K3b reporting wrong ISO size

Hi, using Kubuntu 8.04 (not KDE4 version).

I have imported the Fedora 9 Full DVD iso into k3b. Size of the iso is 3.3Gb. Still k3b reports the size as 1.3GB. Is that something I should worry about or can I burn the DVD without problems anyway?

Actually I just notice now, it probably has something to do with the size-limit of 32 bit signed words, but my question still remains

That's 2Gb missing! Are you sure that your .iso isn't in fact corrupt. I've just imported a dvd iso into k3b, and it reports the correct size 3.4Gb.

First check md5sum
Use a bit torrent client for example to correct that iso
