    I have a question about settings...My hard drive crashed awhile back..forcing me to completely reinstall my xp windows.
    And now when i try to burn a movie..I get a message that there is not enough space....and when i ignore the message and burn a DVD movie anyway,
    and then play the movie..about half way thur the movie it gets all messed up and the last half of the movie is not recorded.

    I figure my settings for my software are incorrect... any advice?

    You don't say what software you are using for the back-up. I will assume it is CloneDVD. You are trying to put a double layer (8.5gb) disc on a single layer (4.7gb). You need to select DVD5 as the output which is a single layer disc so the program knows to compress it. A dual/double layer is DVD9.
