With all the new updates and the desire to auto install programs too my ISO has gotten to big for a CDRW now. I have tried to burn it to a DVD+RW but nero express keeps spitting out the cd and telling me to insert a CDR or a CDRW. Why???? I have made shure I chose the bruner in DVD mode but still no go. What could I be doing wrong?

From personal experience, Nero won't allow you to burn an image to DVD unless it really does exceed the size of a CD. I haven't ever bothered to try to find a workaround and I don't use Express.

One workaround I can think of...try to put some "filler" files on the disk to boost the size of your ISO well over the CD limit.

This is the same issue I am having. The size of my ISO is 903,639,040 bytes so that should be well above the size of any CD. However, Nero Burnign ROM tells me that I have the wrong type of disk in the drive when I put a blank CD in.

Could be that you have forgotten to select DVD as the media type in the new compilation dialog - There is a drop down at the top left of the dialog above the compilation type list - from here you must explicitly select DVD before you can burn a DVD (This is for nero - not express)

AFAICT you need to tell XPCreate to make a DVD image (CDTYPE=DVD) I believe a an ISO CD is different and these things really are images.

"CDTYPE=DVD" ... What was I thinking ... Should have been something like MEDIA=DVD ...

That switch only tells XPCREATE which burning software to use: either CDBURN, or DVDBURN, both courtesy of Microsoft. There is, however, NO DIFFERENCE in the way the ISO is created. I do believe the key for NERO is selecting DVD from the list as mentioned above.

I suppose I will consider adding a MAKEISO, MAKECD and MAKEDVD script to allow these tasks to be performed individually.

This is the Configuration settings for my DVD-R disc i burned. If you are trying to burn a DVD+R/RW you need to edit it to write it for it. NERO automaticly sets the burn for DVD media if you have the ISO written for it. To enable Plus R media edit the line with the arrows pointing at it.
