Not enough room on cd-r???
This is really confusing me..
I had an NT Training CD (original) that was starting to get scratched up, so i copied it to a new cd-r. It's been a year or so now, and now this one is starting to get a bit danaged, so i wanted to copy the 650MB (74min) CD-R to a new 700MB (84min) CD-R. I copied all the files from the 650MB CD to my Hard Drive, now when i attempt to write those files to the 700MB CD, it tells me there's not enough space. How is this possible? I'm using Nero Burning Rom 5. I've also tried the DirectCD program that came with my CD-RW drive.
I saw that a long time ago...I think that's why I don't do copies like that anymore...
I believe that it was 'cause the same file on a hard drive takes up more space than on a CD....something to do with the sector size or cluster size, I don't remember. (anybody else remembers??)
Anyway you can't do that....that's not the right way to copy a CD, you should make a copy of the CD, not the files on your hard drive.
Well I tried doing it over my network also.. From one CD-ROM to my CD-RW, and the same thing happened, said it would go over 700MB's
When I get the chance, I'll pull a CD-Rom drive from another system, and stick it in my primary, see if it'll work from one rom to the other from the same comp.
Copy the whole CD as an ISO image onto the HD. Then burn the image to the new CDR.
How do you suggest i do this? I don't usually have a CD that's so big I can't copy it to another CD, so i never have to do that?!?!
It is not a requirement that you have a CD reader to copy CD to CD.
You said you're using Nero, right?
easy.... choose 'CD-Copy' on the "New Compilation" screen, then be sure under the tag 'Copy Options' the source drive is the same recorder (if you had a second CD reader you would put that one there), then on the tag 'Image' make sure it's creating a temporary file on your hard drive (something like "C:\image.nrg")...all set, just hit 'Copy CD'
It's going to read all the 'source' CD and create a temporary file on your hard drive, then it's gonna ask you for a blank CD & start copying the info there....
Thanks Mr. NoOne,
I was able to do as you said, and have it read the source disk, then write to the destination disk, and it all fit.
