    Over the past few months I have downloaded numerous videos, converted them using ConvertXtoDVD then burned them to DVD so they can be played through the TV. Likewise, rather than put an original DVD in the reader drive, a blank in that of the burner and then make a copy, I have rather put the original in the burner drive, copied it to HD then replaced the original with a blank & burned it. By doing this I am told that all the copied videos will be taking up valuable space on the HD, if this is so then how do I locate and delete them please as my HD is over three quarters full?

    My GUESS is that they would be in C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\My Documents\My Videos ( or My Pictures )

    Then highlight\select them and hit the delete key.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    May be worth downloading Treesize Free, and finding the largest directories, and drilling down, and so on and so forth?

    If you're using Windows XP...

    Just hold down the WinKey and press F (WinKey + F) to invoke the Windows Search Utility.
    Narrow the search to Pictures, music, or video.
    Then tick Video and click Search.

    This will find and list all of the video files on your PC. Select and delete all you want.
