ATA DVD Drive - Disc Indicates full when only using approx. 10 percent od capaci Tags: DVD Drives Storage Last response: December 15, 2011 6:20 PM in Storage Share Lion John December 15, 2011 3:06:09 PM I have had this same problem on all discs I have used. When I get about 10% of the disc used I get an erronous indication the disc is full and I can't write /save to it. Why is this occurring?

If it is then you must change the settings to get the full capacity of the DVD.
