Write DVD using Roxio

I have a 700XL running XP Home. I made an image of my C Drive using Drive
Image. I split it into smaller files of 4.589 GBs so that it would fit onto
DVDs.

When I tried to use Roxio I got a message that "The current file system
can't write files larger than 4 GB. A UDF file system (without bridge) that
supports 4GB files will be used to record the disc"

I did Drive Image again specifying 3.7 GB files, but I'm curious as to what
the UDF File System is. Would I have had a problem reading the DVD back?

Anyone know?

Thanks, Allen

You wouldn't by chance have FAT32 as your filesystem on the hard drive,
would you?

No - It's NTFS.

Do you also have the latest service patches for Roxio installed? If not,
try after installing those.

UDF file system is a system that allows you to write an delete (if a
DVD-RW or DVD+RW) individual files from the DVD. It's what allows the
the DVD to emulate a Hard Drive.

In my experience UDF is unreliable and causes compatibility problems
if you upgrade your O/S at a later date. In a case like this where
you are backing up the entire drive I would use ISO-9660 / Joliet type
files system. The drawback it's that you have to assemble the
contents of the DVD first in say Nero, and then burn to DVD all in one
hit. And on rewritable media you can delete the entire contents but
you can't delete single files. The plus is that it's far more stable
and compatible and reliable than UFS is.

Thanks for the info. I ran Drive Image again, had it create smaller files,
and used Roxio to burn the CDs.
