What is the maximum number of files that I can burn into a DVD+R disc ? DVD+RW ?
( I posted a copy of this in the newbie forum and got no reply since yesterday.)
I have 48,332 files (mostly icons fiels, in jpg and gif format and some txt files), in 444 folders, 3.91GB in size. I tried to save/burn them into a single DVD+r and DVD+RW and failed.
I was using Nero 126.96.36.199, HP Pavilion 5300 laptop with a Sony DVD+RW DW-P50A dvd burner. I have tried on 2 DVD+R and the Nero said “burned Failed”. I then burned the same 48,332 files into a DVD+RW, and Nero said I have burned successfully.
Then I tried to read those files using the same Sony DVD drive on my HP, I could only read some of the files(i would said 60% of 48,332files) on both the DVD+R(Nero said Failed) and DVD+RW(Nero said Successful)discs. I could see all 444 folders/directories and all 48,332 file-names on the DVD+R and DVD+RW discs.
Most of the files are 35k to 100k in size. Does the number of files can be burned into a DVD+R limits by the number of sectors in a DVD+R (32,768sectors)? Same thing for the DVD+RW ?
( See Why DVD+R(W) is superior to DVD-R(W), dated June 2003, by Michael Spath , one of the advantages of DVD+ is “the OPC test area of DVD+ is 32768 sectors in total, compared to 7088 sectors for DVD-.” )
