    Last 2 times I burned DVDs (from video files) with my Nero software errors occurred in the background (not in Nero) and it seemed to make the burn take longer. In Event Viewer I think I saw Event ID 17 and 29. I put my cable modem on stand by and turn off as many processes as I can that run in the background to conserve resources. My CPU runs at 100% while transcoding the files to burn. Whole process usually takes 3 to 4 hours. These last 2 times it took over 5 hours. I suspect because other things on my PC were going on in the background. The DVD gets done finally and works fine.

    Is it possible to burn DVDs in Safe Mode? Would this be a good idea, so that all the back ground processes are at a bare minimum?

    a nice quick safe way of shuting down all the programs running is a program callled Smartclose its free and it closes all programs and prossess excpt for the ones xp needs to live on.
    also when your finnished you can restart any thing it shut down just as easaly. though i find it better to just restart my pc.

    theres no ads or spyware or anything to worry about. i love this program and use it when i run defrag or play a game

    heres what that site says
