To all tech savvy people. I am having a frustrating problem using my Windows DVD Maker that no one can seems to explain. I have a new computer, less than a month old, running in Windows 7. I have been trying to burn some home movie clips on to DVDs for my various friends and family. I completed 3 or 4 DVDs successfully. All of a sudden, during the burning process, I get to a point about 0.3 to 0.4 percent encoded when I get an error message that the DVD cannot be made due to an unspecified error. Every fresh, new, out of the package disk I try to use ends up with the same message. The clips haven't changed, the filters haven't changed, and the settings haven't changed. I have successfully burned a few DVDs with no problem, now all of a sudden it can't burn any more discs. What happened?
What do I need to do to fix it?
Using Windows DVD Maker is so frustrating
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 playing or viewing them usingWindows 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 clickOptions.
In the DVD burner speed box, select Medium or Slow.
Open Windows DVD Maker by clicking Start, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows DVD Maker.
On the Share your memories on a DVD page, click Choose Photos and Videos.
On the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, click Options.
For DVD burner speed, click Slow, and then click OK.
On the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, click Add Items.
Locate and select the imported video file on your computer, and then click Add.
