    You should uninstall roxio if you have nero already. This program is notorious for causing conflicts with other programs. You may want to defrag your hard drive regularly depending on the amount of backing up you do.

    You didn't mention what program you use to rip or the format and brand of media you are using.

    Brand of media is the big question?

    Shit can the memorex and nero is in my opinion better than roxio.

    What program do you use to rip your dvds?

    Good advice wolfniggr.

    ed522, use this free proggy to check the media code of your media and let us know what it is, probably CMC Mag. http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/

    ed522 I have a BTC branded I/o magic burner and I have found out that it is very picky about the media I use,after lots of trial and error RitekG04 at 4x and Taiyo Yuden TYG01 at 4x wwork perfectly for me. I also updated my firmware to rev.0059
