Roxio Will Not Burn 4 Files That Total Up To 4.37Gb On 1 Disc

Hello,

 

A single layer DVD+ is supposed to hold 4482MB of data.

A single layer DVD- is supposed to hold 4488MB of data.

 

I believe that the disc structures such as lead-in and lead-out and Table of Contents have also to be provided for within the available space, but nobody will tell me how to calculate exactly the space these structures take up, so I usually leave at least 20MB of space for them and that seems to see me right.

 

I think the 4480MB of user data you want to write is fractionally too much. I'd drop the file size to 1100MB to be sure, although you might squeeze in 1115MB or even a few bytes more if you have the time to experiment. 20MB is worth about 0.0089 cents on a 20c DVD+ disc. :)

 

Regards,

Brendon

I do know that some of the disc structures change in size as the number of files to be burned increases.

 

If other burning programs will let you burn those same 4 files, then perhaps the Roxio programmers have calculated their space allowances differently.

I can only guess, since nobody has told me. However leaving that extra little headroom works for my burns.

There are 40 programs in the Suite ~ you never mentioned which one you are actually using :o

 

Posting a screen cap (HERE) would be worth its' weight in Gold :lol:

 

I am sure Brendon & I would both love to see your project and get it working for you!

 

I would love to duplicate it, where are you deriving the "4.37 GB" number from???

When your first open Roxio the Home category shows. There is Burn Data Disc option where it says Frequent Tasks. I choose Burn Data Disc.

 

You ask where I am getting 4.37GB from. That is the general size of a single layer DVD as Brendon stated. 4482MB divided by 4 equals 1120 well actually 1120.5. So I figured that 4 files equaling up to 4.37GB(1120MB x 4) would fit on one disc.

 

If you want to duplicate what I have done just take a file or files equaling to 4.37GB and split the file/files into 1120MB chunks. I would use something that is at least 5GB to make sure you get 4 equal files that equal 1120MB. I used 7-Zip. I took a bunch of files I was planing on backing up and added them to a archive. Where 7-Zip says Split to volume,bytes, I hit the down arrow and choose 10M then deleted the 0 in 10 and put in 120. 1120M was in the Split to volume,bytes box. 1120M x 4 equals 4482MB which equals 4.37GB.

No, I know what the OP's doing, I knew immediately where that 4.37GB figure comes from, and I can see what happens.

 

I've provided what I think is the best solution, and I can't see any value wasting time and effort to try and save part of 0.0089 cents.

 

Regards,

Brendon

What about a Dual Layer disc? 8152 MB - 82 MB to be on the safe side like was done with the 4.37 GB disc?

 

 

Your question is incomplete! What are you asking?

 

If it is how much data on a DL Disc?

 

I would stay on the safe side of 8124MB.

 

The difference in between good media and poor media is how well they write above 4GB on a single layer DVD and above 7.5GB on a DL DVD.

I was asking what the safe limit would be on a DL DVD(8152 MB). I was asking if taking off 82 MB from the DL DVD(8152 MB) would be good enough for the safe limit. 82 MB was taken off for the 4.37 GB(4482 MB) single layer DVD.

Safe limit in my opinion is 4464MB for single layer DVD 8124MB for a DL DVD, kapish?
