Burning DVDs with a small harddisk

Somebody I know wants to burn DVDs on an old laptop.  

He wants to use an external DVD burner via USB connection.  He only has 1GB free space on his hard disk and will use NERO.  I understand from the specs you need at least 4.7GB free space to burn a DVD.

I would welcome some ideas that would solve this problem other then getting a bigger HDD or deleting files (The maximum capacity of this drive is still less then 4.7GB)

Thank you.

Get a USB pen drive of large capacity, or use an external hard drive of sufficient capacity.  Otherwise, it just isn't going to happen...at least not with a full disk.  If he's got 1gb of free space on the HDD, then he can record about 500mb to the DVD.
