    disapearing hard drive?
    I have been having problems writing dvd with popcorn and realised that free space on my hard drive was disapearing i thought i had about 20 odd gig free then found i only had 10 and when i tried to write the most recent disc which failed i only had 2 left. can anyone tell me where these missing gigs are? i have tried searching my hard drive and totalling up files and now i think there is almost 40 gig hiding somewhere! I have a G4 with 128 gig hard drive. thanks

    Sounds like the unburned disk images are eating up your space.

    do a quick web search for their file format suffix - might be something like .iso - and try using finder to look for those.

    Alternatively, in finder, use the "search for" on the side bar and look in the things you used today (or whenever they were created).
