PROBLEM LISTED BELOW:
Can someone out there please help me with this weird problem that came up all of the sudden?
1) EVERYTHING is correct and compatible.
2) Recently converted files AND repeatedly burnt discs successfully
3) Have a PURCHASED, latest version (18.104.22.168)
4) Sony DVD-R nice media with my Sony drive....no problems there.
5) Settings are DEFINITELY correct on all tabs
6) Windows XP, Intel 4 cpu....plenty of room on my Hard Drive...as i said.....NO problems EVER....UNTIL the other day.
This has been my 'Log Readings'(there has never been any 'Burn Error' indicated) for every single Burn Project SINCE the problem:

Since problem, I have done UNsuccessful Burns, as I have tried MANY times - changing ALL the settings and trying a Burn each time after trying ALL the different settings.
As I said, ALL my settings and my past Conversions and Burns were always successful, so I have all that hard stuff DONE.
And again, have ENTIRELY uninstalled and installed three times.
I put the Disc in, select all my 'settings'...
Choose the folder with the three files(AUDIO_TS, ORIGINAL, and VIDEO_TS) as always.
As you can see by the Log, everything is recognized and ready to start the Burn.
THEN...The 'Burn Progression Bar'(right above the Log window) starts Loading as usual, BUT, as you can see, the Log shows NO chapters being burnt, No Burning is happening.
The 'Burn Progression Bar' immediately starts dropping from '1 hour remaining' down to '37 minutes remaining', to '20 minutes remaining', to '14 minutes remaining' then finalizes and ejects my Disc....THE WHOLE PROCESS taking only about 11 minutes.
..and obviously not Burning 'ANYTHING' to the Disc.
Sounds to me like this is a new problem, probably only experienced by a few of us...
But I can't do a thing to fix this.
Even entered my 'KEY' in each time too.
So, can anyone, the Techs included, please shed some light on this for me?
It's been vexing to say the least.
