Hi guys... Went out and bought a DVD burner yesterday (guess which one!), and have had nothing but troubles with it! I have followed the guides listed both here and on doom9.org... But my problem actually lies with the failure of every burn attempts, rendering each DVD-R unusable! My first attempt was to place a heap of my mp3's onto a DVD-R, using Nero 18.104.22.168. Attempt #1 resulted in failure to burn at 2x speed at 9% completion (using Pioneer DVD-R media). I tried again at 1x speed... succeeding in getting to 81% before failure. I then tried to burn a DVD-5 using DVDDecryptor (latest version). Read fine, and burned fine until 93% where it just stalled, and after 30 minutes had not advanced from that point. This was all using Pioneer media, as a Verbatim DVD-R that I had would not recognise. My system basics are as follows: PIII - 866 512 Ram 45Gb and 35Gb hard drives. (plenty of room left on C Any ideas on what could be my problem? Cheers in advance for any help! - H.
