Ahead sw has been unable to fix this, perhaps an enlightend read can...
I copied a VHS tape onto my SOny Vaio using Gigapocket. Within gigapocket, I exported the file to a normal .mpeg2 file. I used Nero Express to add some chapter markers, then save the file and project. Saved OK, can watch the movie on the PC fine. I then use NR to burn a dvd. It shows 5.x GB and asks me if I want to save it in LP format, which will reduce it to 3.8 GB...I accept the option. Nero burns the DVD then, at the 72% mark, fails with a DVD 'write error'...I made 3 coasters, all with the exact same behavior. I then tried to burn to a R/W DVD and, it worked. So, I figure I'll copy the RW to a R....then, it fails the same way, with a dvd write error! (WTF?) I've burned other DVD with SONIC before and after this, with no problems, so I believe the HP DVD drive is OK.
Any clues/hints would be appreciated.
