Yikes! What source are you capturing it from!?!?! *l*
Just the other day, I captured my vacation onto my hard drive, through my mini-dv camcorder, using firewire.
It's currently sitting uh.....*thinks* something like 4.5 hours. It's about 36gigs (uncompressed, dv format). I imagine when I get through editing it, it's gonna be about 32 gigs....then I'll add sound tracks, etc.. That'll be about 3 dvd-r disks.
But as for your situation, I think that myDvd might be capturing / saving it as avi or some other uncompressed format, that's sucking up more than it should.
I'll tell you now that I'm using a Mac G4 QuickSilver 933, with 1024mb ram, as well as a 60gb (that came with it), and a 40gb wd 7200rpm drive that the video is sitting on.
Which dvd burner are you using? Perhaps we can get through this together, since i haven't burned up any dvd disks yet myself. Luckily, I have a couple verbatim dvd-rw disks to practice on.
