Fit To Dvd Not Working (with Just 2 Avi Files!)

Question

Dear all,

 

Using the Creator Premier version came with my new Dell & Vista.

Created a new project and added just two avi files, with a resulting size of 5.7Gb.

Selected the Fit to DVD disc to allow them to be burnt.

 

When I select the Burn Option, the burn button inside the burn dialog is greyed out. It complains about not having enough space in the DVD (-1027MB).

 

Any ideas how to force the "Fit to Disc"? It seems no to be working on my installation.

 

Thanks a lot in advance.

 

Josep

if the actual length of your AVI files are too long, say exceed 3 hours, they can't be burned as DVD video no matter how much compression it's used.

If you have Roxio Disc Copier in your Creator Premier, try to "burn" your project to an ISO image, and then use disc copier to copy the ISO down to a standard DVD. I don't know if "Creator Premier" has this invaluable program.

 

Post #37 from Brewski on this thread (click) says how he did it after we all had a great exploration of the process. :)

Well, I've just burnt a DVD with same two avi files using Nero 7. So it shouldn't be a size problem.

Of course, nero warned me that it went to reduce video quality in order to fit everything into a DVD.

 

Any other suggestions?

TIA,

 

Josep

That's exactly what Roxio Disc Copier would do if you 'burned' to an ISO and then used Disc Copier to burn the ISO to disc.

 

Do you need other suggestions?

Creator Premier being a "crippled" version of EMC 10 perhaps does not have the capability to create ISOs and does not have DiscCopier.

Yes, I queried that in post #3.

 

Perhaps Josep will be kind enough to come back and tell us.

Hello all,

 

I've just tried what you suggested.

I made an ISO with Creator Premier. Then, I went to the Copy/Write an image option. I selected the image (5,4GB) and the blank DVD (4,7GB) to finally get the error message "Inserted disk has not enough space available. Insert a 5,4GB disc).

 

I saw no option inside the Copy/Write an image where I could select fit to DVD.

 

Probably my Creator Premier is a light version (it came with my new Dell) with limited capabilities? (I could make perfectly a DVD with same two films using Nero 7).

 

Thanks a lot for your help.

 

Regards,

 

Josep

That would be my guess. Those stripped down versions frequently lack the most useful features. :(

Josep,

 

I think you hit the copier bug that EMC 9 and 10 both have. See this topic, especially post #37.

 

When you get the error message "Inserted disk has not enough space available. Insert a 5,4GB disc" don't believe it! Either select another drive, and then reselect your burner, or alter the burn speed and then try again. Copier should then accept the disc and shrink the ISO down to fit on it.

 

It seems it takes the changing of the selected drive or selected speed and re-trying the burn, to sort Copier's head out. This is a known but so far un-fixed bug.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Brendon,

 

Whatever I do, the burn button remains grayed out...

I think I'll have to look for other dvd authoring software alternatives, though.

Plan B: Burn to Folder at best quality.

 

Point Copy & Convert to the folder and it should work as advertised. I have burned 4 and 6 hour long projects this way.

That's Video Copy and Convert [Copier 9] not Copy & Convert 3 which is a different 'suite'.
