Angry Problem burning double layer DVD with K3B


Hi everyone

I recently got a Toshiba double layer dvd burner, everytime I try to burn a Double Layer DVD i get this message:

System
-----------------------
K3b Version:0.11.16
KDE Version: 3.2.3
QT Version: 3.3.3

growisofs
-----------------------
/usr/bin/mkisofs: Value too large for defined data type. File /home/me/mythvideo/Movie - Title 1.vob is too large - ignoring
:-( more than 50% of space will be *wasted*!
use single layer media for this recording

growisofs comand:
-----------------------
/usr/bin/growisofs -Z /dev/hdc -use-the-force-luke=notray -use-the-force-luke=tty -use-the-force-luke=dao -dvd-compat -speed=2.4 -overburn -use-the-force-luke=4gms -gui -graft-points -volid K3b data project -volset -appid K3B THE CD KREATOR VERSION 0.11.16 (C) 2003 SEBASTIAN TRUEG AND THE K3B TEAM -publisher -preparer K3b - Version 0.11.16 -sysid LINUX -volset-size 1 -volset-seqno 1 -sort /tmp/kde-geiner-joe/k3bNoVmLb.tmp -rational-rock -hide-list /tmp/kde-geiner-joe/k3bmRsXta.tmp -joliet -hide-joliet-list /tmp/kde-geiner-joe/k3bxCwYHb.tmp -udf -full-iso9660-filenames -iso-level 3 -path-list /tmp/kde-geiner-joe/k3bWRgUub.tmp


Any help highly appreciated

Hello!

I remember seeing something about growisofs and dual layers that growisofs will not burn the first (of possible several) sessions on a dual-layer dvd if the session would fit on a single-layer media. This is because the multi-session is not yet very stable and reliable. At this time I cannot find this info again so I have no references for you. Hopefully someone else will have more detailed info.

When you say multisession are you talking about a re-writable dvd? The reason for my question is because Im trying to burn a recordable only dvd, and the size of the movie is bigger than a single layer dvd.

Thanks for the reply

im just curious, where did you get your dual layer dvd's and ho wmuch were they. they seem too expensive to bother with unless you are using them to back up stuff. burning movies on them seems pointless.

Rewritabel and multisession are not the same thing. With DVD+R it is possible to add more data later (i.e. you don't burn the whole media at once, but in smaller parts).

Here is the text I remember seeing about this issue:
Quote:
And when it comes to DVD+R Double Layer recordings, growisofs applies yet another limitation, purely artificial. Taking into consideration Double Layer media prices growisofs is programmed to refuse to perform unappendable recordings which are less than 1/2 of blank capacity and to advice to use single layer media instead.
This is taken from the grosisofs homepage http://fy.chalmers.se/%7Eappro/linux/DVD+RW/

I bought it in a store called Fry's here in Oregon, I payed $99 for the burner and $20 for 3 Memorex DVDs , those were the cheapest ones in the store, the other were $24, still I think that in the long run those DVDs are cheaper than buying the original movies, even the ones that go for $9.99, if I can burn the movies I will be saving at least $4 per movie, I want to back up some of my movies, they have the tendency of getting scratched, so if you have to go and buy it again, you've lost a lot of money.
