Out Of Hard Drive Space

Question

Well, I'm hoping someone can help me (this was the closest post I could find that related to my problem). Here's a breakdown of whats going on. 2 weeks ago, I created a project, burned it to disc and had no problems. Since then, I haven't made any changes to my desktop. Yesterday, using Roxio Creator 2010, I imported my video and then wanted to create a DVD using Roxio My DVD. All was fine until I clicked "Burn". When I did that, it said that "The estimated size of the ISO image or file-set exceeds the available hard disk space. If you continue, content may be truncated. Are you sure?" I can say OK or CANCEL. I click OK and it says that there is not enough space on the destination drive. What I don't understand, is on the previous menu where it says "Burn to Disk" and lists my destination drive: E drive (DVD drive) and underneath that it says the "capacity of the current disc 4706.1 Mb and Estimated size of project 3465.7 Mb" This looks like there should be no problem whatsoever, but for some reason, it is reading that there is not enough space. To try and troubleshoot on my own, I was able to insert a DVD into that drive and it played. I also decided to make a copy of another DVD to see if it had something to do with the burner. Well it didn't, because it burned a perfectly good DVD. I tried multiple other blank discs that were the same brand from the one I burned 2 weeks ago. It just doesn't make sense.

 

I'm at a loss here...Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. I am so FRUSTRATED!

Thank you!!

I moved your post to its own thread since it had nothing to do with the thread you posted in nor do you have the same program.

 

Actually it makes perfect sense. The error message says you do not have enough free space on your hard drive, it is not talking about your DVD. You are creating an iso or folder set on your hard disk and you do not have enough free space on that disk to do that.

 

Are you trying to burn to the DVD as well as to an image file or folder set? You will get that error message if you try to burn to a DVD as well as create an image file or folder set and you do not have enough hard disk space.

 

How much free space do you have on your hard drive? Have you cleaned up your hard drive lately?

Thank you for the response. Yes, I've cleaned the hard drive(s) and on one I have 2GB free and the other has over 100GB. The drive that the movie is stored on is the one with the 100 - I assumed that Roxio would then create the iso image (don't know what that is) on the drive that the movie was stored on. The program its self is installed on the 2GB drive. Perhaps I'll have to uninstall it from that one and reinstall it on the emptier one. Do you think that will help? What I don't understand is that it worked perfectly fine two weeks ago and now all of a sudden it doesn't.

An iso image file is an exact copy of what will finally be burned to a DVD. It will be created in the location you specify. With only 2GB free you will have extreme problems doing anything. Installing the program on the larger drive will not help. I assume the 2GB drive is your system drive. For proper operation of the program you should have at least 10GB free,

When you have limited HD space and are trying to burn to a DVD there are two ways that your hard drive can run out of space:

[1] You have set your temporary files to be saved on your small drive.

To check and fix this, in MyDVD go to the top toolbar Tools>Options. Check where DVD temp files are being saved, and if necessary change that to the larger drive. Typically your temp files will require as much space as the DVD you're creating. They are deleted again when the DVD is complete.

[2] You are making an ISO or a Folder Set, and saving to the small drive

When you're ready to burn your creation to either disc or file/folder, click the red Burn button and check the Burn Project dialog box which is shown.

If you don't mean to burn a Folder Set or an image, ensure those boxes are unchecked. If you do mean to burn to a hard disk file/folder, use the browse button for that option to set where the file/folder will be saved. Then click Burn.

This way the space on your small drive will be preserved, and any image or folder will be written to the large drive.
