    I have a DVD (Video TS folder) that I want to convert to an image. The total size is 4.5GB which to my understanding will fit on a single layer DVD.

    When I click "Start" on imgburn why is it asking me to select a layer break??

    I have done this before with larger DVDs which will be burned onto a double layer DVD.... in that situation a layer break makes sense.

    Because it's larger than what will fit on a DVD5.

    4.37GB is about the max.

    DVD-R and DVD-RW supports single side 4.37 GiB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double sided 8.75 GiB* DVDs(called DVD-10).

    Yep, it's the same with hard drives, just because the disc say's it holds 4.7gb does not mean it will.
    You have to love how they calculate these things.......
