Problem during conversion process. Want it converted on a different drive

Question

Hello, I am unsure if this question has been asked before. I didn't find anything doing a search. If it has I apologize.

 

I have REMC 7.5 installed on my C drive. Recently I purchased an additional hard drive. I now place all my to DVD stuff on this new H drive. When I attempt to burn to DVD, during the conversion process I note that my C drive is still used to write the image. The problem is that my C drive doesn't have much space left and the projects can be large. I wish the program to use my new drive. Is there a way to tell EMC to use the H drive instead of the C drive without my having to reinstall the program there? Thank you for any help.

 

Just to be clear I do not save ISO files to anything, I just do the burn. Most of the stuff I burn I have placed in AVI format so it has to convert to DVD format. This is where the problem is, in the step 2 process where it converts. (The invisible file that it deletes after the DVD is written.) It writes to the C drive. I want it to use my H drive. Thank you again.

It uses your C: drive for temp/swap files. Change it to a different drive. It is Windows default settings that is doing that, not Roxio.

 

To change it, go to MyComputer/Control Panel/System, click on the Advanced button, then click on the Environmental Variables button and change it to wherever you want the temp files. Make sure that you make a folder on the other drive, before you do this.

Which temp files exactly? I've just had a quick look on my machine (XP HE) and on the Environment Variables screen there are TEMP and TMP variables under User Variables buried in the c:\Documents and Settings folder and TEMP and TMP variables under System Variables in the C:\windows folder. A bit of quick googling soon convinced me that it was all starting to look a bit complicated for my taste.

Most people don't have to change those environmental files. On todays computers, about the only reason you'd need to do this is if you have a partitioned hard drive with a VERY small main (c:) drive. If you were having trouble getting the file to render, it COULD BE that the drive has less than the almost 5 GB necessary to render the video, and then you'd need to change the location for the rendering to a different hard drive (or partition).

 

Defragmenting your hard drive between rendering the movie usually solves most rendering problems.

 

This is a different problem than changing where the files and video are stored. You can change where you capture pictures, audio, video and dvds in the Capture\ File\ Options. When you click on the Video location, a box with become active where you can find (or create) a folder on the other hard drive to capture.

 

If you burn to an .ISO file on your hard drive before you burn to a DVD, you can also change that location on the screen where you select Image File(.iso).(browse)

 

Hope that's not too much info.
