    I've recently began using Windows DVD maker (came with vista premium) to burn dvds. The first two dvd's burnt fine (avi files). When I went to burn the 3rd DVD, it froze during the encoding process. I tried to burn a WMV file instead and it worked. I then went to burn 10 WMV files that totalled 60 minutes onto a DVD and then an error message occurs when it reaches 99.0%, when it is finishing the DVD. The error says "An error occurred when burning the DVD". I've tried slowing the burning speed down to medium and slow and it still doesn't work. The AVI files play fine in DivX and the WMV files play fine in Windows Media Player. I'm using TDK DVD+R discs. I have 1GB RAM. Can someone help me to fix the problem so I can burn DVDs or offer an alternative solution?

    Also, the first two times I burnt a DVD it took some time, which I didn't mind, but when the error message occurs, it occurs within a few minutes of starting to burn the DVD. Don't know if this is usefull.

    Troubleshoot by trying some different burning software such as Nero 8 trial and try a different brand of DVD (Verbatim branded works best for me for example-results are a bit spotty for me and TDK though I'm sure they work perfect for someone else). Slowing the burn down was a good idea to try though I don't think Vista lets you customize the burn speed much does it? Nero should be better at that and most likely better burning software overall.
