View Full Version : Ahead Nero DVD burning program

15-05-2005, 08:19 PM
I am running Windows XP. Whenever I try to burn data to a DVD in my new DVD drive I get a message "There is not enough space to burn this compilation onto this medium. Please insert another medium that provides more space." I have tried using 8 X DVD+R 4.7 GB as well as DVD + RW 4 X also 4.7 GB. The online manual has given me no insights? Any suggestions?

Hi, Welcome to PressF1 :)

Do you also have a CD drive installed in your machine, or did this new DVD drive replace it? If you have both, make sure you are selecting the correct drive to use when burning. How much data are you trying to put on the DVD?

I agree with Jen. If you use Nero StartSmart there is a drop down box in the top centre of the screen where you can choose the type of media, CD, CD/DVD, or DVD. I have been caught with this in the past.

Hi Paulafd8,

There is a programme called DVD Shrink 3.2 you might like to have a look at. It's used to compress DVD format. http://www.dvdshrink.org/what.html

There is also a lot of very useful information regarding DVD media at this location : http://www.dvdhelp.us/php/forums/sitemap.php?limit=NO&
