Please help! I am a total noob to the DVD-R scene, and am experiencing some issues. I am running an AMD Athlon XP 1800+ rig with 512 mb ram. Burner is a Digital Research and the media is Memorex DVD+R 4xRW/DVD+R. I have tried using several different programs such as dvd x copy and Clone DVD, and DVD Shrink. Everything goes well until I try to write the backup movie to the DVD-R. With both clonedvd and DVD shrink, the write process froze at 21-22%. I am running the burner on a secondary IDE on the mobo as a slave to my cdrom which is set to master. (for cd-writing) Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am starting to think the dvd player is the culprit for the 4 coasters so far!
