Re: burning help
Try some software called Slysoft AnyDVD, with CloneDVD. Any more than that you need to give some more info on what exactly it is that your copying. If its a movie its probly the copy right protection on it.

whats happening is this..lets say I want to copy an audio cd from my hard drive to a cd. i burn it using my cd/dvd burner and it works fine. When i have a movie or video file on my hard drive and try to burn it to DVD using my cd-dvd burner, my computer locks up about 1 minute after I start the burning process.

Re: burning help
What program are you using to burn with? (nero) Theres a number of things that can cause it to lock up. Turn the burn speed down, stop any other apps, check drivers or updates, reinstall your burner,and thats just the tip of the iceberg.

Re: burning help
I too was thinking about Ram memory... also, hardisk space... (maybe, depending on the setup of the computer), speed of computer... etc...

Re: burning help
Lack of hard disk space is the most likely problem here. I've had instances where I've tried to burn DVDs and my computer has locked up - it's because whatever burning software you use creates a temporary file where the CD/DVD data is stored before burning it to the disc. It's fine when you're burning just 700 MB, but it can be a problem when burning more than 4 GB of data and you have about 4.5 GB free on your drive.

Re: burning help
Thanks for all of your help. its very possible the answer is the hard disk space, as the drive the burner is associated with is only 8 GB, with 6.5 GB full. I have to find a way to associate the burner with my 300 gb drive.
