    i was burning dvd's fine and now all of a sudden it spits out the dvd before it closes it. it gets to 98% and says it's finishing but then it spits it out and says it's finished. it plays on my pc but not on my tv dvd player.

    Yeah, it's definately not finalizing the disc. Have you made any changes to your machine prior to the problem?

    i downloaded a program the other day - something that ripped dvd's - can't remember the name. i only did it because i had a home made dvd that i couldn't get the video off of and onto my pc. i deleted the program. do you think it changed my settings and how do i get it back to normal

    OK. I would suggest two things:

    1) use another dvd burning program. (What do you use now?)

    2) if you do not have access to another program, try using system restore points
