if i try to render out a 50 minute file into DV format on premeire in windows xp i get an error saying out of memory even though i have about a billion gigs of HD space free. does it mean RAM? the error is no more specific. it seems like if i try to make a file any bigger than about 1.3 gigs it craps out. is this a windows issue?

What version of Windows and what file system?

Windows had problems dealing with AVI-files bigger than 2 GB, but I think this should be fixed.

to find out your file system go to my computer, right click on the hard drive icon and select properties. file system should show as fat32 or ntfs. if it is fat32 this (i think) is more than likely to be your problem.

to convert it to ntfs:
Just go to the Command Prompt (click start > run > and type come

if it is allready ntfs then i am stumped
