DVD burning freezing during burning

Q: DVD burning freezing during burning

I am running Windows XP Professional.
I have just started getting problems burning DVD's. I have the same problem with Clone DVD2 and also DVD Shrink 3.2.
While copying it can freeze anywhere between 9% and 50%.
I have actually burnt two or three discs but then the fault returns.
Up until now it has been fine.
Any ideas?
Thank you in advance.

Nero Burning ROM crashed during burning and now my DVD drive is unusable. I cannot open the drive, I cannot shut down the computer because it says "Waiting for DVD Drive D:" and the drive runs like it is still burning despite the program doing the burning is no longer open. It isn't even in any process. What can I do to make the drive stop?

A:Nero Burning ROM crashing caused perpetual burning from DVD Drive

Go to Task Manager...shut the system down from there.
Turn system off....hard shutdown if necessary...disconnect the optical drive.
Sounds to me like it's a hardware problem moreso than a software problem if you cannot manually open the drive.

I am a "Nero Veteran", war veteran, etc.. etc.. The reason your having problems is simple. Some discs cannot be copied, as they may be copy protected or contain errors. If you are unsure if your disc can be copied,
run a trial in the "simulation" mode. Click on "More" at the bottom of the page and select "Simulation".

Hey all, I'm fairly new to this computer world... and like all newbies I'm stuck and can't fix my problem. I have Win XP with the up-to date media player. When I try to burn a Cd from my play list it does its inspection, then converts... but right as it starts to copy my driver opens up and with in 2 min. the whole computer freezes. I try to shut down the application before it goes into freeze mode.... but it never works. I know that I am capable of burning Cd's because I have done some already. If anyone could help I would be greatly appreciative.

When I burn cd/dvds with Windows 7 built in burning software and windows media player all my burns are successful. When I try to use Nero, CD Burner XP or imgburn, it fails. My computer is plenty fast enough(2.8ghz, 4gb ddr2, 250gb sata hd) and I tried reinstalling windows 7 without nero or deamon tools and tested with CD Burner XP, it still failed. I am using Sony blank CD's and also tried a few other name brand. I am burning at the lowest speeds. I purchased a brand new dvd burner and the firmware is up to date. The error I am getting is "Could not write to Disc". It fails randomly anywhere from 3%-30%. Any ideas? Again, windows 7 native burning works fine but other software does not. Same pc, same blanks, same burner, same hardware just different software. Any Ideas at all?

Is anyone else having this problem?

A:Nero Burning ROM Freezing Issues

Hi, welcome. I'm assuming you have the latest version; I was getting some freezes prior to, but that's all taken care of. You might try getting Nero HelpTool off their download page, it has a number of things to walk through if you're getting freezes.

Also, if you want to post back here, please explain when the freeze happens in the burn process, and what you're trying to burn, and what kind of disc you're trying to make (does it freeze on all kinds?)

I have been burning my dvds with convert x to dvd with no problems up until this . Every time I go to burn a DVD it will convert but when it burns it is taking so long (I usually burn at 6x) I did a speed test and it said it was burning at .05%. It would probably take 5 hours to burn a normal movie,Anyone know why this may be happening? Thanks in advance

If you are converting to a format readable by a dvd player they burner will burn very slowly depending on the source file. Now does you cpu max out when burning?

Have been burning CDs through Windows Media Player forever; no problems. Suddenly, when I choose 'Burn CD', nothing happens. No error messages.

BUT, when I choose a previous playlist to burn, it works. The non-burn problem seems limited to only recently downloaded music playlists. These same playlists do play on my computer, so they're obviously recorded and working.

Ok, i'm new to this CD Burning. I have Nero Express, and i'm having a little problem with it.

I've copied an Audio CD to a CD-R, and it plays fine, but there are still space on it, and i wanted to put a MP3 (it converts to CDA really nice also) together with the already burned tracks, but i can't. Everytime i put the same CD, i get the folloqing message:

"This midia cannot be recorded
Please Insert another midia."

(Sorry if it's not right, cuz i translated from portuguese)

Can i do what i want?? How??

Sorry if it is hard to understand, it is hard to explain.

Thank you

A:Audio CD Burning with Nero Burning Rom

You cannot append any audio files to an disc that has been completed. Once a disc is completed it cannot access the remaining space. Especially with Nero Express. Once a disc is burned it is "closed (finalized)."

This is just a simple explanation.

I believe Roxio's Easy cd creator lets you add files to your disc as long as you don't "finalize" it. Until you finalize it you will not be able to listen to the music.

Hi to all,
Here's a strange one, I've just re-formatted my hard drive and re-installed xp ( not the first time, I prefer this to restore ) anyway I've tried to burn three music disc's using new blank cd-r's. I go through all the motions ( using nero 5.5 ) I do my compilation as normal, hit burn and nero " burns " the disc. When I try and play the disk on my walkman I can skip through the track numbers but get no sound. When I check it out on my pc in my computer it says Free space 0 bytes, Total size 0 bytes. I am sure this is not a hardware problem so what else could it be ?

I've been recording sucessfully with the same set up and software in the past, any suggestions welcome and appreciated.

I have a question. There was a program you could download online that would allow you to burn dvds (like the kind that you rent, not buy in a store) but Im not exactly sure if its available anymore. The kind of dvds that you rent are at a higher gb , like around 9 something, but the ones you buy are usually around 4 or 4.5 gbs. The program would compress or squeeze the file down so you could burn it to a cd. Does anyone know what I am talking about? Any help?

As far as I know rental movie DVDs are the same as the ones you can buy in a store. They can be up to about 9 GB in size.

They also usually ave encrypted copy protection. Discussing methods or programs for breaking encryption and copy protection is against TSG rules.

A:Burning on DVD+R

Doing multisession burning can be a problem, especially when you try to read the disc on a regular DVD player. Copy all of the files from the CD's to your hard drive, then do one non-multisesson burn to a DVD.

If you want to try and use all the space, wait until you have about 4.3GB of files before you burn a DVD.

I just got a Radeon X1800XL and it is running at a mind bogling average temp of 87 C. Catalyst says it's running at about Mid-Level High and I've checked the card and the fan is running. Sometimes Catalyst gliches and says it's about 30 C. Any ideas of what to do /or what's happening? The card doesn't glich or anything but I'd rather not burn it out.

A:Burning Up

87C doesn't sound good even for a high performance card.
If I were you I'd first try to update to the newest catalyst drivers as it could just be buggy drivers displaying wrong temps, but it could allso be that the sensor on the card isn't very precise or has a very high bias.

Another reason for a high temp could be that you don't have enough airflow inside your case, try removing the side panel from the case and see if that helps.
If it does then you do have an airflow problem and should consider installing exstra fans inside your case.

I have a dmg file on a pc that I want to burn to a cd and run on a Mac. Do I just need to burn it to a cd or do I need to make it an iso of some sort?

A:Burning DMG

Treated like a real disk. Can be created with Disk Copy, burnt to CD or mounted as a normal volume. The dmg2iso program will convert a .DMG file to an .ISO file which can then be burned to a CD or read using an .ISO file reader. Note: You have to run the dmg2iso program at a command prompt using the same command as listed on the site for the Perl version, substituting .EXE for .PL in the command.

A:dvd burning help

On what are you playing it? Maybe your DVD player is not the best for either DVD+/-R.

IIRC, some DVD players have some problems with "packed bitstreams" (?). You either need to wait until someone makes a firmware that supports them correctly, make the DVD in an other mode, or use an other DVD-Player.

Maybe it's an other problem that a 3rd party firmware could fix if it's not on your computer that you're playing it.

I recently reformatted my hard drive, windows 98SE ,IE6,512 MbRAM and am having problems burning CDs with adaptec CD creator 5.On the last occasion (photos) it completed the whole thing but then it couldn't read the CD, the message was something about the headers.Does anyone understand what is going on here? I have already ruined several blank CDs. I also tried copying an audio CD it got as far as processing all 4 tracks and then wouldn't copy.
All advuce gratefully received.

A:CD burning

Have you tried un-installing CD Creator, and re-installing?
Reformatting your HD erased everything? If so, it erased your CD-RW's drivers too.
Try un-installing your drive, through the Hardware Manager, then rebooting, and let the computer detect the drive, and re-install drivers for it. But first................ Win 98 SE will do this, right? I know XP will, but not positive about 98 SE. Better make sure first!
Maybe some others will have some ideas............

A:I am actually new to CD burning here.

PS2 won't play a CD with movies... The "jerking" is most likely your DVD player..
Or, it could be your burning the files to fast.. I would say 24X is is just fine..

I went through 5 DVD players until I found just the right one..
Some can play VCD or SVCD, few can play both well..
Right now PS2 can only play DVD, and even that is most likely going to be DVD-R.

Just google audio splitter and many results come up..
I used one called "cool MP3 splitter".. don't know if it's still around.

It doesn't matter wether I am burning a music cd with Media Player or burning a data cd with Nero. Now, I've tried updating the driver but that didn't fix the problem, and all the wires are plugged into the drive correctly. Does anyone know what the problem coud be? Maybe it's just old and I need a new one, but I don't want to believe that yet . Any help is appreciated.

It only happens on the first of three files, the other two go perfect. Does anyone know if this is a problem with perhaps my burner not being able to burn the movie, or is it some kind of protection on the dvd.

Have two CD-R-Writer drives. One came with Roxio and the other with Nero burning programs.

Both these will Auto-boot Program CDs like MS Win, fs9 etc, or magazine freebies.

Also Downloaded the winXP-Proffessional Burning program "CD Burner Pro XP", as I was advised to use it to burn an ISO file on a CD-R bootable CD.

The Nero type CD drive would not accept to burn the file, as it only accepts CD-Re-Writer CDs.

So I burned the file using the Roxio type drive, using "CD Burner Pro XP".

This CD now will only Auto-Boot in the Roxio type drive, and will not Auto-boot on another PC with standard CD drive.

It is getting rather confusing and would like some clarification to establish a correct method on burning CDs.

A:DVD burning

Well for number one I'm wondering what size those 13 files were in aggregate, what did the DVD maker produce and what size was that production (because sometimes the original files are included on the disc) so if the size of whatever was burned to the DVD was 4.08 gigs or larger, that's a full single sided DVD and the reason it only used 13.
Number 2, I'm assuming DVD maker made slideshow video(s)? IF so that's pretty standard operating procedure. A lot of DVD players (you'd have to check the specs to be sure) will play back data discs with folder structured jpeg format photos so that's one possibility.
Otherwise you need to do some pre-processing of your photos to allow for selecting a set for playback much like selecting a chapter in a movie--you'll need to author a DVD in the same way where each chapter would be one set of your photos you want to playback. Specific sofware programs like Premiere Elements and Studio allow for arrangement, chaptering and authoring all in one continuous multi-stepping process but you can also put together video clip slideshows of your photos in groups and save them as DV-AVI files from Windows Movie Maker. Then with a program like DVDFlick you can arrange those video clips as desired and set the program to create a new chapter or "next" point with each video. The makers of DVDFlick are working on a version that will also alow you to write a menu on the disc as well but for now that program is limited by that aspect. Of course the two pay-for programs above allow for easy menu selectable chaptering which is probably more along the lines of what you're looking for.

A:CD burning

Hi inanothersky,

If you want to play MP3's in a standard CD player, you'll have to convert them to .WAV files first.

Regular CD players can't recognize or play the MP3 format.

Use Easy CD Creator to convert the MP3's files to .WAV format first, then burn the .WAV files to the CD-R. Depending on how old your CD player is, you may or may not be able to play the CD-R in it.

Is there something different that should be done in burning a CD of photos for a Mac on a PC?


A:Burning FOR Mac

i know that certain quicktime compressed images will not work on a pc. Typically if you are going pc to mac you shouldnt run into too many problems. Tiff files are fairly universal and should work well in both os's. .bmp's should work well but of course its a lossy file format so depending on your level of needed resolution you might want to try gif or possibly even png. I know adobe cs 2 has the ability to save files in .pict format , or you could even go with a pdf format to be on the safe side. Usually when i go from mac to pc is when i run into problems seeing as macs tend to need extra information to open certian files. Also make sure your cd is ISO level one compliant.

Where does that go when it disappears before you can get back from the other room where you went to get a blank CD because you're so stupidly disorganized you can't stand yourself?

I have Windows XP and I have a movie that is in .WMV format. How can I burn it onto a DVD using Nero Burning ROM 8? I think it can only use ISO files?

A:DVD burning.

You need the Nero suite, specifically Nero Vision I think, to make a DVD out of a wmv file.

DVDFlick ( is free and can do the job.

I just got a new Sony DVD burner to burn the video files off of my computer. The videos are a .avi, and I was told to burn a dvd, i should convert it to a .VOB, which I did but the files I burned wern't veiwable on a DVD player. I put the video files into the video_ts folder.

How do I burn .vob files? Should I convert my video into another format?

Ihave the Nero software for burning a DVD, but I was just wondering, without even using that, I have just copied and pasted jpg pictures to my DVD drive (where I've inserted a DVD -RW disc) and the files show up there without burning. Do I still need to burn?

A:New To Dvd Burning :( Help Please!!!

I recommend usind DVD Shrink. It's free and works great. I use it to back up my DVD's. Get it at You can easily reauthor your copy to include all or part of a dvd to copy.
I would also recommend Nero to burn the movie. You can download a trial version of it and see how it works before you buy it, Nero interfaces very well with DVD shrink. In fact DVD Shrink has a setting which allows you to burn automatically after copying the DVD using Nero. Great programs that produce great results IMHO.

Hi, I have Windows 98 second edition with a CD-R. I need some step by step instruction on how to burn pictures on to a CD. I have already uploaded them from my digital camera into the camera software, they are also showing up in My Documents. Thanks, Dan

A:Burning a CD

welcome whomper

did the cd burner come with software such as Nero and did you install it?

If so just open the software and follow the instruction...Should be as simple as draging the files into the burn window

ps... I'm going to delete one of your post as they are duplicates

A:Burning DVD DL cd's

Verbatim is the ONLY brand of DL media that CDFreaks recommends; the rest just aren't reliable. Use ImgBurn for writing as this deals with the layer break properly.

What applications are you using to convert your DV source to DVD Video format?
Before burning, do the DVD Video files on the PC play smoothly (use VLC player)?

I am trying to burn a XP OS so I can install on my sons computer I put together for him. I cannon't get the CD to boot when I fire up the machine.

I burned as an ISO image. Is there something I am not doing, or any reason the disc is not booting.

If anyone can think of something I might be missing or if you can be any help at all. Please reply.

Thank you in advance.

I went to burn a CD last night and at the top of my playlist it now says "connect a burner and restart the player". I haven't made any changes in my computer software or updates or anything. How do I make it so I can burn CDs again?

A:CD burning.

What software are you using to burn the CDs? It sounds like media player or something similar which is notoriously unreliable at CD-writing. Try ImgBurn; it's free and highly recommended.
