This started about a month ago. Before that, I had no problem burning things. I was using Nero 7, and have tried FinalBurner as well. It always freezes during transcoding now. Sometimes in the first few minutes, sometimes after 20, there is no pattern to it. When it froze in Nero 7, the entire screen froze sometimes; other times, only the preview and transcoding, but it still counted the total time; still other times, it restarted my pc with a "system has recovered from a serious error message"; and also, sometimes it would come up with a Nero had to close window. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Nero. I've run boot time Avast (and not gotten any issues) and also Spybot & Adaware. I've defragged all of my harddrives and run disc cleanups. I have also done a system restore, all to no avail. I do not do any other computer activities while transcoding is going on. My pc is: Windows XP, AMD Athalon 32oo+, 2.19GHz, 1 GB RAM. I saved the following from one of the "system has recovered from a fatal error" messages: Error codes: BCCode : 1000007e BCP1 : C0000005 BCP2 : 804EC957 BCP3 : F7A46C20 BCP4 : F7A4691C OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1 Files: C:\DOCUME~1\MICHEL~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER27b2.dir00\Mini100607-01.dmp C:\DOCUME~1\MICHEL~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER27b2.dir00\sysdata.xml Can anyone please help?
