Are you clearing out your proxy files? Are you clearing out your temp files? Are you doing any disk maintenance?
What program from EMC 10 are you using to create create you "picture DVD"?
BTW, the size of your source files is irrelevant to the final size on a DVD. A standard 4.7GB DVD can hold 60 minutes of video at best (HQ) quality.
Why are you not saving your projects? A project file takes up only a few kb on a hard drive and you will need it if you ever want to make any changes to a project.

Not sure this is correct for your old version.Have a look.

When using Video Wave and particularily after doing a lot of editing, periodically clean the proxy files  - Tools-Options- Clear proxy file.  These are temporary files that build up over time but should be automatically deleted when you reboot.

ok i have sorted it if anyone else is having problems having there hard disk space robbed
try this(it worked for me but i cant be responsable for what you click so if it go`s wrong
dont blaim me !!) and if you want to save your projects [u]DONT DO THIS[/u]

ok first my computer,your documents,delete slideshow.dat and slideshow.dmsm files this will free up space
then my computer,the drive where documents and settings are your drive could be ( C: or D: where yours is)
in one of the folders look for application data, next roxio folder then mydvdtemp folders and remove files
next videoUI10 then proxy folder remove files (BUT NOT PROXYLOG) CLICK BACK then media manger 10 remove all files BUT NOT PSOD FILE
and your done check your hard drive for the incress in space
and after defrag( system tool or defraggler)

hope this helps :)

One tip about defragging - don't just run it and leave it - keep doing it until it doesn't move any more files. Sometimes it can take half a dozen or more passes to finish it off
If it ain't broke, fiddle with it until it breaks, then fiddle with it until you get it fixed
