an 'image' of a disc and the suize cannot exceed the 'target' which will be that of a dual layer DVD (about 8 GB)

 

However, if your destination disk is formatted to FAT32, there is an upper limit to that (4 GB) which is lower than the size of the image file for even a single layer DVD (4.3 GB).

 

Check that the destination disk is formatted to NTFS

 

btw - I do know I spelt disc/disk in two different ways - the convention is that optical media is disC and magnetic is disK

Thanks but I think that I do not know how to check the format of my destination disk (external drive). And if it is FAT32, can I switch it NTFS? Your help is appreciated.
