    I moved a bunch of **** around to my external drive (K) and deleted a bunvh more and this worked temporarily. Now, and I'm not sure how because I'm a computer dolt and I'm sure someone like you could get on my computer and fix it right up away, I seem to be back to the same spot I was before with the same message. Obviously I'm missing something that is refilling the C drive and filling it up again automatically. Any ideas? I tried to take snapshots with print screen and attach them but I can't even figure out how to do that. I am getting so frustrated with this thing. Any new ideas I might use to fix things or ways to provide you more information that might help you help me?

    Hope no one gets upset, I tried to get advice from the same expert but presumably not on now. So the issue is the same. For some unclear reason after clearing out a bunch of space on drive C with moving some to external drive K and deleting some the properties on "my computer" indicated I had nearly 25 % of the space available and I was able to make some more DVD's. However, now something seems to be autopopulating drive C and it's full again. I'm a computer dolt and I know if one of you experts was sitting here it would probalby take 5 minutes to figure out the problem and fix it and get things up and running and, in the end, I may need to call someone in to to just that. So any ideas where to look to determine why this is happening? I tried to make some visuals using print screen but I couldn't even figure out how to do that. Help anyone!

    OK so here's my problem. Like I said I'm a computer idiot so I'm not even sure which files are OK to delete without messing something important up. Something keep sfilling up my C drive, I assume automatically and it is not only effecting my video production (which is now essentially at a standstill) but also my computer in general runs rediculously slow now. I'm afraid that even if I erase some stuff and it starts working it will just fill up again automatically in short order and I'll be in the same bind. In the meantime is there any way I can change my primary destination folder to my K (external) drive and if so how? How do I locate where that primary destination folder is now so I can move it to K (if possible)? Sorry, I find this stuff very confusing.

    Above I have all that has gone on before. Can someone please read the whole thing and give me basic advice that any idiot (basically what I am regarding computers) can follow to fix this problem, step by step. I'm getting desparate.

    After reading all the solutions several times and spending a lot of time on the computer clicking back and forth the light finally came on and I was able to clear the space.

This simply means what is says you are running very low on disk space and there is not enough left to download your source file(s) from the Everio HDR. You will need to delete some documents or archive them to get back more space. Another idea is to run a cleaning tool over the system to see how much space can be cleared up by deleting temporary files and junk and browsing history and unused files that are no longer needed or in use. If you don't have one then download Ashampoo from www.ashampoo.de and use it for 30 days for free. I have run this across loads of different systems and never had any issues with using it for the past 4 years. If you still don’t have enough space then you will need to buy some more disk space - currently around $75 / £50 per 1Tb drive which should give you enough extra space to download HDR files to and edit them in Premiere.

Dear User,
The remaining free capacity on Drive where the selected folder is located to download data is not sufficient. thats you are facing this problem.
Therefore you need to select the project folder on someone other drive which have sufficient free capacity. normally people use this project folder in mydocuments or C: drive.
please change the project folder drive in adobe premier to avoid this problem.

I am hopeful that you will understand it.

Thanks and regards

That means that the primary destination folder is set to a disk that is full.
Check the disk that you are using , and delete files or copy files into an external disk.
To select a different folder, simply set the import to a different disk (it is the disk, not the folder that is full). To empty the disk, select data files that you can move and copy them into an external disk or delete them.
Also ensure that destination folder is not set to CD/DVD unit, you cannot import/export to DVD/CD you need to burn a disk instead.

I would first start by uninstalling programs that you do not use. You can do this through "Control Panel".
XP: "Control Panel"-->"Add/Remove Programs"
Vista: "Control Panel"-->"Programs and features"(classic view)
Right click on the program you want to remove and select "remove". You might be greeted with a few prompts asking if that is what you really want to do.

Disk Cleanup:
"Start Menu"-->"My Computer"-->right click on hard drive and select "properties". A new window will pop up, you want the "general" tab that shows the pie chart of your hard drive space. Below that pie chart you will notice a button that says "Disk Cleanup". Click it and follow the prompts.

Hope this helps.

Try burning an iso image file instead from the program, then you can use the built in mac software to burn that disk image file to a disc. Sometimes in video editing there is a problem with the process of compiling the video to a disk. Try a simple very short project with a dvd-rw (reusable) disc to see if it still gives the error.

The program will not load , error message not enouph memory


Hold the CTRL key down while this software is starting. This process will prompt you to recover the catalog. If you don't see this pop window then try it again as timing this right will ensure you see the window.

If your catalog cannot be recovered then rename the hidden file psa.prf - This file can located under your user profile folder:

Windows 2000 / Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\[username]Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\3.0\Organizer

Vista or Windows 7 - C:\Users\[username]Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\3.0\Organizer

When I try to burn disks on Adobe Premiere Elements 7 I get an error that says"insufficient disk space on drive for creating temporaryburning files" What can I/must I do to fix this?


You don't have enough room on the drive designated as the "tempory files" drive. Check under preferences - there should be an option for "scratch" disks where you can see which drive it is. Then either make more room on that drive - or change the option to a different drive that has more room.

Photoshop does not work on vista


When Adobe began shipping Photoshop® Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere® Elements 3.0 software in September, final versions of Microsoft® Windows® Vista were not available to complete the testing required to ensure compatibility.
Shortly after Windows Vista becomes available to consumers, Adobe plans to release updates for Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 to provide compatibility with Windows Vista.
Updates for existing Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 owners will be available as a free download from adobe.com, and updated Vista-compatible versions of Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Premiere Elements 3.0 will become available in the same timeframe.

Photoshop's Primary Scratch & Windows primary paging file on the same volume


this is not a hardware error actually photoshop writes temporary files, for which it uses hard drive, its alway a better to have scratch disk other then the drive where its installed, you can change this, by going to edit, preferences, then check plug ins-scratch disk, check your first scratch disk other than c, say the drive which has the maximum space, then select any drive
how do you like the solution please rate it i will appreciate your comments

Program switches off


Premiere Elements does not get along with Everio camcorders at all, mainly due to the video format. You can convert the video files to DV-AVI and solve the problem.
