I have a Benq DW-1625 DVD-RW drive that is happy to burn Data DVD's within Vista. However, everytime I try to make a video DVD using Windows DVD Maker something goes wrong. It goes through all the encoding until it reaches 99.0% and the progress box says that it is finishing the disc. Then another dialog box opens up to say that "an error occurred" and that is the end of it. No DVD, a now useless DVD disc, and an hour and a half of my life wasted waiting for the bloody thing to encode.

I have tried several times, each time changing some of the (very meagre) options available in DVD Maker, but always with the same result. I am using Vista build 5384 and any solutions will be great, I am getting so damn frustrated with this thing.

I've been having similar problems, with two completely different DVD writers (one of which is a brand new Lite-On).

I just get an error message when trying to burn anything except DVD-RW discs. However, upon error checking, there are actually disc errors on there making it unable to play. Not exactly a confidence booster, is it

I'm at the point of giving up on it now until a fix has been published. My suspicion is that the software isn't very good at detecting appropriate write speeds and so the writes just fail. It is hard to tell though because I don't know where the message logs for the software are kept (if there are any).

I think I have wasted enough time this week trying to fix it - I think I'll look for an alternative which actually works.

Same problem here using an LG DVD Burner. Using a retail version of Vista Ultimate. Actually, I can't burn data dvds either; however, I can burn data cds with the drive.

Same problem here, but I can make data dvds but not video dvds.
