I was doing fine using only nero to capture, author and burn DVDs from home movies. I have made 100s of DVDs with out problems. Suddely, either Nero hangs or gets errors when almost done burning. All I have changed is the version of Nero by installing the latest. I have two machines each with it's own Nero serial number. One has a plextor 708A and the other has a newer 712. Both running Xp Sp2, 3.0GHZ with 1Gb memory on both machines. Files are DV type1 that have worked before and usually take around 2 hours to complete. Now Nero runs for several hours and then pops out the DVD and just sits there running up elpased time. Media is Taiyo Yuden (and others) but I have had success with all types of media and media was never any issue before this. So is anyone else having this problem? Does Nero 184.108.40.206 work for you? Thanks for your help.
