Why is Toast 9 still compressing?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm pretty new to Toast but have figured out most of what I need to know.

    I'm all set to burn a dvd here from an Image File made up of Video_TS Folders, running time under 3 hours. I'm set to burn to a DVD DL.
    The Image File has a size of 5.33 GB and Toast tells me I have 2.62 GB left, yet when I look at the Options I see there is an 18% compression, wether I leave the Fit-to-DVD option unchecked or not.

    My question is: why do I need any compression at all when I have almost 3 GB of free space on my target DVD?

    Not a huge problem but anyone who knows why, I'd be very grateful to find out.

    Thanx in advance :)

    There should be a drop down menu at the lower right corner, by the red button.
    Is dual layer DVD selected?
