Maximum file size with Adobe Media Encoder?

I seem to be having a problem when converting files in AME.

I'm converting .m2v files into quicktimes files, using the DVCPRO HD 1080i50 codec. No sound is being exported with the audio.
Dimensions are 1440 x 1080, frame rate, field type and aspect are locked at 25, Upper First and HD Anamorphic 1080 (1.333) respectivly.

I've encoded about eleven other files of the same type without fail, however this certain file is at 1.7gig compared, where as every other file I wanted to encode is under 1gig.

I'm using an Asus N53SV with 16gig of ram, so I'm sure my laptop can handle whatever is thrown at it. I'm using a 64bit operating system on Windows 7 home premium Service pack one.


Processor: Intel Core i7 - 2630QM CPU @ 2.00Ghz
RAM Memory: 16gig
Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce FT 540M

Progam: Adobe Media Encoder CS5.5 ver.


The error log reads:



- Source File: G:\Digital Postcard\To convert\Untitled-6.m2v

- Output File: G:\Digital Postcard\To convert\

- Preset Used: Custom

- Video: 1440x1080, 25 fps, Upper, Quality 100

- Audio:

- Bitrate: DVCPRO HD 1080i50

- Encoding Time: 00:09:50

04/19/2012 03:19:30 AM : Encoding Failed


File size that I want to encode is 1.7gig


I'm assuming either the file is corrupt or I don't have sufficient specs to handle the large file.
Any help will be great,

    There are no file size limits to the software beyond what would be imposed by the operating system itself and the file format of the drive.


    So...assuming you have enough drive space, something else is going on.
