Hi all, I'm having real problems tring to burn DVD's. I just bought my first DVD burner NEC Dual Layer, and 50 Ritek disc'c. My PC is a an XP2200, 256meg, 80Gig HD. I’m using DVD Shrink, Roxio Easy DVD Creator 6 and Nero. I started by using shrink and Roxio to back up a DVD.... got a coaster. Tried creating DVD slideshows of my pictures (VOB’s) with Roxio.... got a coaster. Tried burning a friends movie from an existing burn disc (via HD) using nero .....and get a coaster. By coaster I mean it does not error during the burn, the files are there, and I can normally (but not always) play them using powerdvd. The will not play with windvd, or one of 3 domestic DVD players I’ve tried. The domesic players all normally play burnt DVD’s (ie ones friends have lent me). I’ve tried changing the media, I’ve tried different DVD players, I’ve even tried a different DVD burner (freecom USB2 external) and I still get coasters. By using different combinations of the software I’ve pretty much eliminated software problems as well. I’ve managed to burn 1 movie, and one side show of pictures, and backed up all my photos (2gig). That pretty bad out of about 25 discs! The only two things that have always been in the loop while burning have been me, and the computer. The only thing I can think of with the computer is the memory, is 256meg enough. Bear in mind that I seem to be able to burn data from the HD fine (pictures). Its playback of burnt VOB’s that seem to be the problem. Any ideas?
