Default More Apple MacBook woes! :(

Hey people,

As the title suggests, my MacBook's giving me more troubles of sorts.

I had about 13gb of hard disc space free this morning. Using a 3rd party software called Mediafork (I have used it without a hitch before), I tried ripping a wedding dvd onto my notebook. 1st I tried ripping it to the mp4 format. It ripped but refused to play. Gave some error I don't quite remember now. So I trashed the file and deleted it from the trash bin. Then I tried ripping it as a avi. There was no coordination between the video and the sound. So i trashed this file too and deleted it from the bin. I then open iTunes and play music from my playlist. I kept giving me some low disk space msg. I checked my space, and I notice that there's only 160mb(!!!) of memory remaining! I emptied my cache and all. Still no use.

What the dickens is the problem now?! Mac gurus... please help!

The answer lies in your library. Not in your applications. I suspect a copy of the DVD is there. Perhaps an incomplete rip.

Correct use of the fnder will help you locate the large file.

search for recently modified files & see the list that throws up. You should be able to identify the culprit(s).

Correct use as in? I went to my library, changed to view by date created, then using spotlight I searched for everything possible... .mp4, .avi, NEW (the files name)... no luck.

Any more suggestions?
