max filesize only 4.22GB?

Recommended Posts

I tried using beta to burn an image file created with Acronis True Image, which file is 4.3GB in size, onto RiData 8X, 4.7GB DVD-R media. CDBurnerXPPro says the maximum file size it can burn is 4.22GB. Really? Kind of makes it useless for me. Please tell me I'm doing something wrong.

No you're not doing anything wrong. The space on a dvd you can use is less than the rated size because it has to have room for the dvd header (directory info, etc) reserved. It has nothing to do with CDBurnerPro.

Remember that 4.7GB as in media capacity means 4,700,000,000 bytes => actually 4.38GiB

But 4.3GiB is still less than 4.38GiB so it sounds weird.. Maybe I'm wrong, but shouldn't the headers be embedded in the image file?
