This entry is the closest to my problem so I'll post here. I have Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron. I've done a lot of work with EAsy VHS to DVD 3 Plus, generally successful using the "record, edit, save" option. Now I'm trying to do a set of straight recordings of videotapes less than 2 hrs long to Verbatim disks, 4.7 GB, DVD+R, brand new, at lowest quality. The problem is that one out of maybe three attempts works. The other times, it goes through the whole process and then when "Finishing" I get an error message, "There is a problem writing to this disk." I can understand a bad disk every now and then, but I've tossed a dozen out of 20 attempts and that is absurd. .... I saw one reply that said "delete your device and let Windows find it" -- that sounds terrifying, and I don't know how to do it. Why should I do that? If you're really correct, how do I do it?
