[QUOTE=beef barley;2272512]How big is this ISO file & how was it created?[/QUOTE]
If I understand the error message correctly, the first disc ISO is 7094.53 Mb and the capacity of the Memorex DVD+R DL is 579.49 Mb.
I have read the Wikipedia articles on Mb (megabytes) and MB (mebibytes) and, as best I could grasp them the ISO measure (per the error message) indicates media capacity in Gb (gigabytes) or GB (gibabytes) which – as best I am able to grasp at present, is billions of bytes…
Even a single Gb is far in excess of 7094.53 Mb.
I’m new at this, but my math tells me 7094.53 million bytes would be the same as 7.09453 Gb.
Let me ask specifically: Is that right? Or is that wrong.
My next question pertains to encryption.
First of all, I have no desire to pirate anything. I only want backup copies in case the originals get damaged. The discs I am trying to back up are not movies, but are copyrighted, and I respect that.
There is no indication, so far as I have the knowledge to discern, of any encryption.
I don’t know whether it is better to burn a backup as a video disc or as a data disc. However, the only error message I have received is one saying the media I am trying to burn does not have the capacity to hold the contents of the first disc ISO.
I acknowledge and accept the superiority of Verbatim brand, and am ready to order.
If I obtain DVD+R media blanks as follows: Verbatim DVD+R 8.5 GB 2/4X, will that give me the media capacity indicated to be needed by the error message the ExpressBurn video software indicates.
Again, my math may be naive, but it seems to me that for an 8.5 GB capacity media disc a mere 7.09453 would be well within its capacity.
A math result is not better, of course, than the applicability of the perameters plugged into it. So… in my naivete, have I missed some critical element of the problem?
AFTER I have a media disc of sufficient capacity, I can cross whatever other bridge might be encountered, such as the possibility for a different burner or a different software program.
I noticed that the Buslink USB burner I have is NOT ON THE LIST of
hardware listed in format for submitting a question. Until now I have used it only for burning thousands of photographs from digital cameras. And the results have been superb. Odd, then, it seems to me, that it would not be found among the burners listed in this forum.
