Error message when you try to burn a dual-layer Blu-ray disc on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008: “The disc does not have enough free space for all of the files you selected”

Consider the following scenario:

  • On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you try to burn some content to a recordable Blu-ray disc.
  • The Blu-ray disc is an empty dual-layer Blu-ray disc that has approximately 50 gigabytes (GB) of free space.
  • The content that you try to burn exceeds half of the free space on the disc. For example, you try to burn 27GBs of content to the Blu-ray disc.

In this scenario, the operation fails and you receive the following error message:

There was a problem burning this disc
The disc does not have enough free space for all of the files you selected.

This problem can occur with any DVD or CD burning applications that use Image Mastering File System Imaging API v2 (IMAPI2FS). However, the actual symptoms may differ.
