im a newbie at this, and everything has been going good so far. but my HD is only 12 gigs, so i run into memory problems late in the creation process. i was wondering when is it ok to delete the files that are created by smartripper since they take up so much room. im not sure if during the process (creating dvd rips in divx form) any of the programs reference these files again after you have created the avi file with DVD2AVI. if anyone could help me out on this it would be greatly appreciated. thank you!
