Not Enough Space on Disk??? (DVD-R Question)

Last night I was trying to burn some home videos to a DVD-R using Ulead Moviefactory. I compiled the files that I wanted into the program, the time added up to 46 minutes and 2.3 GBs. It did all of it's Video/Audio multiplexing (whatever that is) and when it went to burn...

"Not enough space on disc, replace with another and try again".

The DVD-R I was using was brand new, but I put in another...same message. What's going on here? I have enough space. I have enough space, dammit!!! I'd like to send this video to my mother by Valentines day, but it won't burn...any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Well alot of CD-R discs can't even hold 1 GB so what is the capacity on your disc?

I think a DVD-R is being used, which should hold over 4GB...

Do you have any other programs to test it with? Nero perhaps?

I don't have any other programs to test with, what would be a good one (besides Nero, I can't stand Nero).

They are 4.7 GB discs.

Does Movie Factory allow you to create a disk image file? If so, try that and see what the size of the result is.

DVD Workshop shows the space needed (along with space available) in advance. I havenít used Movie Factory in a while, so I donít remember if it also does this. But the programs seem very similar, IIRC.

Ulead products are very weird when it comes to transcoding (I think thatís the proper term). I use Dazzle MovieStar to edit all my stuff, and then select the same bitrate in DVD Workshop. That usually eliminates all the processing time. But recently I had a project I recorded at 7 kbs (variable) which gave me a 3.8 GB file. DVDWS had no problem. The same project at 8 kbs resulted in just a tad over 4 GB, but DVDWS wanted to process it and suggested that I would need 6.5 GB.

By doing all the work in MovieStar I save all the hours upon hours of time that Ulead takes, sometimes, as youíve found out, resulting in a no go.

Yeah, like all of them.

He was using a DVD-R in a DVD burner. Same technology as CD-R discs, only it's a DVD instead of a CD. Hence, it has the capacity of a single-layer DVD disc.

do you have a CD/RW installed too?

I know that running two burners that I need to select which one I want to use when starting up a program like Nero or Prassi...any chance that it's looking for the wrong burner?

The only other things I can think of is you got a batch of bad discs or you're using DVD-R instead of DVD+R or vice versa

That sounds reasonable. But Iíve run into problems with Ulead products that are beyond explaining.

I'm not an expert, so my answer or the terminology may be incorrect. I've run into a similar problem in the past. What happened was, the audio on the file wasn't a compatible DVD format, so the DVD Authoring software converted it to an uncompressed PCM or WAV format, which results in a much larger file. I don't remember how I fixed it. I think I re-encoded it to a DVD compliant file with Ulead VideoStudio.

The best place to get advice on making DVDs is in the forums over at VCDHelp.com.

I'm smart enough to use a DVD-R, when I have a DVD-RW drive. No, I'm not using the wrong drive, cause I have a combo...

Still can't figure out what's wrong, it's driving me nuts.
