buffer too large error when burning DVDs with Nero

by frazza / January 4, 2007 10:31 AM PST

Hi all,

I receive the above error message when attempting to burn data onto a DVD, and the burn then fails. The Nero burn report is at the bottom of this pleade for help!

I have a Pioneer DVR-110, Nero V6.6, NVidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 graphics card, W2000, 20gig hard drive (yer don't start!) which is partitioned 50/50 into C drive (programs) & D drive (data). Nero is on C drive which has 4.7gig free space. D drive has only 1.89gig free. It doesn't seem to matter how many gig I try to burn, the same error comes up, even when I tried to burn less than 1 gig just to test it.

The DVR burns CD's without any problem.

I took my machine to the computer store to have this problem fixed, they charged me $45 and told me the DVD burner is fine (presumably hardware only!). I have also reinstalled Nero, but no success.

I read somewhere I might need to upgrade the driver for my graphics card (don't understand why???) but could not find the driver on Nvidia's website. Having said this I also have Roxio 7 which wouldn't even launch the DVD module quoting error message " ... your display adapter does not fully support DirectX 9.0 3D features .. update your driver .."

Any help appreciated please. PS - I am a bit of a computer novice so if you pretend you are responding to your grandmother then I'll have a better chance of understanding you!! Happy

Thanks in advance

Seems some housekeeping is needed.

... but how do I go about doing the clean up if I can't remove stuff off my drives by buring to DVD?? I don't have an external hard drive.

Sorry, but there must be "something" that can go.

And even if you note you don't have an external drive, prices have never been better for that.

Suggestions for lack of disk space.
by zepper / January 9, 2007 12:06 PM PST

Download a copy of CCleaner (CrapCleaner) - I'd suggest getting it from http://www.majorgeeks.com to be sure your downloaded programs are clean. Let it do its thing but don't get into the advanced stuff now. Don't let it delete all your cookies as it will want to. Keep them (uncheck) and use Spybot or AdAware to remove the hinky cookies as most cookies can be useful on sites you frequent (retains passwords and such when you check "Remember Me" boxes).

Uninstall any application programs (ones that you installed or came pre-installed on your system) that you haven't used in the last six months. Know what they do so you can be sure they are safe to remove, then DO IT! Be very harsh with this one!

If CC didn't empty your Recycle bin, do that too. If you have Norton's Recycle bin protection (or similar) running, empty that and uninstall or disable it - only rank noobies or morons need that. Reduce the space the Recycle Bin reserves to 100MB or less per partition (unless you are in the habit of frequently deleting things that you don't intend to delete) - right click on the Recycle bin, click on properties. I think the default is to reserve 10% of disk space for the Recycle bin - that is WAY excessive. If you have XP, or a 3rd party System Restore program, clean out any outdated Restore Points - generally all but the latest few can go.

Finally get some more RAM - 256MB is small by today's standards and forces your system to use Virtual Memory (swap file = HDD space) too much. This will speed up your system very noticeably as well as reducing greatly Win's dependence on disk space. I consider 512MB to be minimum for Win 2k or XP (regardless of what M$ says) - the more the merrier.

Once you've done all the uninstalling and deleting you can, do a checkDisk or Scandisk on your drive followed by a Defrag. Now you won't be able to believe the performance improvement you've wrought... Wink And your burning software should have plenty of free space for its scratch (buffer) files.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
