These are the possibilities:
1. You are trying to copy a disc which is copy protected and hence it may not show the actual size of disc.Please don't do piracy. I personally recommend it(although most home users buy DVD writer for pirating disc for themselves).
2. The black DVD which you are using is not compatible to your DVD writer make sure your DVD writer is compatible with the disc.There are different technologies used for blank DVDs e.g. DVD+R, DVD-R etc.
3. You are using a bad media, which normally happens in case of low cost local Black DVD, available at the cost of dust.
4. IF you have a lens cleaner disc, try also that. It may help.
Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

Copy video dvd-r to blank cd-r


You won't have any luck doing that. First off, CDs [including CD-Rs] can only hold 70 Mb of data. DVDs can contain anywhere from 4.7 Gb to 50 Gb of data. That amount depends on if the DVD is a single layer, dual layer, BlueRay or High Capacity BlueRay disc. Therefore, a CD simply does not have enough storage capacity to hold the info on a DVD.

Why does DVD flick tell me there is not enough space on disc to burn image please step by step how do I fix it? ?


I assume it is referring to the available space on the DVD blank disc you have inserted in the DVD drive?. Standard DVD-R takes a capacity of 4.7Gb maximum. Dual layer discs are larger. Perhaps you are trying to burn too much data?

You do not mention what type of blank DVD you are using. My personal experience is that many brands of blank DVD-R's have problems in DVD burners that are not the same brand. To a lesser extent, this also happens with DVD+R's.

The reason is that because of patents involving the technologies each DVD disc and DVD burner manufacturer has, the dye formulation of each manufacturers discs varies greatly. If this does not complicate matters enough- laser power, bandwidth, and recording schemes vary between the DVD burner manufacturers.

The safest route is to use DVD media manufactured by the same company as your burner- in your case, Sony. If you can locate blank Sony DVD+R's, they will give you the best results.

If you cannot locate blank Sony media, I have personally had the best results with TDK, Ativa, and Memorex DVD+R's and I avoid using DVD-R's because I end up throwing at least half of them away due to bad copies.

The capacity of burner shows that it is full, how can I empty it?


The 'capacity' refers to the CD/DVD that's in the machine.  Put a blank one in and it'll show "X amount of space free"

MY NEW DVD BURNER WONT BURN ONTO DISCS


I beleive that you may need to reinstall the drive and update the drivers,
if youve got XP OS then you will need SP2 updates also.
the blank dvds are x16 speed and blank cdr are x52 speed.
the format you are going to write in determines the disk you need the use,DVD blanks are 4,7GB and CDR and 700MB

Check your help section to better understand Neros functionality and the many formats it is capable of....

TARGET OVERFLOW ? / ARS-2030 LD COPY SMART PLUS


Your source dvd is most probably a 8.5Gb disc. You will need a blank 8.5Gb disc to copy to.Check out the size of the file on the source disc or the capacity of the source disc. If it is greater than 4.7 Gb.If you are using a 4.7gb to copy to,it will bring up an Overflow message.
