    Hi guys
    Ive bought an ihas flashed with burnermax, sold under the impression that its fit to burn xgd3s

    When I put an 8.5gb DL disc into the ihas, imgburn recognises that theres 8,547,991,552 bytes free on the disc... which is not enough to meet the 8.7gb required to burn!

    Have I been sold a dud?

    I was of the understanding that DL discs are meant to effectively increase in capacity when inserted into an ihas?

    I have an ATAPI iHas 124

    my mistake. Sorry I got confused with 8,738 in imgburn, thought that meant 8.7GB

    I am curious, Why do I need an ihas burnermax burner if the ISO is smaller than standard DL disc capacity anyway? I have 8.5Gb discs (or so it says on the label). Only thing I can think is that the label means its an 8.5Gb disc when used in a iHAS

    i think it has to do with the formatting of the disc. An 8.5 gig DL only shows 7.96 gig available space for writing. You never get the full amount of space on any type of drive or media due to formatting. The burnermax allows your drive to burn right to to end of the disc.

    Yea, because the companies calculate 1 kilobyte as 1,000 byte, instead of 1,024 byte, which it really is. There are some other tricks they use, and that adds up. It's the same with your harddrive, MP3-player, flash drives and so on.

    thanks for the responses but I think you've misinterpreted my query to be far more technical than it is.
    The reason imgburn couldnt see a 8.7GB disc is because I had not opened the BurnerMax program. Once Burnermax was opened I was able to 'take it to the max' and expand the disc capacity. Imgburn therefore displayed a new 8.7gb capacity :)
