Burning problems in both MyDVD and Music Disk Creator



I am using EMC 9 and it works well except:


1. In both MyDVD and Music Disk Creator, it burns the disk to 98% and stops. This always happens in MyDVD and usually in Music Disk Creator. The burner light stays on and I can't quit the program. Clicking Cancel does not work - it just continues to say "canceling" forever. I have to hard-boot even to eject the disk. (I had exactly the same problem in EMC 8 but was hoping the new version would fix this.)


2. The above does not happen if instead of burning directly to disk, I only burn to an Image file and then copy the image to disk using Disk Copier. This has yielded correct results so far in MyDVD with .iso files. HOWEVER -


3. In Music Disk Creator, no matter what I do (burn directly to disk or burn a .C2D image file first and copy it to disk), I get a strange symptom at the end of the disk when I play it back. For about the last 30 seconds of the last track on the CD, I get either silence or a loud buzz. On playback on my PC, it is continuing to play - the music player software shows not only that the track is counting out to the end, but the "visualizer" shows that there is music playing! - but there is silence or the buzz.

  • This does not depend on the player - I have tried the disks on my PC, two home stereos, and the car stereo, and in all cases it plays fine up to the end of the last track.
  • It is not a problem with the blank disks - I have gotten the same results on numerous ones.
  • It is not a problem with the original track or putting too much on a disk - I have tried deleting the last track or replacing it with something else, and I get the same results. The tracks themselves (usually .wav files) play fine on my PC before burning. Whatever is the last track, this is what happens to it.
  • It is not a problem with the hardware, or at least I don't see how it can be. Everything works fine in other programs, and all my drivers and firmware are up to date.

My system:

  • Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
  • Pentium 4, 2.4 GHz
  • Asus PVP800-VM motherboard, Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller, Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit audio
  • 1.5 GB RAM
  • Running McAfee Virusscan, Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D (all recently run and updated)
  • 90+ GB free on main data disk; 10 GB free on separate partition for Temp files; both defragmented
  • CompUSA/AOpen DVD+/-R DL drive, Dynex and other CD-R's, Fuji and other DVD+R DL DVD's

Any ideas?
