After 13 hours of the transcoding and burning process a box pops up saying that there isn't enough space on the disc to burn this compilation.
Many of us are having this same error "...there isn't enough space on the disc to burn this compilation" when we are well below the disc size limit.
It appears to be an error but SAD that Nero has not made an update or noted anywhere I've found that they have acknowledged a problem.
I am using a Pioneer DVR-A06, Ritex 4x DVD-R and NeroVision Express 184.108.40.206 (the latest version as of this post). I am burning .MPG files which were originally ReplayTV files that I ran through Womble to ensure standard MPG2 file formatting. Frame size is 352x480 NTSC with 48KHz 192Kbps Layer II audio. Nero recognizes the files as a Target Video of 352x480 Half D1 file. I've tried to leave it that way, and have also tried to change it to a 720x480 transcode. No luck either way - same Nero error though the pre-encode meter shows the compilation well below the 4.7gb limit.
I read somewhere that I should uncheck the OVERBURN option in Nero to avoid this type of error, but I did and things were no different. I think the OVERBURN issue is applicable to CD's only and not DVD.
It's VERY frustrating!!!
I have burned the same disc compilation with Sonic MyDVD and Ulead MovieFactory 2 SE and both time had perfect burns.
Which narrows it down to Nero. There appears to be no other explanation.
