    I don't believe you can see the exact filesize on the XS32.

    You can get an idea by running though the "DVD video creation" menus; this will show you a green line with how much of a DVD you would be filling, you can then abort and not create it.

    Alternatively you could use a bitrate calculator to calculate the size (as you can get both the length and the bitrate by looking at the title on the XS32). Here is one.

    Could any one help on how to burn a 2.5hours video into a standard DVD-R (in DVD video mode) quickly using XS32. Currently I have to use rate conversion dubbing to copy the content onto a DVDRAM or DVDRW (it take 2.5 hours), then copy the converted video back to HD (take 30 minutes), then burn the content to a DVD-R. It takes more than 3 hours to do that.

    Thanks in advance.

    Either I haven't read your question correctly or you have missed the point of different AV quality settings.

    Set one of the modes to be 4.0 (before recording) and you should get a recording that fits straight onto a DVD-R.

    SP will allow about 2hrs 8 mins on a DVD with a rate of 4.6, when you set the rate it will say at the bottom of the screen approx how much will fit on a DVD.

    For ones you have already done the only way is to do a rate convert which will take 2.5hours to do.

    What I do is use 2 DVD-Rs after recording on the HDD using High Rate Save - more expensive on DVDs - but these days they do not cost very much and it is simple and quick

    I find that using high rate save I can typically get 1 hr 20 minutes on a DVD. As an example I managed to get all of 2 hours and 50 minutes on Saving Private Ryan on 2 DVDs (again recorded at high rate save)
