PA 2009 & DVD burning



  • Hi,
    I have a question on DVD burning with PA2009:

    One of my folders that holds around 7GB files (within its subfolders). I wanted to burn this folder on a DVD (single layered). I was surprised to see that after entering the folder to burn, I got no warning except for the red bar. So I thought PA2009 was going to span files over 2 DVD, but it crashed (froze) at the end of DVD 1, and after a reboot, I saw that the 1rst DVD was supposed to hold all the files (the “FAT” equivalent was listing all of them).

    I have not tried backup yet, just the regular burning feature.

    Is this normal ?

    yes, PA does not span discs automatically right now and it is not that simple to implement in the future either.



  • Thanks for the confirmation. Still, it would be nice to have a stronger warning before burning is started.

    we will add it to the list for the future versions… we do allow for overburning if possible, which is why it proceeds.

    OK. To be honest, I said PA froze at the end of DVD1, but this might also be due to a glitch I sometimes get while burning DVD. If this also happens on your side, you might want to add a way to exit more gracefully.

    Thanks !
