    Burning dvd's uses most of your computer resources. You could possibly be having an overheat problem. If you can remove a side panel or case from the PC and aim a small fan at the processor, then try to burn again. If it works all the way you need more cooling inside. If that doesn't help we can try something else.

    Make sure you are not multi-tasking or surfing the web either. That may be too much for your computer to handle.

    Try disabling Alcohol, and see if your problem goes away.
