My problem is very similar. Please let me know if I should start a new thread. Media Center will no longer burn recorded TV shows to DVD. I have been recording cartoon shows off and on for my godson to watch. This week, I started getting errors and every attempt aborts. At first I thought maybe I had some bad DVD+R media, but I am able to burn other things to DVD outside of Media Center.
Here is what happens: In Media Center, I select the episodes of recorded TV shows that I want to burn to DVD. The process starts normally, indicating that it may take "several hours" to finish. After about an hour or so, at 28% completion, I hear the DVD burner spin up like it is going to start recording. After a few seconds, it stops and ejects the blank disk. In Media Center, an error comes up saying: "BURN FAILURE, An error has occurred in burning the CD/DVD." There is no further info nor error codes.
I am running Vista Ultimate 64-bit on an HP system with a quad core processor. Last week I upgraded my storage as follows: The system has a 500GB RAID1 mirrored disk that contains the C: and D: drives. (D: is the HP system restore disk.) My C: drive was getting pretty full, so I added a pair of 1.5TB drives, also as a RAID1 mirrored pair, designated as drive G:.
I moved my data files off the C: drive to the G: drive. This included moving the folders like Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc. to the G: drive. I also moved the Recorded TV folder to the G: drive. In Media Center, I told it to save recorded TV programs to this location, and I also added this folder to the list of monitored folders, and removed the drive C: folders from the list.
Everything worked great. Media Center records TV programs and plays them back just fine. But when it comes to burning a program to DVD, I get the same failure every time. I'm guessing there must be some pointer somewhere that I neglected to reroute to the G: drive, but I can't find it.
Can you give me any clues where to start looking for this problem?
