A few things to think on.
If you captuer a 13gb dv-avi file as a 1gb wmv file it is going to lose a
fait bit of quality.
Yes temp file space of the same amount is required.
Windows doesn't like to work with less than 10% free space on the hard
drive, so if you drop below this, it may be causing the problem, how large
is the hdd?
19 minutes may also be the limit for fat32 capture coming into play, do you
have fat32 or ntfs file system on your hdd?
If fat 32 then you could capture in blocks of 18 mins and then put it
together later, or change your file system to ntfs.
