Failed to start the image writing operation Error while Burning Image

Question

I recently converted .flv files to .avi, and I want to burn them to a dvd using Roxio 9.0. I go to create the dvd, and it lets me drag and drop the .avi files, and i start to burn the disk. The dvd burns all the way through, and then the following error pops up.

 

Failed to start the image writing operation Error while Burning Image

80004003 Error while Aborting

 

 

I've wasted a total of 4 disks trying to figure out how to correct this problem, and I haven't seen any responses from this forum that's worked, so if anyone knows how to correct this problem, any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like you were burning a data disc, using Drag to Disc. Neither will work if you want it to play as a DVD movie.

 

Open MyDVD, bring in that .avi file, then burn it to an Image file. Open Disc Copier, bring in that .ISO (image file), and burn it to a disc.

 

BTW, never use Drag to Disc to burn anything.

Thanks so much for your help! =] I'm not familiar with Disc Copier, where can I find it? Is it already installed with MyDVD? thanks again!

I have EMC 9. I don't know if it is included in the standalone MyDVD program.

 

At any rate, you can try to burn it directly to a DVD in MyDVD. Hopefully that will work.

Sounds like it's possibly a hardware issue. Here's one of the posts I found when searching on Burning Image

80004003 Error while Aborting using the search button (top right).

Check for the latest drivers for your video card and also install the latest DirectX.

 

That problem is a hardware one
