Question

Hello.....

 

In January I bought a new PC with Windows MCE. To be honest with you, creating a DVD of a show recorded with MCE is a crap shoot. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have searched the 'net several times since then looking for various solutions till something works. Then things that work fine for a few weeks mysteriously stop working. Well despite my best efforts, I am stuck again. Can't get past Create Failure error anymore. The DVD create process gets up to 29% complete, gets stuck there for a while, then the Create Failure error occurs. I assume the 'memory allocation error' in the log is the problem. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks a bunch! FYI... I am at Update Rollup2, MCE 2005 5.1.2715.2883. Here is my log:

Try performing a Disk Cleanup operation on your C drive. From Explorer, right-click on the C drive and select Properties. Click on the Disk Cleanup button. You can then select what type of files to delete. You may also need to clean out your TEMP directory.
