An ISO file often called an ISO image, is a term commonly associated with CD and DVD burning. It is a complete copy of a CD or DVD, which means that if you burn an ISO file to a blank disc, you'll get the same files, folders, and properties as the original disc. If you can open an ISO file, you'll see Video_TS folder and Audio_TS folder, same as what's on a DVD disc. You can create ISO images yourself or download them from the Internet.

• NTSC is the color encoding system used by DVD players and until recently by broadcast television in North America, Japan, and most of South America.

• PAL is the color encoding system used by DVD players and broadcast television in Europe, most of Asia and Oceania, most of Africa, and parts of South America.

The main difference between DVD-5 and DVD-9 is the capacity.

• DVD-9 has more space than DVD-5's. DVD ± R DL discs are called DVD9. The DVD9 discs are usually referred to single-side dual-layer discs. DVD9 store accurately 8,540,000,000 bytes and that is 7.95 GB on a computer. A DVD9 disc can store a 240-min DVD movie.

• The single-sided double-layer DVD discs can store data up to 8.5GB. Those single-sided single-layer DVD discs can save data up to 4.7GB. They are called DVD5. DVD5 can store accurately 4,700,000,000 bytes and that is 4.37 GB on the computer where 1 Kbyte is 1024 bytes. A DVD5 disc can generally store a 120-min DVD movie.

Technical Problem

You can restart the program and try again. If that doesn't help, please install the program and then update the driver. Here is how to update the driver step by step:

• If you get a DVD driver built into the computer, you can use the CD attached to the computer to reinstall and update the DVD driver.

• If you get an external DVD driver, you can also find out the manufacturer of the DVD driver, and download the latest version of the DVD driver from the web of the manufacturer.

Please ensure that you’ve inserted a blank, clean, undamaged and writable DVD disc before burning DVD. If the program persists to prompt you to insert a disc but you’ve already inserted one, try another disc or a disc of another brand. Or you can take out the inserted disc first, then close the program and insert the DVD disc back into your computer. After that, restart the program to try again.

During the DVD burning process, this program needs some free space on your hard drive to save the temporary contents before they are burned into DVD/BD. Once the burning is finished, all the temporary contents will be deleted automatically by this program.

It happens probably because the current directory which you want to use as temp directory does not have enough free space to afford temp contents of burning. So you should select a drive which at least has enough free space for burning temp. Just open "Preference" and then select another directory for Temporary Files there.
