Default Record Allocation Space...

I'm recording audio (about 2 hours worth) from a cassette tape in real time and I keep getting this error every 5 minutes or so.

"Recording has been terminated because either a disk is full, a file exceeded the maximum size, or the record allocation space preference limit has been exceeded. If an audio disk if full, use the Disk Allocation dialog to route tracks to a new drive."

My hd isn't full, I still have 25 gb available.

Default Re: Record Allocation Space...

In Preferences ('Operation' page i think) there is an option 'limit record time to...' with a box next to it. you'll prob find this box is set to five mins. you can either disable this or extend the record time.
