Stuck At 97% When Creating A Dvd

Question

When creating a DVD, the overall process gets to 97% then stops. I believe this is when the project is supposed to burn to DVD. I get no error messages and nothing ever burns to DVD. I need to reboot my system.

 

I have checked my dvd burner with other programs and the drive works fine. I have burned audio CDs with no issues using Roxio Creator 2012.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Instead of burning directly to DVD, burn first to a folder set or an image file. If they are successful you can then burn those to a DVD. Tis will tell you if there is a problem in encoding or if the problem is with the actual burn.

 

How long in time is the project you are trying to burn to DVD? What quality setting are you using?

Thanks for your reply. I will try to "burn" to a folder set or an image file. I do not think the problem is encoding though. I have used the "covert and copy" process on Creator 12 several times with success, but cannot burn the covered file to DVD.

 

The file that I am trying to create a DVD is an avi file and the file is usally around 1GB in size.

 

My burner used to work with Roxio Creator 12, but not the process always stops at 97% regardless of an avi, mpeg, or wmv.

 

Thanks for any help!!!!

The movie files are usally about 2 hours long and I alwys use the "fit to disc" feature on Creator 2012

 

File size is not important when creating video DVDs, it is the time length of the video that matters and the settings that you use. A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video at Best Quality (HQ). If longer, the video gets compressed and you lose quality. Using "Fit-to-disc" is about the worst quality setting you can use, it gives bad results and all sorts of menu problems when playing. Most of us recommend burning to a folders setor image file and then using VCC to transcode the set or iso file to a DVD. This does a much better job of compressing the video then using "fit to disc" If I had a 2 hour video I would split it over 2 DVDs instead of squeezing it on one DVD and so keep the best quality.

thanks. I am creating an ISO file as I type. I read in other topics that registry cleaners could "mess up" Creator 2012. I use CCleaner quite often to clean the registry.... Could that be the issue????

YES and NO...

 

I do not recall ever hearing of Good Results from using a Reg Cleaner in 30+ years of computing... Plenty of BAD Results though, including one lost HDD of mine :huh:

 

You really don't need one, uninstall it now and see what happens ;)

 

However, many see the hang at 97% and the Folder or ISO File solution that Walt suggested is the only "fix" that works!

 

Those that have been burning DVD Movies for many years never burn directly to disc! One fail and everything is wasted!

It's only uncontrolled use of aggressive registry cleaners that causes problems. I use CCleaner at least once a day, and have always had good results. I don't believe that will have caused your issue.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

 

I was able to create an image file successfully.... but I was unable to burn the iso file to a DVD. The program recognize by DVD drive and started the process, but after 20 plus minutes nothing burned to my DVD.... Frustrating!!!!

 

I have a screenshot of the burning process, but not sure how to post it.

 

Thanks again!!!!

What happens if you shut down or pause your anti-virus. Is it set to scan everything being burned to your hard drive and being burned from your hard drive?

 

How long do you wait after the program gets to 97% and the time you stop it? What brand blank DVDs are you using? Have you tried another brands? Have you tried -R discs?

robrfm I asked three questions you answered one!

 

What is that screen shot supposed to show?

 

What is all that crap running in the systray? How many programs are running in the systray besides Roxio and what are they (your screen shot)?

 

100% battery life does that mean your running the laptop on AC or battery?
