Sorry your post got overlooked, guess everybody thought all the SAW III problems were solved. :o Did you get any error codes when the burn failed? And which burn engine do you have selected, Nero or VSO? First thing to try, select "SAO" in Common Settings-->Write, "Write type of DVD-R media" pulldown menu. Don't know what speed you burned, but try one at half of whatever speed the disc is rated for (and maybe try a different brand of blanks). See how that runs and post back with the results. /OFF TOPIC/Your pontoon boat would be upside down if it was on the water around here tonight. Wind gusts 30-35 MPH.
