FORGET THE 8G ! Remember the one hour for single layer DVD and a little less than 2 hours for a dual layer, If you are using anything other than mpg2 files, they need to be converted to that format and thus increase the size of the project.
When was the last time you updated the drivers for your video card? They don;t automatically update unless you tell it to. That is why I asked for the dxdiag evaluation of your computer in my post above. You did not attach it. There is no persona information other than the name of your computer if posting the information is a problem for you.
Tell us more about your submenus. How many video are you trying to put onto the disc? What menu template are you using. Most menus allow about 4 items per page - 7 submenus by 4 = a lot of individual videos or chapters.
Try this, it will add a little of your time to creating the DVD. In Video Wave, add the slide show )or just open it). Select OUTPUT and then select mpg2 (I assume that you are not trying to create an AVCHD disc or a blu ray). Wait until the output is finished. If it finishes, you can just add that to your DVD project. If it does not finish, then there is something wrong in the production. If you watch it, you can see about where there is and error in the slide show. You should be able to correct it.
If this is an important project, do this for all the individual projects so you have mpg files to add to the DVD. Since they have already been made compatible, they should not cause a hang. From myDVD, output to an ISO file so that your computer works on only one thing at a time. When you have the ISO file, burn that to your DVD using the application on the Home page..
