Default Instant cd/dvd problem - wrong file size

I have VOB Instant CD/DVD and have followed the wizard to burn my ripped files etc to a DVD-RW. I select UDF DVD, no joliet etc like the various howto's say and I drop and drag every folder into place.

So far no problem. When I click on 'Write' a window pops up saying recording track 1 of 1, 1024mb and will take about 15mins.
However the folder quite clearly contains 4 or 5 VOB plus a few other files which in total comes to just over 4gb in size.

It will burn successfully but will not let me browse the dvd when finished.

Has anyone else had this problem and/or perhaps know what I'm doing wrong?

I cant use Nero as it just stops burning/responding half way through. Primo usually fails the test and syas theres buffer underruns even though the writer (Pioneer A04) claims to have protection in that area.

At a bit of a loss. Any help would be most appreciated.

Firmware 1.33. Aspi 4.72. Winxp sp1. Heard rumours 80pin cable can cause problems - any truth to this?

Its odd because I have another ripped/ifo'ed movie and that works ok everytime I try it. Always shows correct filesize. Always burns correctly and plays perfectly on computer and standalone.

But if I then try to do this other movie using exactly the same settings, even though it shows several vob files etc and 4.1gb in total, when it goes to burn it says 1024mb.

Not sure if perhaps the authoring etc has gone awol and Instant cd/dvd is getting confused somehow. Not sure if this is possible.

The only thing I could tell you is that Nero Burning ROM is the best program I have used for burning compiled dvds. The wizard steps you through it all and works like a charm every time for me. I haven't used Instant CD/DVD much as I found it much more confusing than what it was worth.

I tried making an image using ifoedit and then burning that using dvddecryptor. Worked like a charm!

I'll try burning the same image using nero and see if it works. The other difference was that I used a dvd-r instead of the dvd-rw I'd been using. I found a scratch on the dvd-rw - maybe that was interfering with the burning process.

Thanks for info
