Is it lack of memory or impatientence?



Hi, guys.

I've narrowed down possiblities, but still have burning issue. I produce slide show in videowave, then try to burn in MYDVD. Small files (30 pictures), no music burns ok. Large dvd encodes fine, but seems to freeze up at 97% when completing dvd burn. Drive is also much louder at this point. If I try to stop program, it will not shut down. I've come to the conclusion that either (a) I don't have enough memory for large files or (B) I'm too impatient and too quick to try to close program. DVD is one menu with 2 slideshows: 2.8 mb and 1.4 mb. How long is reasonable for this size to burn? I get nervous about pc because the drive is so much louder than when burning smaller dvd. My specs are below. Dell just put in a new hard drive, and I've checked for all updates and/or drivers. Dell tech says I don't need a larger video card for the things I do, but not sure if I trust his advice. Thanks for any help you can give.

Thanks to all of you who responded to this and others I posted. Part of my problem turned out to be my pc.Dell has now replaced hard drive, ISO board (whatever that is?), and a couple of other things. I still have the Hypermemory issue, which I plan to resolve as soon as the holidays are over. For now, the "work-around" that a couple of you gave me to save to ISO and then copy/convert has worked! I always make a dvd of family pictures for the past year to show during Christmas gathering. So you guys saved the day for me. My whole family sends thanks.

(gi7omy, sorry to have repeated my questions. Appreciate your patience. Some of us Texas girls can be just a tiny bit stubborn! )

Happy holidays wherever you are celebrating.
