Im thinking of installing a firewire card to capture dv images and transfering to CD. Ive heard scary stories about how large thes files can get. As a rule of thumb how many minutes of video can be stored on a CD. It could influence wether I go ahead.

I encode my videos for burning to SVCD format - usually I can get 30-40 minutes of video to a CD.

Just so you have the full picture, I copyed a 14.5 minute clip of video to the HDD - this takes 2.99Gb (default capture is AVI, after I encode the file to MPEG2 this file size reduces).
