I've been making DVD images and Blu-ray images fine for months. Suddenly I get this error message: Blu-ray Error: "Not enough free storage", Code "25", Note: "Not enough hard drive space". I have 350 GB of free space on my system drive and 45 GB of free space on my data drive. What's up?
The first thing to do is go back to the main page for this sub-forum and, in the area just under Ask a Question, type in your error message

I tried opening Encore as administrator but I still got the Code 25 error. I tied to delete the AuthorScriptHDMV folder, but there is none. I am not trying to burn a Blu-ray DL disc so none of that applies. I don't want to build a blu-ray folder I want to build a blu-ray iso image. It has been working for months and now it is not. I want to fix it.
I have 45 GB of free space on my data drive.
Is that where your project, media and cache files are located? If so, then this post from an Encore engineer may be relevant:
So the space requirement for a 35 GB (Disc Info) project might go to almost 100 GB.
NB: His comments apply to single-layer BD projects as well. The topic in which he answered asked specifically about dual-layer BD.
Well, all I can suggest is to clear another 50 - 100 GB of space on your data drive and try again. Or, reduce the length of your video, which will make the project smaller, and try again. Of course, the shorter video would only be used as a test -- I'm not suggesting you re-edit your project for delivery.
The point is to try something different. Take a big swing initially, then fine tune as necessary.
OK, I took a big swing. I started a whole new Encore project, imported the same Ppro project using Adobe Dynamic Link, made the same 19 chapters, recreated the same menu ,and started to build the iso. After 3 hours I got the Code 25 error message. So then I changed the target diirectory to build the iso on another drive that had 300 GB free and it worked!
Did you clear any space on your data drive? Did you shorten the length of the project? If you didn't do either of those things, then creating a whole new project on that same drive was a waste of time.
If you export it correctly, it will take no more space or time than Encore transcoding it using dynamic link (using Encore or AME as the transcode engine). The advantage of DL is ease of making changes without having a retranscode. Where there are other problems, DL is not worth the trouble.
My goal is to bypass exporting a video file. That takes more time and space on my hard drive.
It actually doesn't. The video needs to be transcoded, so you either do it before import into Encore (preferred) or after. Either way, it takes the same time and space.
