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

using the search button (top right).

Hi,

I'm also having this errror pop up when I try to burn a movie production i've worked really hard on.  Its frustrating because i've come across so many glitches and nothing seems to workout.  I've been able to get it to start "encoding" except it always says

Failed to start the image writing operation Error while  Burning Image

80004003 Error while  Aborting

I've tryed dragging it into the disk file in my computer

i've tryed making another project just to see if it works and I get the same thing....
what could be wrong?

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