Have successfully burned many dvd's over the past couple years with Creator 8, 9, and now 10.

All of a sudden.
..... when I try to burn a project to a dvd.... I'm getting "destination drive doesn't have enough space"

I am burning a project that is about 3127mb.... which would leave about 1572mb unused on a 4.7 dvd.  I have also tried to burn SMALLER projects... which would obviously take up even less space on the dvd...and yet I'm getting this same message... not enough space.  

So the project is NOT too large for the dvd disc........ why am I getting this message?

Have reinstalled Creator 10.........still getting same message.

After reading other posts..... I am now creating an ISO file.......but that's an extra TIME-C0NSUMING step that I've never had to do before.    And I don't yet know if the ISO will burn to dvd... am creaing ISO right now.

thanks in advance

If it is a movie, size doesn't rule, time does.  How long, timewise, are the productions?

It's a collection of video clips I have compiled.....the total project is 1 hour and 34 minutes. (they are all short mpg2 files)
Wouldn't Roxio tell me if it was too long timewise?  I've never heard of this.
thanks

It would also pay to make sure you have enough space on the drive where your temporary files are stored, in case that's what the error message really means.

As Brendon pointed out - the message could also refer to the space on your hard drive. To convert files to DVD requires free space in the order of tens of Gigabytes free for temp files.

How much free space is on your hard drive (and have you defragmented it at all recently)?

You also never answered Bruce's question of how long in time is the project.
