Help plz! image recording issue

hello guys, I’m new to this whole alcohol 120% thing, so I need a little help here. I’ve been trying to record different dvd’s images from my hard drive to dvd’s, but they all fail. When no more than 64k or something like that have been burnt onto the disc, the progress meter gets stuck and stays like that. After about ten minutes, an error comes up, and you’ve got another dvd ruined. This also happens if I tell the software to only perform a test, without actually writing anything.
I tested various media, but no results. The problem seems to be originated by alcohol, since I can burn dvd’s perfectly with other programmes, such as nero.
I’d really appreciate your help, since I’ve googled this issue, and haven’t found anything about it yet. Thanx in advance :slight_smile: .

Please post a complete system report from within Alcohol.

Sorry for the delay… here’s the error report from alcohol 120% when trying to burn an image to a dvd. Most of it is in spanish, but if you need it to be 100% english I’ll reinstall alcohol in that language.
