#1

Hello guys i did moved files to my dvd but i dont want it so i deleted it and formated it but when i format my dvd is 4.37GB but when format it it says 5.02MB so i dont know what to do please help

I’m not sure I understand the “so I deleted and format” comment - this sounds like a Rewritable DVD, yes? A DVD-“RW”?

Anyway… DVDs might claim to offer 5Gb of storage but they will only take 4.3Gb of data. This is because DVDs are written in many ‘sectors’ and each sector has a Beginning Address and an Ending Address, and these ‘addresses’ consume space on the DVD’s storage, thus leaving 4.3Gb for actual data usage.

i mean i can format the disk but in the format bar it shows me that i can format just 10mb but in the source its 4.37gb


#4

Lets hope this is a DVD-RW. (re-writable disc).

Use Imgburn, which is a free burning program. Open the program and click on any of the options. Then click Tools–>Drive–>Erase disc–>Quick Erase.

Ok, lets get some more information about the disc. Start up ImgBurn again, and click on any of the options…Discovery mode will do, so click on Discovery. On the right side of the main window of ImgBurn, you should see a whole list of information. Please copy and paste it into your next reply.

CMC MAG-M01-00 is a type of dvd recordable disc that is not erasable or capable of being formatted. Generally it is only written to one time. The only exception to that is if you use packet writing software like Nero InCD.

We do not recommend trying to write to these kind of discs using packet writing software. It causes all kinds of problems.

If you want discs that can be erased and re-used, I suggest buying these:
