    Try using a different burning software. Look at filehippo.com, do a search
    form there type CDBrunerxp. Download and install. Try to create and burn your
    cd/dvd's again. I think you will like it, and it is really easy to use. Good
    Luck!

    Re: Burner Problem

    This can occur when your computer incorrectly detects the drive as a non-recordable
    device.

    Step 1: Back up the registry
    To back up the registry so that you can restore it if you have problems later,
    follow these steps:
    1.. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2.. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
    3.. Click to open the following folder:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD
    Burning\Drives
    4.. On the File menu, click Export.
    5.. In the File name box, type backup of drives key, note the location where you
    are saving the file, and then click Save.

    Note If you have problems later, you can restore this registry subkey by
    double-clicking the backup of drives key.reg file that you saved.
    Step 2: Edit the drive type value of the volume folder
    To edit the drive type so that Windows recognizes the drive as recordable, follow
    these steps:
    1.. In the navigation pane of the Registry Editor window, click the Volume{GUID}
    folder under Drives, where GUID is a 32-character identifier.

    Note If your computer has more than one CD drive, an additional Volume{GUID}
    folder is listed for each drive.
    2.. In the right side of the Registry Editor window, double-click Drive Type.
    3.. In the Value data box, type 1 if the drive is a CD-R drive or 2 if it is a
    CD-RW drive.
    4.. Click OK, and then close Registry Editor.
    Step 3: Verify that Windows recognizes the drive as a recordable device
    To see whether Windows recognizes the drive as a recordable device now, follow these
    steps:
    1.. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
    2.. Under Devices with Removable Storage, right-click the CD-R drive or CD-RW
    drive, and then click Properties.
    3.. If the Recording tab is displayed, Windows recognizes the drive as a
    recordable device.
    4.. Click Cancel

    Did you hear of the Total Video2Dvd?I think it is your best
    choice.it's safe and works pretty well.It is the most powerful
    conversion tool that it can “Auto Convert and Burn MKV, Blu-ray TS,
    M2TS, AVCHD MTS, HDV1080i, Divx, Rm, Wmv, Avi to DVD Video Disc
    directly.”It is very easy to use, and offer the better quality,.You
    can try it.

    Re: Burner Problem

    tyanak,
    Here is a MS link to the problem on XP with recognizing optical drives. It
    appears that Peter has quoted most of it for your problem on Vista even
    though you have no problem recognizing the drives since the writing starts
    but does not complete on Vista. So his advice does not appear to apply to
    your problem and possibly "THE C's" suggestion is a good one.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316529

    Also we do not really know if "The C" is or is not a MVP since MVPs can
    elect that they not be listed in the MVP listing available to the public,

    Take it from me and others that ( The C ) he is not an MVP. And oh yes. My advice
    was good since the OP posted the following ( "it doesn't have any problems until it
    finalizes the cd"). The MS KB you posted does not apply since the OP can start the
    burn without issues and go through to the finish but has problems finalizing it.
    Read the post correctly next time out.

    BTW the advice that "The C " gave to use another burner software is not the answer
    here

    Re: Burner Problem

    What I do not understand is how come the burning even started if the cause
    of not being able to finalize is as you posted:

    "This can occur when your computer incorrectly detects the drive as a
    non-recordable
    device.."

    Re: Burner Problem

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys! I did the step 3 of Peter's suggestion and my computer does recognize my dvd-rom as a recording device...I can't say that my dvd-rom is damaged since it still can read any disc I play on it. -_-
