Preferred Solution: Dvd's burning properly but while playing freezes

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Dvd's burning properly but while playing freezes

Break out the Fiddle.......

Just because Nero will burn a CD, doesn't necessarily indicate that the drive is in good health. I have no experience with "Power Producer", so I don't know what the need for it would be. On older machines, (3 years or so), Nero 6 (full retail version only) has DVD-Video burning capability. I have found (personal experience only here) that burning DVD-Video onto DVD+R blanks usually generates the highest number of DVDs compatible with most stand-alone players. Granted, Nero 6 is the worst movie EDITING program I have ever seen, so if you're trying to edit footage, we can look for another solution. Lock-ups are sometimes caused by read and write lasers being out of alignment with each other, so could be the drive also. You must consider the possibility that simply because the drive finishes the task, doesn't necessarily indicate that it's done correctly. I don't think reformatting the HDD should be your first thought about how to solve this problem.

My burning program is capable of burning at 8x and is only burning at .64x aswell when I try playing dvd's on the drive it is distorted, like it is skipping but shoudn't be. The burning software is sonic, when I try to burn dvd's sonic says that the dma is unplugged and have followed the neccessary steps to turn that on but it still says that it is unplugged. how do i fix this. Please

A:Playing dvd and burning not working properly

Is this a newly-installed drive or one that was working properly up till now?
Assuming that it's a parallel, not a serial drive, have you checked that the cables going into the back of it are fully inserted and secure?
Are the slave/master/cable select jumper settings on the back of the drive set correctly?
Again, if it's a parallel drive are you using a 40-core or an 80-core IDE cable? It needs 80-core.
If you're not used to opening the PC up, make sure it's switched off and observe the necessary precautions so as not to kill it with an electrostatic jolt.

I'm trying to burn a regular "music CD" with Nero 6...the CD burns successfully, but when I view the content on the CD my music isn't there...only files that say "1kb - NeroMedia Player media files".

To my understanding if you Burn MP3's into a "Music CD" they'll be converted to WAV format...burned to your CD...and then you should be able to play the CD in any CD Player....what I'm trying to create is a "Music CD" that I can play in my CD Player at home.

P.S - I am NOT trying to create an MP3 cd

Hi i'm new here.
I need some help.
My DVD burning rom doesnt read DVD+RW and DVD-R but it reads CD-RW.
The Thing that happend is that it asks me how to open, i chose to open the map and when i check the size its 0bytes out of 0 bytes
and with the regular CD-RW it's as usual.... it's really strange, and when i check the rom in My Computer it says DVD-RAM.
And i'm using Windows XP and the rom is called (what i read from the rom) DVD Multi Recorder, Super Multi

Hi, i'm trying to fix a problem on my father in law's computer.
The problem is that it wont play any kind of video properly...

Heres basicly what happens:
Click on video file (any video file)
Windows media player opens the file, and starts playing.
You can hear sound, but the actuall video itself does not show...
Screen just shows up purple...

I have tried uninstalling the current codec's and re-installing a full new codec pack, but it still has not fixed the problem.
I have tried using different players, eg: media player classic(included in codec pack), but the problem still remains the same...

Any idea what the problem could be?

I've been trying to burn movies ( avi, divx) to cdr, preferably in Vcd, so that i can play then in a stand alone dvd player.
I've been using Nero v.; and the movies play fine on the pc, but not the Dvd player ( which is vcd compatible).

I have a 4X burner , and the video encoding/burning can take up to 4hrs for a 70 minute movie excerpt. Is that normal?
Is there any way I can get a full movie ( average time 120min) on 1 cd/vcd.
I've been playing movies on pc using win media player, sometimes Alpha divx player. Some movies allow the option of changing video setting, while other don't. anything i can do?

A:Videos on YouTube Not Playing Properly

Do you use Adblock on FF? Try disabling that to test and see if that fixes it. Try running FF in it's Safe Mode and see if it works there:

If so, try disabling extensions one at a time to discover the culprit.

Wow. OK, so let me try to get this straight. You have a dual boot computer that loads either Vista or Windows 7. And then somehow, some days not all that long ago, you suddenly started having this problem and it exists on BOTH operating systems running media players. Is this correct?

Did you load any new software before this started happening? Perhaps installed some new codecs or other software that is related to media playback? Because if you didn't, this is most peculiar. You have two entirely separate operating systems suffering the same issue. The only other thing I can think of is that you managed to get a virus on your computer that is affecting both operating systems. Are they on one partition or separate partitions?

I tried to get some screen shots but it seems to come out fine in them so It wont really show anything but basically its just really gammary and there's like big blocks of horrible colour like green on there armour and stuff.

Hello, this is my first post here so pardon me. i have a problem when burning files to a dvd using the live file system. When burning the files over halfway through the application freezes; it wont continue, eject, or cancel. when it finally ejects and i insert the dvd again the files are all there but i cant move, add, or delete them. when i try to do these things the following errors come up: "there is not enough space on DVD...#MB is needed to recycle." it also gives me the option to just delete or cancel but when i press delete the same error comes up. I dont know what is causing this to happen, any ideas would be much appreciated.

A:When burning file to dvd, the application freezes

The Live File System is a packet writing method of creating discs and is unreliable, I wouldn't use that method. Do you have some other burning software like Nero or Roxio on your PC? If so use that.

What kind of files are you trying to burn to disc? Are you making a video disc or something else?

Hercules Gamesurround Muse XL soundcard, windows 98 1st edition, PIII 800mhz, 512mb ram.

-The sound doesn't work properly, for example, played some games like hitman and mafia, and you cannot hear the gunshots or voices properly. Tried updating the drivers, and even got a new version of Gamesurround soundcard. But still didn't work.

Could it be direct X? Installed latest direct x too, still problems

A:soundcard doesn't work properly, while playing video games on pc

I have a Muse XL and had problems with Hercules driver for the card, I switched to the generic chipset drivers for the 8738 chip on the muse XL and found that the work better than the makers. You can find them here.

Also, check out the mixer in the generic drivers, you'll find a microphone booster and a few things that didn't come with the Muse's drivers from hercules for some reason...

I don't see any malware in your log. If this system is brand new, before you go tweaking it too much, you should consider going back to the source. Freezing and shutdown/boot issues should not be occurring on a new system.

First off thanks to any replies I get!

I've been have a reoccurring issue when I play specifically CS:GO. Most play sessions my computer will completely freeze, keyboard light goes off, mouse light goes off, but my power light will still be on. This happens almost every time I play and I end up having to shutdown and restart my PC. I've looked for fixes everywhere but found nothing to be of help. I've updated my drivers, made sure my CPU isn't overheating, and opened my PC to checked for problems. I've looked in the Reliability Monitor finding that when my PC crashes it reports nothing but that Windows was not shutdown properly.

I'll take any help I can get and all my specs should all be on my profile. Feel free to ask questions!

A:Computer freezes while playing WoW

welcome to techspot MrPoo (hehe),

it would be wise to replace that generic power supply regardless of whether or not it is the source of your problem. not only will it fail to provide it's 'rated' power output, but if it's on it's way out then it may take some other components out with it.

besides your PSU as a possible culprit, check your temps as well to make sure nothing is overheating.

Whenever I played the WMVs using WMP on the laptop DVD drive, it freezes all applications. I had to eject the DVD from the laptop to continue working. It appears to be using up some kind of resource.

This DVD works OK, when I play it using the external DVD drive.

Hi guys,

I have a Compaq Presario 1200xl with Win XP. When an .mpg file is played, Windows Media Player opens, then the entire screen goes black, and you can hear the sound. At this point I can't return to Windows (stop video clip). If I let the clip play out, I still can't get back to Windows. I have gone into MSConfig, and removed any unecessary background processes.

Any ideas/suggestions?



A:Laptop freezes playing .mpg's

to add to my initial post, WMP was ver8. I donloaded the latest codecs, and had the same issues. I have since installed ver9, which has not changed the situation. Once the screen goes black, ctr-alt-del will not get me out. I have to physically power down.

Hope this helps some.

When I try to play a DVD in any player on my computer the program stops responding. As soon as I take out the disk the program starts responding. Some times the disk does start playing and shortly after the video starts freezing and program stops responding. Anyone got any ideas. I have reloaded drivers and players and no help there.

A:Player freezes when playing DVDs

1. Make sure the DVDs are scrupulously clean - a single fingermark can cause malfunction.

2. Defragment your hard drive regularly if you often install/uninstall apps or delete files.

3. Run the error-checker on the C: drive (right-click > properties > tools > "check now"

4. Lastly, the laser-lens in the DVD drive may need cleaning. For this you'll need to buy a purpose-made cleaning disc for DVD drives.
make sure it's for computer DVD drives, as some of those made for standalone DVD Players are not suitable for computer DVD drives.

Whenever I play games, like Warcraft III or Half life, my computer will freeze. In Warcraft it freezes when starting the game and in Half life and other games when I leave a server. This has been happening only since I reinstalled my graphics card and installed new drivers. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and going back to old drivers and that doesn't work. I have already turned down the AGP speed to 4X speed from 8X speed because my Mother Board can't handle the 8X speed. I've also tried installing newer motherboard drivers. My computer specs are a Soyo K7VME Motherboard with a AMD XP 2600+ processor, 256 MB of DDR 333 Mhz ram, and a ATI Radeon 9500 Pro graphics card.

So sometimes i get these 1 second lags in csgo just randomly and if u play csgo, then you do understand that this is a annoying problem, like if u are spraying at someone then the lag just appears.
I just cleaned my pc from dust so its not that.
Should i check my temps while im playing?
Is there something wrong with my gpu or cpu?

I appreciate all answers!

A:Weird freezes playing CSGO

Hello Tkosj,

Have you tried doing a clean boot and running CS:GO? there could be something running in the background running that is interfering with your gaming? also do you have the latest GPU drivers for your nvidia graphics card? doing a scan with Malwarebytes and checking your temps wouldn't hurt .

I usually take pride in googling and figuring out my own problems, but it seems like I ran out of theories of why my PC freezes when playing graphic intensive games. In the event logs I spotted a bug check that could assist me in figuring out why the PC crashes. Unfortunately, I do not have any experience in debugging windows dump files. I would greatly appreciate anyone who can assist me.

A:PC Lockup and Freezes when playing BF3/other games

Got it again today. I tried using the tool Whocrashed and it gave the following results:
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: unknown_module_00000000`00000000.sys (Unloaded_Unknown_Module_00000000`00000000+0x0)
Bugcheck code: 0x124 (0x0, 0xFFFFFA8006AB8028, 0xFE000000, 0x800400)

Does unknown_module mean I do not have drivers installed for a specific computer component?

A:Computer freezes when playing a game

Sounds like a video card problem. Since it was running fine bfore my guess is either you have some dust accumulated in your card or the fan (if it has one) is not working so the processor is over heating and locking up. Take off your cover and look for dust...blow it out as best you can with canned air or a compressor then if you have a fan turn your machine on with the cover still off and watch the fan to see if it starts. If it doesn't start with your desktop screen go ahead and start a game...go to spectator mode and watch the fan. If it still doesnt start you may need a new card or fashion an aftermarket fan to cool the processor. Goodluck

Ok, I got a new computer recently ad it crashes when I play games.It is an AMD Sempron 3000+ with 512 MB of RAM and a Radeon 9600 videocard. The game I am mostly playing is Warcraft 3, fully patched an I know that my computer can run it, as my old computer with a 400MHZ proccessor could with only chopping, never crashing. When it crashes the game just freezes on the screen. I have scanned with all of my antivirus and antispyware programs, and removed all spyware and viruses found. The computer only sewms to freeze during gameplay, and spikes during it too. This happens on LAN games, online games and single-player ones. SO, do you have any clue on how I can fix this. The computer also has a few rare spikes when not playing games, but it never freezes. So does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Any hlp would be appreciated, thanks.

A:Computer freezes when playing games

get a newer version of catalyst drivers ( i use the 4.12's, other version of catalyst drivers caused freezing problems with simple games)

or you could try the 5's cause they are out

Since you said that your computer also experiences similar problems when you arent playing a game, see if your computer is overheating.

My computer randomly freezes while playing games from SC2 to C&C and i don't know why its suddenly happening, it used to work just fine. When it freezes the screen just freezes the frame at the moment and the sound just buzzes. How is this happening!

A:Computer freezes while playing games!

When this happens, is it like the whole system (including OS) is stuck or just the game?

Please go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and open Event Viewer, go through system/applications logs, and see whether you can find something which can help us get to the root of this issue. Especially look for the events marked with yellow/red icons.

Also, do you remember when exactly did this started to happen e.g. an driver update?

A:Computer freezes when playing a game

please go into your BIOS and post your voltages and temps.

Whilst you have a high wattage power supply it is a very low quality power supply so this could be a suspect.

There is no need for more than 4GB RAM unless you do high end video editing or use photoshop or virtual machines plus if your ddr3 is suppossed to all be matched then it may be that it is all supposed to be installed to work correctly.

I have a game called Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of time on a 750 Mhz AMD-Thunderbird computer with DirectX 8.0a installed. However, usually within 60 seconds of playing the game, the computer freezes. It did that before I installed DirectX 8.0a (yesterday) and after. Does anybody have any ideas?? I just played Riven for countless hours without having any problems.

The video card is a Guillemot Xentor 32 Mb TNT 2AG. I have never been able to play for more than about a minute. Even the demo included in the Riven package did that.
