Input/output error when burning DVDs

Q: Input/output error when burning DVDs

Hello everyone

I'm having a problem with my DVD burner... actually I've had it for almost two years now, but I only decided that enough is enough with this thing and I want to find a solution for it.

The long and short of it is this. Whenever I try to burn something on my DVD, it fails at the end and gives me an 'input/output' error and ejects the DVD. I have no idea why this happens. I should note that my DVD drive is fine otherwise, it can play DVDs and CDs without any problem. If anyone needs any additional information, I even saved the log-file that the my DVD burning software saved after it was finished.

Can anyone lend a hand? Thanks in advance.

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.)

What software are you using? Try CDBurnerXP, it's free.
Also, try a different manufacturers DVD's.
And you could look for a firmware update for the drive.

Hi guys. I am not sure if the problem with my DVD burner is a software related one or a hardware related one. I am using HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS70 SCSI CdROM device. Of late, most of the times when I am trying to burn a disc, it shows Program Memory Area Update Failure. The errors are random. At times I can burn 2-3 discs before the error pops up. At times it happens during burning the first disc. The type of files I am burning also has no effect as the error occurred as I attempted to write various types of disc. I sed ImgBurn and Nero but the problem persisted. What is the problem and what do I need to do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

I have a speech error, and I had an idea that I could connect the audio output to the input. That way, I could use a speech synthesizer with Skype. I could also play music for my friends. The easiest way to do this is of course a wire, but I was wondering if this could be done from windows.


A:input to output

Hello Thomas, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Not knowing which audio devices you have, I can not tell you which device you have to choose, but in my opinion this can be done from Skype Audio Settings.

An example from my laptop with IDT Audio chip. I can select one of these devices:

Selecting Stereo Mix in my case sends the signal from mic when it is connected but when mic is not connected, it sends whatever sound I'm currently playing, for instance WMP, WMC or speech synthesizer.

With an image it's diffult to show audio but I'll try: screenshot below shows (green signal strength bar) Skype is getting an audio signal to send. All mics currently disconnected, that signal comes from a YouTube video I'm watching, so if I now had a Skype chat with you, you would receive and hear what I'm listening now.

I was wondering how I would be able to do something like this. I have a 8800 GTS that have DVI-I outputs and I wanted to pick up a monitor that has a DVI-D input. I know the difference between the DVI-D and the DVI-I is that the DVI-I has 4 pins surrounding the flat blade (28 pins compared to 24 pins).

Is there anyway I can get them to connect with each other or is this totally incompatible? Special cable, etc?

A:DVI-I output to DVI-D input

The extra pins contain the analog signal, which is not used by the DVI-D monitor.

Just because the video card has the pins avaiable does not mean they have to be used, when the monitor only needs the digital signal.

Hi I currently have a Fenton 1000 UPS which i use to connect my pc & TFT monitor, i have installed the UPSILON 2000 monitoring program which is used to monitor the UPS.
Now my problem is that the monitoring program is reading that the input voltage is 250V & the output Voltage is also 250V, shouldn't it be adjusted to at least a voltage lower than 250V automatically by the UPS itself?

Thanks for any help.

I've taken myself the challenge I've been avoiding for some time, creating a plattform for connecting a radio to your computer through the USB port.

So basicly I need to know if there is anyone here with any knowledge in this field who wants to answer a few questions, or if there is anyone who knows where to direct those questions...

The most important question would be how the signal has to be converted to be put through the USB connection. Followed by how to create the drivers needed to get the computer to understand these signals as soundsignals.

I'd greatly appreacitate any help, as I'm guessing it's not anything usual I'm asking about

A:input and output for USB devices

My question would be, what are you trying to do? Are you trying to record the radio output into the computer?

USB connections are for Hardware. So you're saying that you want a radio to become a piece of hardware? Could you clarify?

Well, things went on until noon yesterday, but suddenly My PC takes no audio input or gives any output.
I have tried reinstalling driver, checking mute button, checking Cables etc, none of the audio devices work on my PC which work in other devices.
On opening realtek audio manager and playing auto test, Nothing plays, and going to control Panel -> Sound, and playing the test tone, I get this error:
Just as an additional info, I reinstalled AVG Internet Security 14 yesterday, and probably the audio was working till then. Once AVG was installed and the system got restarted, a system Update was triggered automatically, if that has got anything to do with my problem.

P.S. I could not use system restore as well, I get the following error:

Also, I come to know by googling that The Audio and System restore problems come in combos frequently.

A:No audio input and output

Do you have any audio listed in the device manager, other than RealTek, and possibly an HDMI audio (if your system has that capability)? If there are other audio entries, such as "HD Audio Codec" uninstall those as they can conflict with the actual sound device (RealTek).

An uninstall/reinstall if the sound device will fix any Windows corruptions, and MAY fix your audio problem. In the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the driver. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound.

AVG is on the list of Antivirus programs that potentially can interfere with Audio. I have a recording studio, using Sonar X3 recording software, and AVG is listed as one to avoid. For that reason (and that it works), I only use the built in (built in to Windows 8) Windows Defender (is called Microsoft Security Essentials in XP, Vista and Win 7).

I hard a hard time deciding where to put this thread, none the less here it goes:

I used to have a very advanced audigy system that had front ports for pro mics and stuff. when plugged in it turned my speakers into a PA system basically with studio quality. I was then able to play tracks of recorded songs by my band and add vocals to them with almost no software at all and it sounded brilliant.

That PC cost me 4,000 to build and I by no means can replicate that. I now have a spdif plug mic with a nice hd sound card, adobe audition 3, and the hope I may be able to make this work. Can anyone offer me any solutions whether they be 3rd party of plugins to my current software?

Much appreciation!

Also the sound from my speaker output is being used as the mic input. For example, if I am listening to music with the voice recorder program opened the music will be recorded.

Hello everybody,

I hope everybody is doing all right and much better than me.

I wanted to ask something about audio.
How can I make the sound coming from my speakers like they are coming from microphone?
I guess you could say that how can make output coming like input?
I want to add a video entry to a journal, I can add the video, but I want the sound from the video added to the entry too.
I couldn't find a way to do that because it only records the sounds from microphones.
Another question would be how can make a song on my computer recorded as an audio journal?
What are the ways to do that?


A:Showing Output Sound as Input

I don't mind saying I'm confused. Where is the video coming from and where/what is the journal method of recording? Seems to me you could use Windows Live Movie Maker. As far as an audio journal, the Sound Recorder under Accessories should to it. You'll need a microphone plugged in and make sure it's assigned as a recording device.

I have activated the stereomix function and tried to set it as the default recording device, but it is simply not delevering any output - or to be more precise: it looks like it's not getting any input, because in the Windows mixer there is no reaction in the stereomix strip like no sound is being routed to the stereomix.

Trying to record in applications like Wavelab, Audacity or mp3mymp3 with the stereomix as input gain only give the delicate sound of silence...

My computer doesn't seem to want to send any output, and from what I can tell, doesn't get input.
Recently my computer has been requiring me to spam the mouse and keyboard so it will send information to the screen. The mouse and keyboard do not power on now, preventing me from spamming and getting the screen to talk. Charging my phone though it does nothing, and wireless mouse/keyboards don't work either.
Currently I have only usb things plugged in.

I have also changed power cords just to test that.

Apologies if this had been solved before, had a look through the topics but couldn't find an answer.

My speaker output is going directly to my mic input and its getting very annoying and everyone complains in game that they can hear everything through my mic and when they speak they get really bad echoing.

I know its not a teamspeak issue as trawling around the net looking for an answer has shown that others using ventrillo have had the same problem. It doesn't seem to be confined to one sound card either. I'm using the realtek AC'97 driver for the onboard sound.

I've been through all the audio settings i can find but nothing works.

'Listen to this device' is not ticked in the mic's properties.
In playback properties mic input is turned down to zero

Please please please can someone help me as i can't find a solution to this anywhere!

A:Speaker output going directly to mic input

Ahhh. . . Teamspeak. It's been years since my friends and I maxed ourselves out on Soldier of Fortune, oh the memories.

I do remember that happening as well because I was using a standalone mic with speakers. I think before I moved to a headset I tried applying some kind of sensitivity level to the mic in Teamspeak and/or in Windows. I haven't used a mic in a long time, though.

Yeah, I believe if you "listen to" something you'll get either a huge feedback or a definate echo if not used correctly.


Just noticed you said

In playback properties mic input is turned down to zero

I'd imagine if you practically 'disable' your mic, no one could possibly hear anything through the mic, therefore no echo. There is an option on the "Enhancements" tab called "Aucoustic Echo Cancellation", did you try that? Maybe a mixture of settings in Windows and Teamspeak together will help out.

For about 4 months my PC has been telling me that no speakers or headphones are plugged in even though i have connected speakers or headphones (Tried both). It also does not recognize my microphone when i connect it. I have updated my audio drivers several times with no success.I have tried both the front ,and back sockets and neither would work. I have recently installed windows 10 thinking that would help but the audio is exactly the same. At the moment i am using a USB headset and that is the only way i can have sound maybe because it uses a separate driver.But any way i want to be able to use my speakers and my good headphones again. This is a huge deal for me as i produce music and i want to be able to hear sound.

A:Computer does not recognize input or output

First you need, at a minimum Windows 8.1 sound drivers. However, as it didn't work in Win 8.1, and upgrading didn't help it may take a full "clean" install of the OS.

Without getting deep into troubleshooting, we have a sister Windows 10 forum and as this is a Windows 10 problem (now since 10 is installed) we ask that you post on the ten forum www.tenforums.,com

You have to find out in which form the film is posted in. Most films are uploaded in a form of compression to enable people to download them quicker. You need to post here the type of compression used in the films that you cant play. For instance, if its an AVI file, the film will only play in a DVD Player that supports AVI. You can convert the files into another type of compression, or you can convert it to Vob files, which all DVDs are produced in. But if you post the details, I will try and help you more . Delgado

The first time I tried burning a DVD I used NeroVision and I used a video guide. In the very last part where you choose to burn to a dvd it showed the person choosing their dvd drive, but for me the drive wasnt there, so I chose to save it to my documents. I have a Dell Dimension 3000 and im pretty sure it has a Burning Drive because where you put in the disc it says compact disc ReWritable and the DVD rom symbol. Should I use Nero Burning Rom instead or can someone guide me through the process?

Ok to start with you can't burn dvd movies that are copyright. For example like The Hulk or Spiderman. As it would be illegal. Now if its home movies you are after to burn new copies now you can do that. And i don't think your computer has a dvd burner. If it did it would say something like dvd writer. now i might be wrong though. Now i have read your computer has a dvd reader though.

Hi all. I've got an HP Pavilion 750c, 1.8ghz, 80gb hard drive about half full, and I recently installed an HP 530i dvd burner. The burner burns cd's just fine, but I can't get a DVD to burn to save my life. I'm using captured home video, BTW.

First I tried ArcSoft Showbiz 2, which came with the burner, and with most of the DVD's I burned, the menu shows up, but I can't get any further. I click on the menu and nothing happens.

I have downloaded the InterVideo WinDVD Creator 2 trial version, and it seems to burn OK, but when I go to play the disc, the colors are all dark and wrong. I've tried to play them with RealPlayer, InterVideo DVD, and WMP.

I have tried this with cheap discs from Fry's and some Memorex ones too, just to see if it was the cheap discs. Now I'm plum out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

I have brought some Memorex DVD+RWs but I am having trouble burning DVDs.

The problem is that the PC will not recognise the DVD+RW disc. So every time I go to 'write these files to CD' I get stuck on the wizard when it asks me to insert the DVD, I have done but the PC is not recognising the disc.

I did it before using nero, I put a CD-R in and using Nero I made a CD which played video on my DVD player, but I am not sure if this is the same.

I looked on Device Manager and I have a SAMSUNG CDRW/DVD SM-348B. I am running Windows XP Home.

Can I actually burn DVDs on this PC?

If not, what do I need to download/buy to get my PC recognising the DVD+RW discs and enabling me to burn a DVD.

i have a friend who believes that if he buys a dvdr or dvdrw, he can just rent a dvd movie (ex// the matrix), burn it, then give it back, thus owning a dvd movie at the fraction of the cost (or borrowing someone else's movie, buring it and giving it back). I dont believe it is possibe. Is he rite or Im rite?

A:Burning DVDs

Firstly, what you are describing IS piracy, IS copyright infringement, and IS illegal.

And even if your friend gets a DVD writer, there is still CSS encryption on the DVD. This means that, for example, if he was to copy the files from the DVD onto his hard drive and then try to play it, it would not work very well at all, because 1/4 of the content he had copied to his HDD would be gibberish.

If he wanted to copy DVDs, he would need a piece of software which strips the CSS encryption from the files as they are written to the hard drive before he burned them to a DVD. I believe that such software, although available here and there perhaps, is also illegal now.

There is software around to rip DVDs to Divx files to burn to CDs.

Lastly, I don't believe that this "friend" of yours exists, and that in fact you are talking about yourself. So why not come clean about that??

But if your question is, is this possible? Yes. It is. If you strip the CSS encryption away whilst writing the files from the DVD to your hard drive, and then burn those to a DVD disk, yes. I have seen it done.

I'm having a strange and frustrating issue with my Creative Labs Fatal1ty Gaming Headset; it has recently begun recording the sound my desktop makes (output) instead of my voice (input).

I've tried everything to get this to work, but nothing seems to be going correctly.

My jacks are plugged in correctly.

Also, I recently updated my Realtek drivers (in an attempt to fix this issue), but now it doesn't show up properly on my computer. (Edit: The Realtek issue has been fixed, but my microphone is still only recording desktop noise instead of my voice.)

A:Issue: Microphone recording output, not input..

I'm going to try and reorganize this for people looking. My original post is lacking in details.

My microphone is not recording input at all. In fact, the only thing it IS recording is my stereo input (aka, what I hear from my earphones).

A day ago it was working properly, and then I attempted to stream my gameplay using's Procaster program. I THINK this is when things messed up, as afterwards when I attempt to speak to someone through voice chat I am instead just telling them whatever I'm hearing at the moment.

I've thoroughly inspected my Control Panel settings and checked what's up with the microphone - I have four items there under the recording tab when managing my audio devices: "Internal AUX Jack", "Mic in the rear panel (Pink)", "Microphone (my laptop's internal microphone)", and "Stereo Mix". The odd thing I've noticed is that the volume bar for "Mic in the rear panel" goes up and down in tune with what I'm hearing. So far, fiddling with the options here does nothing.

I use Realtek HD Audio Manager and have updated it to the highest driver versions. I've checked the settings for this and am unable to find anything that can help me.

I'm gonna go with no.

The way I imagine it the wiring could be adapted and re-soldered to the board to allow it, but the chip would still not know what to do with the signal, and it would probably fry.

If anyone knows anything I don't here I'd love to hear it, but it sounds grim to me.

Easier would probably;y be a modulator to use from the Wii to the monitor.

Can you remove the modem, and then boot to "Safe Mode Command Prompt" ( I think you press the F8 key when you see the message " Starting Windows 98 ) then run scanreg/restore and restore it to a date before you made the changes ??

If this will let the sound work, move the modem to a different PCI slot, and see if the conflict goes away...

A:Can you use the audio output and input jack at the same time?

You have RealTek PC audio. Have the "Stereo Mix" set as the default recording device and you will be able to directly record streaming audio with Audacity. Nothing else is needed.

You can probably do it with all the extra equipment, but its not needed and can really get in the way for recording streaming internet audio.

I have Goldwave and use that for the same thing, but Audacity will record from the Stereo Mix so that's all you need.

Is there any way to burn these files so the whole video will be viewable?

OK, first has the DVD-R already have files burned on it? You can only use a DVD-R once, unless you chose to not close the session after burning. Next, what software are you using to burn the DVD? This may seem obvious, but do you have a DVD/RW drive?
Be sure you are using a blank DVD-R that is a name brand not a generic (Phillips, Sony, TDK etc) Try using the free program CDBurner XP and choose to make a Data Disc, and drop your photos into that.

Hi guys I have a problem, I am doing some video capture from my TV via RCA cales. I have the Vid cale and both audio cables running from my TV out to my capture device. I can do the capture, edit a movie and burn it to DVD no sweat, the problem being when I play the DVD in my DVD player the sound seems very low. It sounds ok on my comp when I make the video but the audio is just very quiet when I play it in the DVD player. any way to really boost up the sound I need it to be VERY loud. Thanks guys!

Capture device : DAZZLE digital video creator 150
Sound card : Creative SB audigy 2 platinum
Software : pinnaclle studio 9 and bundled software/windows movie maker / all audigy bundled software
DVD player is a real cheapo though don't know if that mnakes a difference.

Thanks guys!

I have an internal CD-RW, and wanted a DVD burner. I bought an external LG GSA-E40N/L. Works great.
When I get a new PC, a DVD burner will be included. Thus, I will have 2 DVD burners. Or should I ask for no DVD burner on a new PC? A DVD-ROM or a CD-RW instead?
My question is this: I want to have 2 DVDs of copies of photos, work, etc. Is it ok to burn to an internal CD-R/DVD and an external DVD simultaneously? I want to save time, and burning at a slow speed such as 16x would take too long if burning one at a time. Besides, what's the point of having 2 DVD burners then?

A:burning 2 DVDs at same time

With the full version of Nero there is an option to burn to multiple burners, but I am not certain it will work with an external, I don't know why it wouldn't, I am just not sure if it will.

What is the best software for burning DVDs in XP? I can burn to CD on an external CD/DVD burner drive I have, but apparently XP does not support burning to DVD, and there is no driver for my external that enables the feature of the drive. I know it's possible, because of all the machines that came with an internal DVD burner that had XP on them. The only difference between those drives and mine must be the driver software. Mine has internal drivers that use the OS functions only. I did check for updated drivers with the manufacturer, but there weren't any that addressed this issue.

I am sure somebody else has had this problem over the years. What should I do? The free burner utilities available do not enable this feature for my drive. Would software like Nero make it possible for me to burn to DVD?

A little bit of history:
My DVD-RW drive conked out a couple of months ago, and I had an engineer come and replace it (under extended warranty). I used the drive at least once after that to burn a DVD. I tried burning a DVD a couple of weeks ago (Nero 7) and got an error message, but didn't have time to investigate. Tried burning an audio CD last week (Instant CD+DVD) and got an error message, but was again pushed for time so didn't investigate. I've been working six days a week for the past couple of months and I finally have a weekend off so here I am!

Ah, apparently this message is too long, so I'll post the other half in a reply.

I have a Canon Vixia HFS100 Camcorder (with SD Card). I was able to transfer the videos from my SD card to my Lenovo Laptop with Windows 8. It does have a DVD/CD tray for burning discs. The problem is that I can't figure out how to burn DVDs of my videos. I have a Roxio Creator program from my previous computer that I loaded onto my Lenovo but I still cannot figure out how to transfer my uploaded camcorder videos. I have no problem burning CD's from my ITunes library.

Does Windows xp contain the Question in XP DVDs about Burning logic for burning DVDs or is this logic only available through DVD hardware drivers I have an HP y CD DVD R W pretty sure Question about Burning DVDs in XP it s also and until now I ve always been satisfied burning to CD However I have known for some time that the burn to DVD feature was unavailable to me I know the unit reads DVDs a feature I use fairly frequently for installing software or playing music or movies The unit works like a charm and it has been great so I am fairly certain that it is working fine Also I scoured the internet for threads on the topic this is the second time actually and it always comes down to the same thing At least one of the posts in each of the threads that I have found has mentioned that Windows xp does not support burning to DVD I Question about Burning DVDs in XP asked around years ago and someone told me that service pack solved this problem so I installed it but I still can t write or burn to DVD What I would like is a definitive kernel of fact so that I can proceed with a course of action I really need to be able to burn to DVD so I would like to Question about Burning DVDs in XP know what exactly are the facts with xp and burning DVDs Must my DVD player s driver have the logic for the burn feature to work for DVDs I contacted HP a few years ago First I tried a driver that was written for the B model of the DVD mine is Y It didn t work but it was the only one available so I contacted HP help via e-mail I got a response but it was definitely not what I wanted to hear They just weren t going to listen to my problem Sort of an quot I don t know but I am definitely not getting into this issue with anyone goodbye and have a nice day quot response That left me with the feeling at the time that I was in the middle of a tussle between Microsoft and HP over who should be writing the compatibility code for the various hardware peripherals I almost felt like HP had a grudge with Microsoft over having to include special functions in their drivers when they felt that xp should support their hardware products Personally I guess I can sort of see their point if this is true But hey Microsoft is the giant Seems like when they make up their minds on a issue they just leave the issue in the past no matter how easy it would be for them to issue a fix My suspicion is that all the programming for burning to DVD must be in the DVD driver for me to be able to burn to DVD in xp and that HP missed the boat with their driver It s a real shame to me because the unit is really an excellent one and it was MADE for xp The speed is great and the quality is top I am very confident with my burns to CD Anyway thanks ahead of time I would really like to replace my suspicion with some facts so anyone with the definitive truth about xp and burning DVDs please reply nbsp

Hi I m trying to burn a DVD to backup some files e g docs photos music but am having trouble I use a Compaq Evo N v laptop that has a built-in DVD ROM drive I ve tried the Trouble DVDs burning following putting a blank DVD in the drive then going to Windows Explorer Selecting the files to copy and then pasting them on to the DVD drive d This then created temporary files and by right-clicking my mouse I got the option to write the files to CD This gave me the error saying that there is no disk in the drive So I installed a copy of Nero and tried using their file backup Trouble burning DVDs wizard However when trying to select the DVD drive it said I needed to select a valid target So I thought it might be because I was using DVDs so I put a CD-R in the drive The drive read the CD and automatically opened up a Windows Explorer box showing me that there was already a file on the CD There was still plenty of space left on the CD however so I went through the Nero wizard again but got the same message about having to select a valid target I m now at my wits end and don t know what to try next Is it just me being dumb or could it possibly be a faulty disk drive I wonder whether it might be the latter as I ve been using the drive to copy my music CDs onto my MP player and the drive doesn t always recognise the music CD Any advice on what I should do would be greatly appreciated Many thanks nbsp

When i burn a dvd in nero, it just doesnt seem right. the read buffer stays at 100% but the write buffer goes up and down constantly. to 99% then 27% then back to 83% and random numbers like that.. I have 8x TDK dvd+r and when i burnt at 8x i got pretty much everything was a dud (a coaster) and last night i burnt at 4x and it took a lot longer than nero predicted and it was fine... but when i burnt 4x i actually saved it to an image then burnt the image onto the disc with nero because i was sick of wasting dvd's so i tried a new method. I was just worrying about the write buffer mainly. i think that is affecting burn time and performance. my specs:

3.2Ghz Pentium 4 (HT)
1GB ddr400 RAM
Gigabyte Technology DVD±RW 16x16

A:Problems burning DVDs

if you're trying to make backups of movies then use ripit4me with dvd shrink and dvddcrypter

bear in mind not all dvds can be hacked, but I have not found one yet that ripit4me cannot break. Of course this is only for legitimate back up purposes. Anything else would be illegal.

Hey, i'm having problems when it comes to burning dvds, usually it takes 20 minutes to read them only about 10 to write them but lately my DVD drive has only been reading at 2x, taking about 1 hour and 6 minutes to copy them, i have tried going into the RegEdit and i changed some stuff in there and it worked temporarily. Any idea as to why this is happening? Help would be appreciated.

Hi Gbizkit and welcome to TSF !

At what speed does your burner read regular DVD's (DVD you bought) ? Are you still using the same media brand as before ? Can you read the DVD's you burned at the normal speed on another computer ?

What's your burner brand and model ? If you don't know you can find out in the device manager (start => run => devmgmt.msc) under DVD/CD-rom drives. Check on the burner's manufacturer website whether the media you're using are fully compatible with your burner.

Use kprobe to test the quality of the burning. Ideally PIF should be under 5 and PI under 50. If it's more than ten times that then you should seriously consider writing at a slower speed to ensure that you'll still be able to read those DVD's in 3 or 4 years.

What settings did you change in the registry ?

So I ve been researching this for a while now and I just can t succeed in burning a DVD that ll work on most DVD players I just found a program called DVD Flick that converts it into VOB files which I think might Burning DVDs universal be the right format for what I m looking for I tried it a few days ago I accidentally converted the movie without burning so I dragged and dropped it onto the DVD I tried and played it and no success I m going to try and going straight from convert to burn since it has the option I just don t want to be waisting to many DVDs Am I on the right track or does someone else have a program they prefer I have AVS Video Converter which I ve been using for my iTouch and PSP and Burning universal DVDs see that also has a DVD converter option which I ve yet to try Thanks nbsp

A:Burning universal DVDs

If you dragged and dropped, you made a UDF format DVD. If you see the option in DVDFlick to burn, go directly to that instead of burning the files separately by another method and that will work fine. You can use another burner, but make it the standard ISO format if you do.
