iso image problems re size?

I have an ISO image which it says is 2.51Gb. I have tried using Roxio Media Creator and Sonic Record Now without success.

The disk is a 4.7Gb blank DVD+R. In Roxio if I go into copy data it says there is 4.7Gb. When I go into Copy, Burn Image is then says 2.2Gb which is obviously not enough space to record the ISO. How can I do this. Why is the size of the DVD+R reduced?

Does anyone have an idea.

Have you by any chance copied the ISO image to the DVD+R?

The image size is 2.5Gb, subtract that from the 4.7Gb DVD+R which leaves 2.2Gb free space.

It is not enough to just copy an ISO image to a DVD, you have to use the appropriate image burning software such as the free software from click here

Roxio and Sonic Record may have the same facilities built in, it will be a matter of choosing the correct burning option.

Thanks Phono worked a treat.
Active ISO was simple and burnt the image without any fuss.
Thought I was doing as the instructions said on the software I mentioned, obviously not. It also ejected the media?
All done now. Many thanks.
