    Problem deleting photos/movies to free up space
    I have filled up my hard drive with pictures and movies in iPhoto to the point where I only had 198 MB left and I didn't have room for anything else. I couldn't even get emails at one point and I can not do any updates. So, I started to burn the movie/picture files from iPhoto to a DVD then deleting them from iPhoto. I had freed up almost 10GB of memory. So, I restarted my computer thinking it would help make more memory and when I restarted my computer it says I only have 281 MB left. I have NO IDEA what happened. All the photos I copied seem to be gone. My trash can is empty and the trash on iPhoto is empty. I just got Snow Leopard with iLife and iWorks and the 2 TB time capsule but, I can't use it until I free up some space on my computer. I am so frustrated. I guess, I should just keep taking off more photos?
