Okay, this is my first DVD burner...it's a NEC DVD±RW ND-3520A. I replaced my Yamaha CD burner with it so I still have my stock DVD-ROM. I've successfully (but maybe not...don't know what the prob is) copied a DVD movie to my hard drive. Burning is the problem...It stops at the beginning. I get some sort of error saying it failed just as it starts...it burns just enough to ruin the disc. I've tried DVD decrypter, DVD Shrink, and 1Click DVD Copy, and tried burning using Nero. I have only had DVD43Free (or whatever it's called) running in the background for copyright override. I've used (and verified with DVD Identifier) ProDisc and Taiyo Yuden media. What am I doing wrong? Do I need a firmware update or what?
