Default Space issues with DVX and Windows

Does anyone else have this issue with DVX (or maybe it's OGG) and WIndows?

I requested a 350 mb file in DVX but when I go into Windows explorer, the file size shows up as 360,567 kb. At first I thought that DVX was encoding incorrectly and missing the mark by a mile!

But then I right-clicked on the file and went to "properties" and the file size shows as 352mb (369,221,632 bytes).

The problem is that when I use Nero to try and burn it, Nero uses the bytes measurement (369,221,632) and there's no way I can put two files on a 700mb disk.

So do I have to just ask for say...a 340 mb file in DVX and just live with it, or is this a known issue with OGM files and Windows that has a workaround?

This seems to be the case with all the OGM files I've created (about 20).

"the file size shows as 352mb (369,221,632 bytes)."

Most CD burners have overburn capability. therefore, you should have no problem burning 704MB to a 700MB/80 minute CD-R.

Set NERO for overburning (File>>Preferences>>Expert) and also put a checkmark next to "Disk-at-once".

Let us know of your success ;>}

No, the problem is that Windows Explorer as well as other programs such as Nero think the file is 360mb (x2 files is 720), that's way more than can fit on a 700mb CD. It's only when I right-click and go to properties that it shows as 352 which wouldn't be a problem.

The problem is twice as bad for a 700mb movie, it comes out as 740mb but reads as 700 when right-clicking.

It must have something to do with the ogm format because when I encode the same show as an avi it comes out right on the money. And I'm having the same issue with every OGM I create (about 20 so far).

"Nero uses the bytes measurement (369,221,632)"

There are 1,024 bytes in a kilobyte and 1,024 kilobytes in a megabyte.

Therefore, 369,221,632 bytes = 352 megabytes

(369,221,632 divided by 1,024 divided by 1,024)


So, once again, I'd suggest that the two files total only 704Mgs - for which, if you follow my previous post, you should be able to overburn on one CD-R...
