You have to make sure that the DVD drive is also Vista compliant. m 0 l 4Ryan6 April 10, 2009 1:02:00 PM I would highly suspect a bad DVDRW, if all your burning programs stop at the same point, but since it works in XP, have you checked for a firmware update for it? How is the DVDRW connected IDE or SATA? How much system memory are you running? Do you really need the DVDROM drive? Are you OCing the machine? Listing your specs would help, helping you? m 0 l Related resources can i burn windows 7 to a dvd+r disc and then boot it up to a new computer or will i need a cd rom? - Forum New Built System Locking Up During Boot and Restart - Forum DVD locks up system..Both Desktop and Laptop - Forum Playing DVD's Lock up my system - Forum System locking up, nor bsod - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Even if you burn at slower burn speeds does it still quit? UDMA is active for the drive right? What brand media are you writing? Have you looked at the Samsung burn report, probably on the C:\ drive somewhere and see what errors are listed? m 0 l vampirev April 13, 2009 8:54:36 PM slowest speed possible, still locks up. tried a few brands, again works fine wth xp. UDMA should be on, I havent disabled it. cant find a log m 0 l vampirev April 18, 2009 5:13:43 AM update! seems to burn normal cd's without a problem, even at high speed. just doesnt like dvds. m 0 l vampirev May 4, 2009 8:25:05 PM anyone have any further suggestions? this is driving me nuts m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
