I have experienced frustration with Share attempting to write DVD.
Five attempts and the files size is each time too big. In Projects folder under Share.
There is a longer name, Share it with Trash.
For sure its ability to work out the sizes/compressions is chronic. Do not believe the 21.6GB

I have found that all of the Share features of FCP X to be very unreliable - Youtube, Vimeo, DVD, Blu-ray.
What I do is I Share:Blue-ray and then target it as a disc image, not an optical drive. I then use Toast and burn the disc image (not video) and it works every time. I have a folder called Renders and it has different disc images for different projects, trailers, etc., and I just fire up Toast and burn a disc whenever I need one.

The project I am using was saved to my hard drive successfully in a previous version of FCP X. It is only 21.07 GB. I have changed nothing other than adding 4 chapter markers now that the new version has that capability. To have the chapter marker functionality is why I want to burn a new disc. I can't believe that this addition would push the filesize beyond 25 GB. I also tried to save it as a disc image to my internal hard drive that has 150 GB free space and an external with 1 TB free space. Both attempts failed with an error telling me I did not have enough space available on the disc!

Just tried once more to burn a disc image to my hard drive and again it tells me there is not enough room on the disc. I am at a loss. This is just the latest in a series of problems. FCP X has been nothing but trouble for me. What good is an editing program that can't output a useable file? Each attempt takes several hours to a day to try and the result is the same a big kick in the a**. Can anyone help?

Can only suggest dont use "Share", do complain to Apple each day.
If you have compressor you'll achieve same aim without the repeated frustrations.
This "Share" element to the FCPX app suggests that the management of files is erroneous.
The cost of compressor is possibly cheap in comparison to the problems you are suffering.
best of luck.

I tried reinstalling FCP X. Same result. I get the error: Cant complete burning the disc image. There isn't enough room on the disc. 1 Terabyte isn't enough apparently. Ahhhhhhhhh!!
I tried Compressor but I am new to the program and am not sure if my failure there was my fault. The interface is not very intuitive. I chose H.264 for Blu-Ray from the settings pane and Desktop from the destination pane. In the Job Action Tab in the inspector I selected Create Blu-ray Disc for When job completes and Hard Drive (Blu-ray) as Output Device. I ended up with an H.264 file, no audio file and no disc image. My goal is to create a disc image file. The H.264 file is of no use to me. I intend to play the disc image on my HDTV through my Western Digital Media Player. The WD unit can play a disc image but not an H.264 file or at leaset not the one produced here. I also want to be able to burn copies onto actual Blu-ray discs using the disc image, Toast and my external burner. The WD player can read other formats but I don't know if they will look as good as a Blu-ray disc image. If I try exporting a quicktime file that the player should read what would you suggest for the best result? Will othr formats support the menu and chapter markers that the disc image does?

Question - how much space is on the hard drive the Project is located on - not the drive you told it to save the disc image on?

How much free space is on the drive?

FWIW, I've had a several occasions where either FCPX or Compressor started acting strange in a similar manner. Of all the fixes I tried, repair permissions in Disk Utillity was the most productive,

This is the error message I get. It's after FCP X is done with making the BMV folder and runs that disc burner app. There is about 850 gigs on the drive I want to save the disc image to, lots of space.
I thought maybe the drive the events was on was affecting this process, because it was full. I cleared out about 30 gigs and still got this message.
I never had any problems creating a Blu-ray disc image before. That's the optimcal way, IMHO, because you can burn the BD in Toast as the disc image and Toast won't reencode or do anything, it just burns the disc image and the disc has played on ever Blu-ray player I've tried it on.
Anyone have any more ideas?
