How much overburning is possible? How does Optiarc achieve 8.7GB?


#1

I was burning a Linux disc image to DVD+R DL.
Only 150MB too less for the end.

Can a DVD+R DL be extended by 150MB?

A few factors to consider :
You need a capable drive which can overburn and robust media that can handle the extra data or you get coasters instead of working discs.
Also the data may not exceed 8.7 GB in size.
But in your case,I 'd prepare a bootable usbstickā€¦ :givewink:

I need true write protection.
But thanks anyways.
