I've been using a Lite-On external DVD writer for about a year now and only today noticed I may have been making a BIG mistake when burning to DVD (and CD).
I use 4.7GB discs and usually fill them to around 4.3GB before finalising. Today I finalised a disc with 4.1GB on it and the finalisation box indicated for the first time ever that it was 100% finalised.
On all previous discs the finalisation box either just flashed up and was gone, or indicated a percentage less than 100%.
I've been assuming all this time that the finalisation was still being completed to 100%, but I'm not so sure now.
So, is there a safe MAXIMUM that can be burnt to a 4.7GB disc and still have sufficient space for 100% finalisation?
Thanks folks (and please feel free to
