[X] Faulty file count, dodgy error message

Recommended Posts

Guest Gyro

After burning a multisession data DVD under Windows 2000 Professional, I usually get this message:

"The data has been written correctly to the disc, but the number of files does not match the expected file count. Most likely, the file system structure has not been written correctly and some files will no appear on the disc."

On the last occasion that I burned a disc and received this error message, CDBurnerXP listed the "expected file count" as 981, the "actual file count" as "716", whereas when I counted the files on the DVD with JDiskReport it reported 886 files.

Moreover, I've never noticed that any files were actually missing.

So how do I go about this? What causes this strange and irritating error message?

Thanks! :wink2:

It may be that as the time of checking the files, the disc content is not up-to-date yet. It's just an additional safety net because of an issue with the validation, eventually this can be replaced by something more reliable though.

Thanks, Flo.

This error message is very irritating, and occurs always on the same computer, never under other W2k installations. Why?? :cry:

Actually the program's file counts seem to be faulty. Like I said, CDBurnerXP reports "716 but should be 981" whereas there are actually 886 files on that disc.

I guess I'll have to move to another burning program on that computer.

Does it also show the incorrect file count in the data compilation window before burning? Since you are burning a multi session disc, is the "716" the number of files before you added further files maybe?
