I had this problem before... it turn out the disc I was trying to copy was DVD9 (or Dual Layer disc). Dual layer disc can store double the amount of the original DVD disc (which is 4.7G).
Check the disc you are copying, if it say dual layer, you need a blank disk with dual layer... and make sure your copier can support this function as well. Another method of checking your source disc is put it in the computer and see how much space...

It happens to me also ALL the time with mine. I have a 7 disc duplicator machine I do for weddings and special events. And it's a real pain and costly to have that come up when you need the project done soon. My solution is to change the brand on the master disc. Burn another copy of the master disc on your computer to another brand and then use that brand as the new "master" in the duplicator. (1 sollution)
"Target Overflow" basically means that either sometimes the master disc has too much information on it to burn than the disc you want to copy can hold, or sometimes a CD may be in by mistake instead of DVD. If you have a Dual layer DVD disc you want to make copies of and you only have the basic 4.7GB standard DVD blank disc..it's not enough storage space on the disc to burn so you will see that error also. It should really say "not enough space to burn) lol..but I guess that's asking too much.
Sometimes all is correct with the DVD size and it'll come up for no reason (usually the master disc is still spinning and hasn't stopped but you've already pressed the "Copy" button, it's not "ready" so an error of "target overflow" will come up)
I've had mine for 6 years so I've done alot of testing and trial and error to come to the above conclusions.
I find that these brands work for the best "thorough" burns.
whatever software you are using to burn dvd;s, make sure the right burner drive is selected. if it is selected properly and still having an issue. that means the dvd writer is busted and can't detect a blank disc place into it. in that case, have it replaced.
May I suggerst you reseat all internal connections on your drive? (Power, IDE or what ever) Make sure you are grounded to the case while you do this and you have the power cord disconencted from the wall.
Close up everything and re-connect all the stuff you disconencted.
After you do that, remove the device via the device manager.
Reboot - let windows refind the device. Have the driver CD ready if applicable.
your DVD ROM's lens has became weak. and it cannot be repaired. But
if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will
start working agaain but be careful remember that no power should be
attached to ROM. pls rate me thankyou
