CDBurnerXP won't burn DVD's

Hi folks,

Having used CDBurnerXP without a problem in the past, I am now having a problem copying files to DVD. I drag the files as normal then click Burn and then have various problems. First I had the blue screen of death, another time the PC froze and I had to turn off the power to shut it down.

My CD/DVD drive appears to be working OK as I can use the Windows XP CD writing wizard to copy back-ups to CD.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

Thanks

Try this one once you uninstall CDBurnerXP, Ashampoo-Burning-Studio-Free

Thanks to both for your responses.

Will let you know what happens.

As you know, Ashampoo Burning Studio Elements is on the January cover disc of PC advisor.

Cheers

Well folks,

I removed CDburnerXP and to check if it was a software issue, I installed Ashampoo Burning Studio Elements from the PC Advisor January cover disc.

Lo, I have now burned a video to a DVD.

So it seems the problem was with CDBurnerXP though it has worked fine in the past.

Many thanks to all for your responses.

Best wishes

Al
