I tried to burn a 4GB file onto a normal DVD (iso) and nero would not let me and said you cant burn a file over 2GB onto a dvd (iso). Is this true??? A file size cap for a normal dvd??? Anyway it said to use udf dvd instead which i did and it seemed to burn ok. But now its wont seem to play back when i test out the dvd. It crashes wmp. Anyone know anything about this udf dvd format?
Are you running FAT32 partition?
TigerIt seems that you tried to burn a DVD movie ISO just as a regular file.You need to burn a DVD image, not file, assuming the ISO you talk about is proper DVD movie in this 4GB file.
Yes, it's true - the ISO9660 standard is limited to 2GB per file. Use UDF if you need to burn larger files.
this is what i mean:
As for FAT32 partiton? I dont think so. Im running xp, which is ntfs. But maybe this dvd used fat32?
Im not trying to burn a dvdvideo disk. Just a dvd disk for data backup that is readable by computers.
Anyway are there any imcomplatiable problems with the UDF file system?
Did you read what I just said? Scroll down and choose DVD-ROM (UDF) - much like the message tells you! You shouldn't experience any incompatibilities unless you have very special needs - in which case, split the file in two and use ISO.
Also I think AVi files have problems over 2GB as well, I think it causes problems with media player. There are a few players that can get around it though.
Mastre, Thanks, I saw what you wrote, I was just trying to see if there were known problems with UDF as they seem to not play in wmp when I burn them. Ill think i just have to keep em under 2GB. Thank you all for your help
