Image File Size

Using CloneCD4, when trying to copy SIMS Hot Date game, after reading CD, Clone CD reports File size as 774499kB (CD is a full 640Mb), and so cannot fit this on 700mB CD.

Any clues?

The image file is often much larger than the space it will occupy when burnt to a cdr. Don’t worry, just burn it. It will fit onto an 80 min cdr (it may even fit onto a standard 74 min cdr too).:slight_smile:

A data disc contains 2048 bytes per sector, but a raw image contains 2352 bytes per sector, plus 96 bytes subchannel data, so your image is always 19.5% larger than the “normal” capacity.

Seen this question before. Added it to the CloneCD FAQ.
