    XP Proff SP2

    In a recent question I was assured that 80 minutes is the absolute maximum one can burn to a CD, (hence the reason why, when I previously tried to burn a video of 82 minutes length the burn process was stopped in it's tracks). Does the same principle apply to DVD's because just now I burned a 118 minute video to a DVD [see screen shot] which is just 2 minutes short of the maximum capacity yet there seems to be quite a lot of unused space on the disc. Regards SF.

    Re: DVD Record Time

    What size is the DVD? 4.7GB? 8.5GB?

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> Can you put something more descriptive in your subject lines? - it helps others when searching for answers.

    Re: DVD Record Time

    Size of DVD's in question is 4.7GB. Slightly different slant but still relevant to the screen shot attached & may sound naive but am I right in suspecting that the discs write from the center to the periphery or visa versa? Cheers SF

    CDs and DVDs are written from the centre outwards.
