Hello all, first time poster here, with a really big headache. Long story short, I got a new computer 6 weeks ago with my first DVD burner. I have done a lot of research and read all the FAQ's and guides on this site. All very helpful, but none that really addresses my problem here. I know and understand the decrypter program, and the Shrink program when needed. I have downloaded trials from CloneDVD, Nero, Apollo, Cheetah, and 1Click DVD copy. I have tried 2 different types of media. I had the best luck with CloneDVD. I have had maybe 2 sucessfully burns, and about 25 burns that would start, and then stop about 34% into the burn. These are with Verbatim DVD+R light scribe disks. I also tried some cheap Dynex disc's, the same thing happens but at 12% into the burn. The program then will lock up and lock up the computer when I try to close it. I have burned music and data to both disc's and not had any problems at all, just DVD's. I was thinking about trying another brand of media, but these disc's are starting to add up fast and not having any luck. Should I call HP and try to get some tech support? Any help you guys can give will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
