Try with a Linux LiveCD.
If it works fine, then it's a Windows problem.

Hanging should be just momentary.
If more than that you may have a problem.
Test the memory with memtest86+.
Tell us about your power supply.

i also had this problem..During our burning with SONY DRU-870s (sata) make me frustrated with over 14DVD Blank copy fail to burn..

If i use max speed writing in 16x make my computer become better hangs and at the last it was failure. I try 8x speed, but my computer also hang and done our burning at 40minute in 4.4GB size onto disk. That is so long time if compare using another drive device.

I has burn using Nero 8 and also DeepBurner, unfortunately the result also same.

I`m not sure if my device is weakness using Windows XP 64bit.
