    Dworz , I've used Showbiz quite a bit. Had successes and failures , mainly re: sound sync problem when burning an .mpg movie.
    Little to go on , but your problem is PC hangs when trying to burn a DVD?
    1)Suggest doing any video projects after fresh reboot.
    2)If you havent defragged lately , do that.
    3)In my novice experience, I've found it best to create a final movie file "MAKE MOVIE"....mpg2(DVD compliant), which you could then view in Windows Media Player for approval. THEN, open that movie with ShowBiz (right-click/open with/ find ArcSoft Showbiz.exe) Now do the burn-"CREATE" - Basic DVD. This step 3 is as opposed to trying to burn the DVD from an ".sbz" project, expecting the program to make finished project AND burn simultaneously. (when you choose "CREATE" you will be asked if you want to save the project, but you should already have saved it in order to make the final .mpeg2 file, so just say NO.)
    TIP: Use a RW disc if you have one while getting hang of this, so you dont waste discs. (of course check for DVD-/or +)
