Just downloaded and burned a DVD just 3.9 gig and the program said there was not enought disc space and asked if I wanted to overburn, I pressed yes and it wrote all over again sucessfully, but that should not have happened with 3.9 gig, the disc is good for at least 4.3 gig. The setting was disc to disc.

I just made an image of a DVD movie to harddisk. Then i used a DVD-R disk to burn to.
I did not use max but changed to 4 x speed.
It burned as useal to 100 % and all went all right.
Used cloneCD 5.2.7.1 downloaded from homesite of Slysoft and updated my 5261 version.
No problems at all.
No overburn request or anything else.

This only occurs on the disc to disc function (on the fly) the program does not calibrate the amount of data or free space available to it.

Alan1476,

DVD-R has more capacity than DVD+R. Also, you might find that even changes with certain media thn can push the standards recommendations.

RULE OF THUMB DETERMINING DVD RECORDABLE CAPACITIES:

One Megabyte = 1,048,576

One Gigabyte = 1,073,741,824

DVD+R = 4,700,372,992 = 4482.6250MB = 4.3775GB

DVD-R = 4,707,319,808 = 4489.2500MB = 4.3840GB

That is not the problem, it has been fixed.
