    I think that what the software is trying to do is create an image file (probably ISO) in your temp dir of the movie or music file that you're trying to burn. The software then burns from that file onto the cd.

    There are probably two solutions. One is to scour the options and menus for something that might say "create image file before burning" or something that denotes that it is doing this.

    The other solution is that you can allow it to still make an image file, but you'll have to either empty out your temporary directory, or enlarge the space allotted for the temp directory, or there may even be an option in some menu in the burning software that allows you to choose where the image file is saved.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Thanks for the response Timeo,

    I've looked through the options listed in the software and haven't come across anything that lets me set the burn image option. I would like to give the second option a shot, only if I knew which folder its asking me to make more space in.

    How many partitions do you have on your hd? Just search for temp in windows file search and then look in any temp folders that you get. One of them might have some large *.img or *.iso files, delete those. Otherwise, just delete everything in all the temp folders.

    Forgot one other thing.

    If I remember easy cd creator correctly, then you burn the cd by choosing an option under the file menu, right? Is there one that says something like "Save image and burn cd" and then just one that says "burn cd"?

    If not, forget I ever said anything. It's been awhile since I used the program.

    Isn't that error saying that your hard drive is not big enough? See how much free space you have left.

    No it's just telling him that there is not enough space in his temporary directory, as the temp dir has a specific allotted amount of space.

    Yep. Nero can do the most of any of them.
