I just got my Roxio 9 in November. I have a brand new Compaq, Presario. I have slowly moved into dvd burning. Learned as much as I could about CD Burning with the new system, as I had Roxio 5 & 6 for several years and it was very much part of my life computeing and being a music lover.
I was able to make a Christmas Music DVD to play on yee'ole home theatre sytem in suround sound. It was time consumeing but really looked and sounded good.
I wanted to do a holiday DVD Slideshow with pictures of my little 23 month old with MP3s from my hard drive. I put on about 60 jpegs and 2 mp3s was able to preview the very awsome looking presentation. I used fades & pans & zooms...really looked cool. I went to burn. Same as you. 0% for hours...no burn. Try to exit the program..it locks. Ctrl. Alt. Dlt does not release it...everytime I had to REBOOT.
I have a Gig of ram on my machine so far, which should be more than enough for this programs requirements, so says Roxio. It did the same thing with with the Disc Copier program in Video Compilation mode....trying to burn .wmv & .mov video files to put on DVD to watch on the tube....( have had no problems burning dupes of CDs though.)
I may reinstall my Roxio 9. I am rather frustrated too. Even tryed updating drivers for video cards and my two disc drives...nothing newer for any of them. Nothing has fixed the problem. I also have a problem with my MS Outlook freezing up after startup of the program...a couple of other posters have had this problem too after installing Roxio 9.
Hope you find / found a solution. Sorry not much help in the end.
