hi. i have a couple of avis that i have burned. the burn was technically sucessfully, at least that's what's mentioned. but when i try to play it from the d drive, i can hear the cd loading, up i can hear it spinning and churning, but nothing happens. eventually my computer crashes. the weird thing is, the avi's don't play from the D drive, but i can copy that avi from the d drive onto the harddrive and play from the C, and it works. what's going on? i have had the problem with different avi's. so i don't think it's the avi. i can play avi's from other disks just fine. it's just the ones that i burn now that have the problem. i have burned other avi's (by chance) successfully, i don't think it's a hardware problem. well, i suppose the cdr's that i have are defective, but i just a bought a spindle them. how is that i have so many of them defective so far? yes, i use easy cd creator, but this is because i prefer over Nero. (the playback of avi's i burn with a Nero stutters mid point to the end point of the movie which is extremely annoying) (i've also tried using Nero and i get failed disc. i can't play avi's and also, i can't even copy them onto my harddrive.) anyone know what might be wrong here?
