I can’t burn DVD using Windows DVD Maker

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I am burning .WMV files using Windows DVD Maker on Vista. This is the default program on my Compaq PC. Usually, it works without any problem, but once in awhile the burn goes all the way to 99% then an error will pop-up "cannot create DVD". I have found that it works fine if I remove a specific file and replace it. Is there any way to identify which files might be causing this without wasting any more DVDs?

Verify that the DVD burner is connected properly to your computer and powered on, and that any necessary software drivers for the DVD burner are installed. You can check your hardware settings in the Device Manager by doing the following:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Hardware and Sound.
Click Device Manager.
Make sure that the videos you're trying to burn are not corrupted. To see whether the videos you want to burn are corrupted, try to play or viewing them using Windows Media Player. If the files don't play using the Player, Windows DVD Maker cannot burn them.
Choose a slower burning speed for your DVD burner by doing the following:
Return to the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, and then click Options.
In the DVD burner speed box, select Medium or Slow.
