Windows DVD Maker encoding error

Hi all,
I'm trying burn some files but the encoding always stops at 0.6% before generating the following error.

[Window Title]
Windows DVD Maker

[Main Instruction]
Cannot create the DVD

[Content]
An error occurred when burning the DVD.


[OK]

A bit more background info:

- I'm running Windows 7 Pro
- I haven't got any other burning software (such as Nero) installed
- There are 11 .vob files to burn
- That's 106 of 150 minutes
- There aren't any effects or customised menu

Has anyone got any suggestions? Searching on the internet shows that there are people who are experiencing the same problems, but I'm not even sure what codecs are and how to check whether I have the right ones.

Thanks in advance!

Hello southcecile,

Thank you for visiting the Microsoft Answers Site.

The .vob file format is not a Windows DVD maker supported file format. You may try converting the video files to a supported file format and then try burning the DVD again. Windows DVD Maker supports digital video files in WMV or AVI container format.

I hope this information is helpful.

Thank you,
