I was burning an image with ImgBurn when i got this error. I was totally bewildered and was wondering what went wrong.
After checking through the ImgBurn log files I found this
“W 15:45:30 User accepted disc space warning and is attempting to overburn!”
I must have clicked ok it by mistake.After failling to write the last few sectors to the Disk (due to lack of space), ImgBurn did offer the option to close the disk, and I think it succeeded in that.
Anyway before writing I used DVDdisaster to write RS02 ECC data to the disk(about 5%) and I believe it is these data that was on the excess blocks that were not written.
I can Read the disc without any problems(I think it takes slightly longer to load than a regular DVD though) And the PI/PE scans are good too. just out of curiosity i tried to recover the disk using DVDisaster .and it worked.I have attached the screens below.
What I want to know is whether this disk will go bad in a few days or weeks , OR am I okay since it is the last few sectors of ecc data that got lost and not the real data .I am not really sure how Dvdisaster works and how it "attaches the extra ecc data to your disk. I want this to last at least 2 years + as I’m leaving for a while and these archives will be left at home.
Can someone please shed some light on this?
