Default Weird computer glitch

I was copying one DVD's files to another and it kept reporting that the
origin files exceeded the DVD's capacity by about 2.8G, which was impossible
since they came from a DVD. It wouldn't get off this, so I just rebooted the
machine and the problem resolved. Odd.


Not weird at all. How much RAM does this computer have installed?

It wasn’t the blank DVD that ran out of room it was the buffer space in
your computer. your computer choked on what you tried to feed through it. You
don’t burn directly from one DVD to the other, there is a computer
somewhere in that mix, and that is where you got the needed headspace by
rebooting your machine.

And it reappears. Tried windows and a burn program. 16G of ram, nothing else running really and it reports different extra space requirements each time I try it. Both when trying to do a DVD to DVD copy or a file on computer to DVD copy.
The file pack is about 2.75G and i've copied it to blank DVD's before.

Presumably your computer has two DVD drives; what brand? What "burn
program", which version of Windows, etc.? What did your error logs tell
you? There are too many variables here to get a grip on the problem.
