    hi am a relitive neewbee here

    problem

    trying to create VCD using VCDEasy. All seems to be going well in the burning process untill usually about 15MB's into the process it comes up with the following error message in the log

    "CD write" execution failed
    writing failed - buffer under run
    Writing failed

    any suggestions ?!?!?
    am using a compaq laptop with p4 and XP. I have 40GB hard drive, 512 RAM and the burner is (i think) a toshiba HL DT ST RW/DVD GCC4240N (internal drive)

    I can play the vcd afterwards but alas it only has the first 15 or so Megs!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can someone help me?

    Can you manually set your burn speed? You have to burn your CDs at a slower speed (probably alot lower than what it's spec are, i.e. 52X drive, burn at 32X).
