    DVD UDF format

    Using Nero inCD on XP-sp2, I find that when a DVD+RW is formatted to UDF, Windows Explorer reports a "size" of 535MB and File System INCDFS. If this size is true, it's clearly not a great option. Is there anything else I can use, to realize the actual capacity of a DVD?

    It sounds like Windows is reporting the DVD media as a CD instead. 535MB would be about right for an InCD formatted CD-RW. I'm strongly inclined to distrust the numbers you are seeing. With that in mind...
    <UL><LI>Which version of Nero is this?
    <LI>Have you tried the disc in other computers?
    <LI>Is it consistent - does every DVD do this?
    <LI>Have you tried any other packet writing software like InCD to see what happens?[/list]You might also consider using IsoBuster to look at the disc and see if you can read the true capacity. I could not find a reference that says what level of support InCD has for different media types.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by AlanMiller on 18-Jan-08 20:56. )</P>Thanks Mark. I'm using Nero 6 InCD and IsoBuster agrees with the size reported. It looks like it might be a Nero limitation? I might try Roxio or something supporting Mount Rainier. Other ideas appreciated
