a dual layer burn can be a burden to a workstation - it needs 15-25 mins of steady CPU resources.

1. reboot your machine before a burn ( clear out memory )
2. dont try running any other software during the burn / turn off your IM stuff
3. check your hard drive / optimise your hard drive (defrag)
4. memory (RAM) might need upgrade

good luck

Re: Assistance please with burning a DVD

Assuming you get no error messages with Nero & dvd burning rom is set to dvd video and you drag the video ts file into the red video ts file then I would switch media brands.
Verbatim DVD DL -R x4 x8 are the best blank media. Taiyo Yuden have fianlly released a DVD DL-R x8 but I am waiting for these to arrive.
I had all sorts of problems with a new laptop burning dvd coasters. I switched software & even got a new DVD burner under warranty to find I had no more problems when I switched to Taiyo DVDs.

Re: Assistance please with burning a DVD

thanks for the info, I did have Azureus running while I was burning and maybe some other stuff so I'll try shutting everything down. I had major probs burning DVDs when I got new computer last year but its because I used junk media, I switched to the Taiyo Yuden and have had no probs at all since except with the Dual Layer burning.

Thanks again, LG

I made the same mistake when I first started burning DVDs. Now, I turn everything off before I start burning.

You did click the box on the bottom that says DVD-9[8.5 GB]? I'm sure you did but it was another possible problem that ran through my mind.

DVD+Rs are better than DVD-Rs. You can get Verbatims on www.newegg.com and Taiyo Yuden on www.supermediastore.com You might be able to find the Verbatims on supermediastore as well.
Mitsui (MAM-A) GOLD are the best CDR media (gold never oxidizes). If you buy silver discs, you are just throwing your money away.

Re: Assistance please with burning a DVD

You're right, but those are pretty expensive: approx. $2.00 per gold DVD-R and $1.00 per gold CD-R.

As well as not having anything else running, you could try imgburn to burn the discs instead of nero:

And check out the forums for the guides on dl discs, etc:

Re: Assistance please with burning a DVD

Another vote for ImgBurn. It's excellent for all kinds of DVD burning.

For audio CDs I use a different program - Burrrn. I like it because of its simplicity as I don't need any hassle from a chore I do very rarely, like once a month.
