DVDA suddenly hanging up when burning

I have been working with DVDA 5.0 for several months now, without problems. Suddenly 2 days ago it hangs up when burning a finished project. Here's some relevant info - am looking for help pls.

It has successfully burned numerous project, includer larger ones.
The drive works, will burn in other apps.
It gets past render, then just stops about 5 minutes into the burn stage - no message, etc
Have reinstalled, issue remains.
It has been updated with the (b) install, which is the latest I have found. Successfully burned after I installed that update some time back.

I am out of ideas. Help?

Many people use DVD Architect to PREPARE the DVD and some other app to BURN the DVD.

If it worked a couple days ago, I'd consider doing a system restore back to then and see if it starts working again.

Once you have the VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders, you can use any burning app that you have on your computer.
For example, RecordNow, Nero, etc.
I don't know that there's any benefit other than not needing to fire up DVDA but I've always done it this way.

I had this same exact problem DVDA 5 rendered, prepared and burning at about 65% and just freezed there. I try DVDA 4.5 did the same thing. I am wondering is that has anything to do with my Desktop Core i7 920 Window 7 64 bit. First I thought maybe my dual layer DVD writter is bad but I am able to burn anything, just not with DVDA.

What I did is copy the Mpeg2 file and ac3 file and try to burn it on my laptop 32 bit Vista and DVDA finish the DVD fine. Very strange.

Ding Ding Ding Ding!

Windows 7 seems to be a common denominator in Vegas issues lately.

Wouldn't this world be a better place if we could all just go back to XP?

First thing I would try would be to delete the video and audio tracks and to re-render them to a different drive and then try to burn.

Jeff,

I test out your method, render out to a different drive and it works. What's up with DVDA?

It's not DVDA, its either your drive, or the original file was corrupted.

The drive likely has bad sectors. Run disc check or do a full format and your problems should be over. This happens, it's nobody's fault.
