I have a HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC running Vista Home Premium SP2.

I have used this system to burn family movies to DVD before and have even pulled some of our favorite old VHS movies onto my system as an .avi and then burnt the .avi to backup DVD playable in our standalone DVD player. I use ConvertXtoDVD or Nero to burn.
We made a movie at a birthday party last week and I finally got around to trying to burn it to DVD yesterday.
I first tried using ConvertXtoDVD. It went through the entire process and reported a successful burn, but there was nothing on the DVD+R. So I tried using Nero and again it went through the entire process and reported a successful burn and again there was nothing actually on the disk. I tried several times and used a few different disks, but every time it seemed as though everything worked just fine, but there was nothing actually on the DVD after the burn.
Oddly I can put any CD or DVD in my system and it will play them.

Any ideas as to why it would seem like the burn is successful, but nothing actually burnt onto the DVD?

Thanks for any help.

The movies are in .avi format. No I havent tried burning any other movies. I'll pull up one of our old movies and try to burn it and report back if it worked or not.

Thanks for the reply.
