I'm sure the size is fine. I just bought some Ritek DVD-R 4x and was able to burn the image successfully. I also noticed that with the Verbatim DVD+R 4x, the silumation option in nero was greyed out but it wasn't when I used the Ritek media. Is it b/c you can't run simulations with DVD+R media? I just updated my Nero to v18.104.22.168
Here is what I got from the log when I used the verbatim media:
Disc Manufacturer ID: MCC, Media Type ID: 002, Product revision number: 0
Disc Application Code: 0, Extended Information Indicators: 1
Is it possible I got a bad batch (it is from a 10 pack j/c I bought from staples)?
