If yes, then I would check with the DVD burner software and see if they have a more recent update.
If that doesn't help, try ashampoo_burning_studio_6_free_675_4280.exe from downloadcom. Ashampoo Burning Studio Free - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET Download.com
It has been working great on my PC with Vista updates installed.
