could someone please offer some advice regarding a problem that i have when trying to burn a dvd. I have an NEC ND 2500A dvd writer and I am using nero vision express. I have a 1.4gb avi file that i am trying to put on to dvd. I have selected the file in the appropriate window in nero vision express and then nero has done its transcoding for about 10 hours !!! At the bottom of the nero progress screen it is avising me that the file has been converted to 4.3gb and that 4.38gb is available to write to. However when I try to burn the disc it fails and gives a message saying disc has insufficient space, insert a new disc with enough space.
The discs that i am using actually state that they are 4.7gb on the packaging. So, why does the dvd writer or nero only think that there is 4.38gb available to write to? If it thinks that there is 4.38gb to write to, why does it say that there is insufficient space to write a 4.3gb file to?
Any advice would be appreciated,
