Mydvd Burn Stops At 97%
Posted 18 February 2015 - 11:12 AM
After setting up the basic menu in MyDVD the final burn file runs a little over 6 GB. I'm burning to a Memorex DVD+R DL (double layer) disc with 8.5 GB capacity.
Everything goes smoothly until the last step (Complete) when the burn process hangs at 97% (seemingly a magic number ifor Roxio disasters). I've waited 30 minutes and no luck. The burn progress window does not respond to clicking Cancel. Even Task Manager can't close the program -- it keeps telling me there's a window that's waiting for an answer (there is none). The only way I can close Roxio and unlock the disk drive is reboot.
Any ideas? Does MyDVD not handle DL disks? Would Videowave be better?

Memorex is the bottom of the barrel or lower. Are you getting any write errors?
Have you tried making a ISO file (rather than burning it to a DVD) to see if there is anything wrong in the project? If so, it will hang. If not, it will complete. You can then copy the ISo to the disc using the application on the Home page.

They both worked like a charm. I kind of expected that from the ISO-sourced disk. But I never though the direct-burned one would play. After all, the burn on that one had stopped at 97% and frozen the program.
Any ideas as to what's going on? I'm not complaining at this point, and will use the ISO-to-DVD method on all future projects, but it would be nice to know why this happened.
