Question about HP DVD Movie Writer Dc3000 DVD+RW Burner
Error message comes up when i try to record. "Ther is not enough free space on drive c for the encoding data." The DVD that I'm using is new, never used DVD+R right out of the package.
This is nothing to do with the writer, the space it is refering to is your c drive hard drive space. When a dvd burns a video or photos etc, it has to write the image of whatever you are getting it to write it to your hard drive first, then when all the files are checked and encoded it will only then burn to the dvd disc. Your problem is you do not have enough free space on your hard drive for this to happen, that is why an error is reported. A dvd needs atleast 5GB of hard drive space to encode it first then burn it so check in the properties of your C drive to see how much space you have left, a minimum of 10GB is recommended.
