    .........."there is not enough disk space in the temporary directory"

    that is exactly what it says when i have done everything and am ready to make disk

    format is DVD (2 hours)
    tv system is PAL

    then i click the arrow for next page
    i select burn to disc then click for next page
    it already has my burner selected - i select optimal for burn speed then click the arrow to begin

    thats when the message comes up !

    would appreciate any help from you experts out there

    You are out of space on the HD. You are working too close to the max limit and it is telling you exactly that. Clear out some junk from the HD, delete any files not necessary and then defrag. It should work once you get more space on C drive.

    Jerry is on the button. Your HD needs room to move around, .5g isn't near enuff extra space. Some programs can use as much as 10G's to do a movie file.

    I don't know how big your HD is but if you plan to do much video work you could add a 80G HD with 2mb buffer nowadays for 40.00. (be sure and format it NTFS).

    Otherwise you're gonna be fighting this problem constantly.

    I record movies with WinDVD Creator 2 on DVD+R and use mode "DVD 2 hours". It works well. But if I'm trying to record long movie on DVD, I get information from program that "Burning process is OK", while movie's length on disk is only about 2hr5min. Though during authoring it shows enough free space on DVD (up to 1.5 Gb out of 4.7).

    Is there any opportunity to change any options to record on 1 DVD movies longer than 2 hrs?

    vorob, sorry I took so long, I just checked my PM's.

    OK, why are you using WinDVD Creator 2 for DVD backup?

    This is an excellent app for menu authoring, making dvd's from downloaded files, VHS, home video, etc. but I would use shrink and decrypter for my DVD backup. They are both free and can be found here in AD. There are also guides and I would be more than happy to assist if you need it(I even have a simple guide I wrote you can have to get down the basics if you want it)

    Anyway, to answer your question, You can increase the length by clicking on tools, then options, then direct recording tab, then in the drop down menu under record profile you can choose anywhere from 60 to 240 minutes. Of course the longer the file the worse the quality.

    hope this helps...:>)

    Bigorange - thanks a lot. It worked!
    I used WinDVD not for backup but for recording on DVD movies in .avi format. Now I can record movies longer than 2 hrs on one DVD.

    Your welcome, did you try shrink for a regular DVD backup?

    BTW, Intervideo's DVDCopy 2, the same people that make WinDvd Creator, is one of the best Backup apps on the market IMHO. The quality only gets beat by RB/CCE which takes about 4 hours, while Copy 2 takes about 30 to 45 minutes.

    hi, winDVD creator works for me when i create vcd but now that i bought dvd+r's n i've been using it, i haven't been able to create anything. the "make movie" process would complete n it goes to format and somewhere between format and erase disk an error will pop up and says "unknown error" and something n my long wait for the creation of the movie would just close =(...does anyone know how I can fix this problem? it's quite vague i'm sorry but that's really how it is. thanks

    Try opening Creator 2, open tools, click on options, choose the direct recording tab, and then choose the appropriate DVD setting according to the length of your video.

    To Big Orange.

    I was out of country for a while and couldn't answer.
    Thank you for advice. I'll try this program to backup DVDs.
