i’ve been driving myself nuts with this all day.
i’ve been backing up and burning dvd copies for years now, and never had this issue until having to use some new programs for burning.
all the programs i’ve been trying (imgburn, dvdfab, etc) keep reporting that the size of the files are too large for a dvdr.
the thing is, i’m using dvdshrink to compress the dvds down to the level they need to be for dvdr, and i’ve always done this the same way with no issues on filesize. i’ve used nero and cheetah to burn in the past, but i no longer own nero and cheetah keeps hanging upon 100% burn, with an un-usable disc as a result.
so what’s up with this file size restriction limit on dvdrs in these programs?
i even recompressed one down to 4.19 gigs, which is well below the 4.35 gigs i have regularly burned for years with no problems
for further clarification, in dvdfab i get the write error 105- too large file
and here’s an example of the error in Imgburn
"Size: 4,479,164,416 bytes
ISO9660 Limit: 4.294.967,295 bytes
Reason: file size exceeds the limit imposed by the ISO 9660 file system."
again, i’ve done this for years with other burning programs with no issues at all on the same file sizes… just seems like there’s got to be some way to burn this.
