Any clues might help us to help you.

What O/S? What DVD Writer? What Program are you using to burn to DVD? What are you trying to burn to DVD? ect......????

Win XP SP2 with updates Pentium 4 , 3GHtz.Gigabites of spaces on HD.
Three Burners or more tried. Nero 6 Roxi's Creative 8 , Cyberlink Power Director.
The Drive AOpen Combination 16x etc
It plays both CDs & DVDs but as soon as I click Burn
the computer shuts down and the restarts. I disabled the restart so now it shuts down no error message so I just restart. All else seems to work fine. Could the prob be a corrupted Driver? If I need to be told exactly what to do. Thankyou for your interest

It may be that there is a conflict with the burning S/W. I don't think Nero and Roxi like each other on the same PC, you may need to delete one of them. Check what others think before doing so. David

Thanks for your input David4637. I 'm pretty sure I had both Roxio & Nero loaded before things went awry although I'm not sure about Cyberlink Director * Producer.

Does anyone know is there a common file in windows xp that all DVD Burners use ? If so I would like to try and replace, but how I'm not sure!

if its a disc image you are trying to burn you could try Imgburn Freebie that has no conflict with Nero and a better burner

Thanks eedcam I'm sure there is something fundemental like a damaged file I have tried different Burners and even wrote to a 700m Disc in Video which plays via my DVD player connected to the TV But when I tried to Burn DVD Pal recorded file to
a DVD disc the computer just shut down immediately on my click to Burn

Shirgor obvious question but apart from software you do have a dvd writer? writing to a Cd that plays video on your player aint the same as a dvd

Microsoft burns disks (in WMPlayer) using the ex-Adaptec software - which is now Roxio.
There were many problems over the last year or so and Roxio issued a fix but, I'm not so sure it's directly related to your problem, as it caused problems when trying to play cd's, not just burning.
Not sure this is a help or further confusion..LOL

Does it make any difference whether DVD+/-R or RW?
