Problems Burning DVD Video

Plenty of Available Hard Drive Space
No video card


I have been trying to burn a video DVD unsuccesfully. I am not doing any
video editing just taking video files from my Canon video recorder and
simply trying to create a dvd video disk.

Each time I try to do this it seems to be running for quite a long time with
alot of hard drive activity. Probably runs for 1-2 hours showing progress
along the way but in the end I simply get a failure to write error with no
additional information.

I can create DVD's with just data files on it so it seems the burner is not
completely fried. It also burns CD's no problem. The DVD burner simply
refuses to create DVD video (maybe the processor is not enough??)

Originally thought the problem might be due to insuffient memory so I
recently upgraded from 1 to 3 GB but still getting the same error/problem.

I have tried 3 different burning programs all with the same result
(Imagemixer3 [came with Canon camcorder], Windows Movie Maker, Roxio MyDVD
LE).

Can anyone recommend where / what I might explore next to get this problem
resolved and/or be able to tell if I simply need a new DVD burner?

Thanks in advance your your help.

XP does not natively burn DVD`s ; you need to use 3rd party burners .
As such : CDBurnerXP (free ) .
