My problem is very much like jestagrl's, so I hope you don't mind girl, but I've copied and pasted yours since it's so similar, I've just changed the information to match my hardware and products. This is my issue: I'm very confused. I've been burning for about 3 mos or so with a TSST CORP CD/DVDW TS-H552L (HEWLETT PACKARD a131)using HP DVD-R and have had no problems. I usually use any DVD, then DVD Shrink, then IMG BURN. But now, all of a sudden when I try to burn using Img Burn it just says writing lead in, and does nothing, it can sit for hours, but won't do a thing, disc just spins. The buffer's percentage level bar is moving but the completion rate bar is at zero. I just have to cancel it. I've tried movies that burnt okay before and the same thing. I've tried uninstalling both DVD Shrink and then a day later I uninstalled IMG Burn and reinstalled both, but to no avail. DVD's that I'm using for burning are from the same pack of a box of 50. Any ideas, I'm not too savvy at all this yet.
