You have me intrigued.... I've been using k3b for many years and have 
never had to adjust the disc size to burn - in fact I didn't know that 
one could even do this in k3b. Certainly in k9copy you can adjust the 
output file (to 4400MB for dvd5 and to 8000MB for dvd9) after which k3b 
just knows which size disc it it burning but I never knew that one could 
control the size in k3b. Live and learn.....

Where in k3b is this adjustment to be found, thanks?
