Hi,

I'm currently trying the latest(!) Ultraiso yet experiencing difficulties adjusting the free space on the DVD media...

I noticed that even though I set 4.37 (pretty ambiguous) as default, size-meter only shows 4474mb available (which AFAIK is standard for DVD-Video) rather than optionally changeable standards of; 4483mb for DVD+R and 4489mb for DVD-R. Later on I noticed clicking on size-meter is a shortcut for this WITH unexpected addition of "Detect Media Type"...

Unfortunately it detects a 4483mb medium as 4482mb (1md short for what?) and is quite annoyingly non-saveable. Every time you restart program; you HAVE TO have a DVD inside, HAVE TO detect every time, HAVE TO consider 1mb discount (yes I'm really using ALL 4483mb all the time with specialty software)...

I'd like to ask why we can't choose these "standard" sizes of 4483 and 4489 out of a listbox but "have to" detect every time? Things like these are quite a turn-off for a user who's just in trial period of searching a decent ISO manager...

It's a bug in my eyes for a software claiming to be in its v9.x stage, not a major but a annoying minor...

Thanks anyway...

Tips:
1) In fact, capacity of CD/DVD is evaluated by SECTORS (2048 bytes per sector)
2) UltraISO caculates free space in MB by (SECTORS * 2 / 1024).
3) Please mind the difference of caculation algorithm between tools

PS: The feature for saving newly detected media capacity will be realized in next release of UltraISO.
