Error Code 80040227 received when burning DVD



When I try to burn any video file to a DVD, I get the error message "80040227 error while encoding movie". I have Easy Media Creator 8, 8.05 (Build 805B30B), and am using MYDVD to try to burn the disk. I have reviewed the discussion groups and spoke with tech support at Roxio, and tried all of the fixes I could find.

Things I have tried:

1) I downloaded the PXengine and GDI plus files from Roxio and installed them, this is what the Roxio tech support person told me to do to fix the problem

2) Checked the computer drivers are updated

3) Tried creating an image file only (.iso file) - received same error

4) Tried with different video (TIVO, and video from my camcorder) - same problem occurred. Also, I have successfully burned DVD disks using other software and this DVD drive.

5) Reinstalled the EMC8 application.

My system specs are below, any help is appreciated. I also sent in an incident report online to Roxio.

It appears this is down to the onboard graphics chipset on the motherboard - it seems the only real cure is to upgrade the computer with a new graphics card.

It is interesting that there are a number of owners of the HP 061 who have problems. I wonder if there are any that don't when using the on-board chip? Of course, they may not come to these boards. :)

GHD try doing so but first turn off any antivirus and for safety shut off the internet

i had the same error and didi as so and evreting is fine now, and i do so everytime i do a Photo Project that a want to burn, i think the antivirus is taking to much of power to run at the same time as the burning.
