Error While Burning Image



I have upgraded to Windows Vista Home and have the multimedia options installed. I am trying to create a home movie and then burn to DVD. I can create the movie with no problem. It happens when I try burning the DVD. It doesn't work. So, someone suggested getting a third party software. I chose the Roxio MyDVD 9. I can create the movie, no problem. I go to burn and get the following error:


Failed to start the image writing operation. Error while burning image. 80004003 Error while aborting.


I've checked the firmware for the DVD (LiteOn DVD-RW - LH-18A1P) and checked my video card driver (Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS). All say they are up to date. Any suggestions? I was able to make 1 and only 1 DVD when I first got my computer and using Vista.


Thanks in advance.

Where did you check the driver? If you checked with the device manager, then the drivers probably aren't up to date. The Device Manager is wrong a very large portion of the time. Check on the NVidia website.


Also, try a different type of DVD (Verbatim is recommended).


Search the forums for "80004003".

So you tried creating a movie in Vista first and it didn't work.How did you do this?

Then you tried Roxio and it didn't work either.Roxio's Knowledge Base for that error mostly points to a firmware update which you say is up to date.The latest firmware file you can get from their site is DR18GL0F which I think is actually firmware version GL0F.Is that what you have?

Did your computer have other burning software on it before you added EMC9?If so uninstall it.

Another thing to try is instead of burning to a disc try making an image and then using Disc Copier to make the DVD.
