Here is a frustrating problem I am having with Windows DVD Maker that no one can seem to explain. I have a new computer, less than a month old, running Windows 7. I have been trying to burn some home movie clips on to DVDs for various friends and family.
I completed 3 or 4 DVDs successfully. All of a sudden, during the burning process, I get to a point about 0.3 to 0.4 percent encoded when I get an error message that the DVD cannot be made due to an unspecified error. Every fresh, new, out of the package disk
I try to use ends up with the same message. The clips haven't changed, the filters haven't changed, the settings haven't changed, I've just done a few succesfully with no problem, now all of a sudden it can't burn any more discs. What happened? What do I
need to do to fix it?
