Question

Hi everybody

 

I have a dell with a ts-h653a dvd burner drive.

 

I have need to burn a gi. file on to disk.

 

Ok so the drive reads that there is a 4.4gb DVD+RW disk in the drive right now but if I try to burn image and get the files on to a disk the box that says please insert a dvd etc etc etc and then doesnt read itand the box comes up again. \i have has the pc prob near 4 years and have never needed the burner before so never tried it and ditto with the disks which are a couple of years old.

 

\i tried update drivers automatically through my pc but it says that it has the latest driver, any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Where did that .gi file come from? How big is the file? What program from EMC 9 are you using to burn the .gi file?

Perhaps it wants to be burned to a CD not a DVD :rolleyes:

Did you try a DL disc? Perhaps that gi file is too large for a single layer disc.

 

Also could the gi file be protected under coppy right provisions.

If that 48,405kb is the file size then it should not be a DL but should fit on a CD.

 

If a .gi is created from another CD, then does it have to be burned to a CD or can it be burned to a DVD?

Intrested to hear the reply to this too, I will try to find out if the material is copyrighted when my gf wakes up thanks for the input so far.

Is the gi file of a video or a data disc?

 

Why don't you put in a CD-RW and see what happens?

I would go back to your post #1 and ask you to translate or explain what you mean and what is the error when you try to burn the gi file to a DVD disc?

 

Can your Dell oem software burn a gi file?

 

If it's a gi file for a CD you need to burn it to a CD.
