Problem Burning Discs


fhendo

Question

I just installed EMC 8 and when I try to burn a DVD i get stopped by a pop-up box called "Project Validation," which says " Your project contains the following problems:Not enough disc space for temporary files."

 

This is puzzling because EMC 8 is installed on a network hard drive with over 350 gigs of space available. I reinstalled EMC 8 there after i had the same problem when it was first installed on the "D" partition of my computers hard drive which has abou 30 gigs available. I am pressed for space on the "C" partition portion of that drive, but don't know why that should be a problem if I am not working there. Had the same space issues, but no problem with EMC 7 which was installed on my "D" drive, but is now unavailable--but that is a whole nuther Oprah.

 

My computer is a Sony Vaio P4 3.2 G with a 160 gig hard drive.

 

Any ideas as to what my problem is?

Unless you changed where your temp folder is, it is on drive C, and that is why you are getting the message.

Thanks Bruce. Before I impetuosly start moving things around, let me make sure I know what I am doing. The folder you refer to is the "Temp" folder in Windows on my "c" drive, right? Can I just move that to the "D" drive. Can I leave it on "C" and copy to "D", or will the program default to "C." Finally, if I move it, what other cans of worms am I opening.

 

Thanks for you help.

EMC8 is not designed to work over a network. I wouldn't even install a program on any removeable media like an external USB or firewire hard drive. Sometimes Windows gets messed up and drive letters can change (although they shouldn't).

 

As Bruce pointed out, doesn't matter where the program is installed, the default TEMP folder is always on drive C:

Actually, that temp file is in Documents and Settings. To change where the temp files go, while you are doing work, you have to go to My Computer/Control Panel/System, and click on the Environmental Variables tab at the bottom. You can then change the path to a different hard drive.
