Format A Dvd To 8 Gb

Dual-layered DVDs can hold up to 8 gigabytes of digital files.

A standard DVD can hold just less than 5 gigabytes of data. However, if your PC or Mac computer has a dual-layered disk burner, you can use blank DVDs with storage capacities of up to 8 gigabytes. These dual-layered DVDs can have data written onto both sides of the disk. Before you begin transferring files and media to an 8-gigabyte DVD, you will need to format it with your PC or Mac computer.


PC Instructions

1. Insert the blank DVD into the disk drive of your computer.

2. Click the "Burn files to disc" option from the list of actions that appears.

3. Enter a name for the blank DVD.

4. Select the "Mastered" formatting option. This will ensure that your formatted DVD will work with older devices.

5. Click "Next" to format the DVD.

Mac Instructions

6. Insert the blank DVD into the disk drive of your computer.

7. Launch the Disk Utility program, which can be found in the "Utilities" folder on the "Applications" section of your Mac hard drive.

8. Highlight the blank DVD from the list of media devices on the left side of the window.

9. Go to the "Erase" tab at the top of the window.

10. Leave the "Quick Erase" box checked and click "Erase" at the bottom of the window. Disk Utility will now format the blank DVD.
