I'm trying to burn 1.4GB of data into a 4.7GB DVD using Finder in Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. The biggest file is 300MB.

Here are the steps I take:

  • Insert blank disc
  • Open Finder and drag files to disc
  • Go to File -> Burn

However, I get this error message

Disc_name is too large to fit on the disc. Remove some files and try again.

How can this be solved?

It turned out to be a very simple problem in my case. I just have a bad disc. Sorry for wasting the resources here.
