I have a Sony DVD camcorder (mini disc) and Sony Vegas Movie Studio 6 software. Since getting a new laptop with Windows 7 I've been having problems with Vegas Movie Studio (I think it may not be fully compatible with Windows 7).....but it does manage
to render my videos to a recognisable format (mpg) so i turned to Windows DVD maker, which looks like a great and simple program to use initially....but like many messages on this forum I too had a problem during the burn process - mine only gets to approx. 4%
and then comes up with an error message (but the error message displays no detail). What can I do? Is there an alternative? Can I burn a mini disc onto a DVD-R for example? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any third party codecs or third party burning software installed, that would be interfering with the burning process. Uninstall the codecs and the third party burning software and try burning. Does that solve the issue?
In addition, I’d suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that fixes the burning issues with DVD Maker:
·Verify that the DVD burner is connected properly to your computer and powered on, and that any necessary software drivers for the DVD burner are installed. You can check your
hardware settings in the Device Manager by doing the following:
1.Open Device Manager by clicking the
Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking
System and Security, and then, under System, clicking
Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2.Click the arrow next to
3.Verify that your CD or DVD burner is listed and installed properly.
·Verify that you're using a new, blank recordable DVD.
·Make sure the video file that you're trying to burn is not corrupted. One quick test is to open the video file in a media player that can play that type of file, and then see if it plays
·Choose a slower burning speed for your DVD burner by doing the following:
1.In Windows DVD Maker, return to the
Add pictures and video to the DVD page, and then click Options.
DVD burner speed list, select Medium or
Slow, and then click OK.
