Hello,

I have some .ISO files that I would like to burn. They are about 7.5GB files. For the life of me, I can't get it to burn. I am using DVD+R 8.5GB discs and I have a 8X DVD+/-RW DRIVE.

I have tried using Nero express, ImgBurn and MagicISO to try and burn the file.

HELP PLEASE!!!

Thanks

Yes, I do get errors.

Nero says - 'your compilation cannot be written on this kind of disc Please insert a disc of the correct type or modify the setting of your compliation to make it compatible witht he current disc.'

I tried the above and it wont let me check DVD+R

ImgBurn sasy - I/O error'

I'm not too sure but I think you can only burn .ISO's to CD's.

You can burn ISO's to DVD but are you trying to to burn to double layer media? Is your burner double layer capable? Nero and Imgburn (it uses the Nero engine) should handle it. If your are using single layer media you can't burn files that large as the media is only good up to 4.7 GIG. Remember also that .iso files are images and have to be burned as such no matter the program you use for the task.

Thanks silverbeard

Yes, The DVD is DVD+R double layer 8.5 GB but I don't think my burner is double layer compatible. Will I still be able to burn the file using the DVD even though i dont have double layer burner?

Should I have to change a setting in Nero?

Thanks

Not likely without the ability to detect the layer break. If these are video images you may be able to transcode to a more compressed format with a program like DVDShrink that will get them to to a size acceptable to single layer media.
