I have had a persistent problem with Nero ever since I bought my dvd burner. Basically every time I try to burn a video file in a dvd format the computer freezes at the end of the transcoding process. Not even a ctrl-alt-delete can release the computer, I have to hold in the power button to get the computer working again. I have Nero 18.104.22.168, with vision express 3 (including the patch), Express 6, Burning Rom 6 etc. My computer is an AMD Athlon 2000+ 1.6ghz, 512mb RAM, Windows XP Professional edition.The burner is a Philips DVDR1660P1. The file that I was trying to burn was a 33mb windows media file, though this problem has occurred with mpegs and avis of all sizes. I have never been able to do a sucessful burn in the dvd format. I have however, managed to burn numerous files to dvd in the data format so the burner definitely works. I just don't understand why it won't let me burn anything in the dvd format. I've also tried vcd, out of desperation, just to see if that has the same problem, and yep, it does. So no success there either. Obviously because the computer always freezes I've not got to the point where I have an error log. For a long time I thought it was the operating system that was messed up but I've recently had to reformat the C drive and install Windows XP Pro (previously I had home edition) but the problem remains. I have also updated all my device drivers. Any help would be really very much appreciated so if anyone could help shed some light on this problem I'd be really grateful. If there's any other details that are needed please say and I'll do my best to provide them. Thanks in advance.
