    Don't know, I ran into the same issue with a dvd backup. It spit out 2 DVD+R disks saying they weren't large enough, so I tossed in a DVD-R and it worked fine. Try that.

    use a program like roxio. Sometimes the basic write programs don't read the capacities of this disk correctly. I ran into this a few days ago and roxio classic worked but drag to disc did not.
