    I use my computer to make multiple copies of our short films and have to do 10 or 20 dvd copies a week of full dvd's. I use 2 dvd burners a Sony DRU 500a, and a generic DVD+-RW from CompUsa. The 2 at a time method works great, but about 40% of the time i get the same message:

    Something is wrong with the recording procedure.

    And then the Sony will have an error about 80% of the way finished. Always about same mark. I will include all of the information from the log. When it works it works great, but the other half the time i get one perfect disc and one coaster.

    Please help.

    Just recording one dvd puts a lot of strain on your computer let alone trying to burn 2 at once. i think that feature in the program was more directed towards cd-r burning.

    Your only running a P2 434mhz im pretty sure these are your problems. Try just doing one at a time or trying the same process on a friends computer that is more advanced. Also 128 megs of ram is very low you should have a min of 256 for doing large processes such as this
