Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).

Answers :

Make sure you treat your blank CD-R's with respect.
\015\012Scratches or dust may cause write errors! Handle the disc carefully when transferring it to the CD drive!\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012DMA & Auto Insert Notification (AIN)
\015\012DMA does not allow the CPU to have full control of the Writer, thus\015\012causing Lock-ups and Buffer Under Run Errors. Auto Insert Notification\015\012causes a CD Disc to autorun. This causes problems when you use the\015\012Writer as the Reader & as the Writer. Rule of Thumb, always uncheck\015\012Auto Insert Notification and DMA\015\012To disable AIN with MP3 CD Burner, simply go into the Preferences and\015\012uncheck 7q\015\012Auto Insert Notification7q You will have to reboot.\015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Media
Non-Branded\015\012media/No Name media is generally lower quality and are commonly\015\012referred to as Seconds or "B" grade. This type of media will cause\015\012errors when writing, especially on the outer part of the disc (500 MB\015\012or better) where the dye becomes thinner. This can also cause playback problems.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Close all Programs prior to Writing
\015\012Using CTRL+ALT+DEL will allow you to access the Close Program window.\015\012The only programs that should be running while Writing are EXPLORER,\015\012NTI Software & SYSTRAY if you must. TSRs will steal CPU time away\015\012from the Writer, which may cause Lock-ups and Buffer Under Run errors.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Screen Savers & Virus Checkers
\015\012These programs should have been closed in step #3. Screen Savers, Virus\015\012Checkers, Crash Guards and Uninstallers will intercept commands and\015\012steal CPU time away from the Writer, which may cause Lock-ups and\015\012Buffer Under Run errors. (Screen savers are automatically disabled\015\012during a burn with CD Burner.)\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Power Management
\015\012Power management is a program that shuts down the Hard Drive and turns\015\012off the computer's monitor to save energy. These actions may cause\015\012Lock-ups and Buffer Under Run errors if they happen during the writing\015\012process. It is highly recommended to turn off Power Management in both\015\012the Control panel and in the computer's BIOS. (Power management is\015\012automatically disabled during a burn with CD Burner.)\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Defragging the Hard Drive
\015\012It is recommended to Defrag the Hard Drive prior to writing a CD. If\015\012the Hard Drive is fragmented, it will cause the Hard Drive's access\015\012time to diminish. A slower access time may cause Buffer Under Run\015\012errors due to the extra time it takes the Hard Drive to send the data\015\012to the Writer.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Disc Compression
\015\012Compressed Hard Drives (Double Spaced) will cause the access time to\015\012diminish. A slower access time may cause Buffer Under Run errors due to\015\012the extra time it takes to uncompress the data and send it to the\015\012Writer.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Latest Writing Software
\015\012A lot of little problems are solved by upgrading to the latest Writing\015\012software. Updates have patches to fix bugs and known writing problems.\015\012It is highly recommended to always use the latest software available. \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Viruses
\015\012There is always a possibility of a Virus being on your system\015\012causing weird problems. Running a Virus scan on the computer will\015\012verify a clean system. Make sure you have the most current virus\015\012definitions installed in your Virus program. In addition, don't forget\015\012to turn off the Virus program prior to writing.
\015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Reboot / Restart
\015\012If the computer has been on for a while, reboot (restart) the computer prior to writing.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Multiple Writing Software Programs
\015\012Having multiple writing software on your systems (Adaptec, Nero,\015\012Prassi, Veritas, etc.) are known to cause system lock-ups. This is due\015\012to each writing software modifying the same files "winaspi.dll,\015\012wnaspi32.dll, and apix.vxd" and then not being compatible with each\015\012other. This normally is the case on older operating systems (Windows\015\01295/98/NT). In newer operating systems, writing software's have their\015\012own ASPI layer, however more than two writing software are also know to\015\012cause lock-ups.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Log file says "*** Found DLL's for WinOnCD!!!"
\015\012There are known conflicts between WinOnCD and our MP3 CD Burner\015\012software on some Windows installations. If you are having burning\015\012problems, and your log file says "*** Found DLL's for WinOnCD!!!" you\015\012may choose to uninstall WinOnCD via the Add/Remove Control panel.\015\012Alternatively, you can go into your "WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\IOSUBSYS" directory\015\012and rename the following files:\015\012
  • from C2APIX.VXD - to C2APIX.BAK
  • \015\012
  • from C2REC.VXD - to C2REC.BAK
Restart Windows and try the software again. If it doesn't make a\015\012difference and you want to continue using WinOnCD, you should restore\015\012the 2 files to their original names.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Bus Mastering Driver Conflicts
\015\012They cause intermittent lock-ups and static on audio files. Most Bus\015\012Mastering drivers are not compliant with any Writer, Tape Back-up, etc.\015\012Uninstalling the Bus Mastering drivers will fix a lot of writing\015\012problems. (Manufactures: ALI, VIA, SYS, Intel, CMD, OPTI, TYAN, AMD)\015\012This is only for the technically experienced. Most people reading this\015\012should have an experienced Windows technician check this out. More on\015\012this in the McFadden FAQ .\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Latest Firmware
\015\012A lot of little problems are solved by Flashing the Writer to the\015\012latest firmware available. Updated Firmware has patches to fix bugs and\015\012known writing problems. It is highly recommended to always use the\015\012latest Firmware available.\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012Dual Boot Systems
\015\012Multiple Operating Systems are known problems with Writers. Trying the\015\012Writer on a Single Operating System is an easy way to confirm this\015\012problem. We do not recommend or support Dual Boot/Multiple Operating\015\012Systems due to known problems.\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012CD-ROM Dos Drivers
\015\012Computers that load the CD-ROM DOS driver (16 bit) in the Config.sys\015\012file and the Microsoft extensions (MSCDEX.EXE) in the Autoexec.bat\015\012file, may/will cause conflicts with the Windows drivers. It is highly\015\012recommended to remove these lines from the above-mentioned files.\015\012Symptoms would include Lock-ups, Buffer Underruns, Intermittent errors,\015\012and Yellow Exclamation points on the Primary or Secondary IDE ports.\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012Startup programs are slowing down computer
\015\012The solution is to disable startup programs. Warning! If you aren't\015\012sure what you are doing, proceed with caution! Click Window's Start\015\012button, followed by clicking "Run". Type ""msconfig"" without the\015\012quotes followed by clicking "OK". Click on the "General" tab, followed\015\012by un-checking "Load Startup Group Items". Click "Apply" and then "OK".\015\012You will need to restart. (Note that some startup items might be\015\012necessary to run your computer peripherals. This is a good test to see\015\012if a start up program is slowing your computer down, though.) If you\015\012need to re-enable Startup programs, repeat the instruction above,\015\012except make sure to check the "Load Startup Group Items"
