Question using IMG Burn with Fab (Disc space error), Space error

Question using IMG Burn with Fab (Disc space error)

Hi Guys

I have been backing up some of my movies of late, from my HD to Disk; my normal process is to run them through Vobblanker first, then Shrink, before using DVD Fab in conjunction with IMG Burn engine.

Like below

[HD]—[VobBlanker]—[Shrink]—[DVD FAB/IMG Burn]—[Disk]

But I have noticed of late, that I keep getting an annoying message from IMGBurn stating the following

There doesn’t appear to be enough space on the disc to burn this image
Image size: 14,083,728 Sectors (27,507 MB)
Disc size 4,173,824 Sectors (8,152 MB)

Would you like to continue anyway?

[YES] [NO]

Now if I leave the shrink out of the chain, then I get no message from IMG Burn, so logical tells me, that the problem may lie with Shrink.

Has any one ever had this problem before, or know what may be causing it, because I know for a fact, that my image size is smaller than my Dvd capacity. I’m using DL Discs.

Discs/Verbatim

PS

I have tried reinstalling shrink, but to no prevail.

Many thanks

Ice.

Does HD in this case stand for your hard drive? If so, how big is this file on your hard drive? For normal DL DVds I do a full rip (DVD9) with DvdFab (custom set at 8100 MBs) or RipIt4Me & then burn with ImgBurn.

HD = Harddrive

The file size is aprox 4 GB so there should be plenty of space, it seem to only happen when the file is processed though DVD Shrink, if i go straight from VobBlanker to DVD Fab it works fine,but i dont know why.

I have never had Dvd Shrink take a 4GB file & end up with this for output.

IMGBurn warning notice, is stating that as the size, but its not the case.

The actual out put size is 4.29 GB (4,613,910,528 bytes)

Done it Beef barley.

Because I had other VTS folders, on my desktop, from where I was copying my source from, some how IMGBurn decided to calculate all the data, from my other folders on my desktop as well, which is the reason for the high figure.

I never knew it would do that, but just as I thought I checked it to make sure, by deleting my folders 1 by 1, and as soon as I got to a lower enough capacity on my desktop, it let me burn the film.

Oh well live and learn.

Cheers mate.

No worries, glad you got it done. I have been wondering all day about the huge file size. 4.29 Gbs will fit on a single layer disc.
