Burning Problems...Please Help!

Get AnyDVD HD and copy any DVD or Blu-ray disc with ease!

I have been using DVD X Copy Xpress for about 3-4 years. I never had any problems originally. I also purchased DVD Clone2, after I started to have issues after Studio 123 went out of business, and problems occurred. I am running DVD Region +CSS Free also when I run Xpress and Clone. Recently, I have had many problems. I would go through the complete process without errors, but the DVD would freeze up in the middle or end of movie during playback. Also, sometimes the whole movie will copy and burn completely, but when I try to watch the copy, it says nothing is on the DVD. This is really frustrating. I thought maybe it was the media I was using, but I purchased all types and brands of new media (disks) to no avail.

Thinking it must be a software or hardware problem, I purchased DVD neXt copy last week, along with a new external Sony burner that burns all DVD formats, and I still have the same problems. Also, the new software reads and copies the movies really fast, but it takes 2 hours to burn. I contacted their support, but I really do not get any help.

Can someone please give me some ideas? Iíve tried disabling anti-virus, MSN Messenger, etc. I ran a scan disk, disk defragmenter, virus scan, spyware scan, ad-aware, but problems still persists.

The original burner is a Philips DVD+RW. The new external is a Sony DVD+/R, DVD+/RW, DVR, dual layer, dual sided.

I am running Windows XP, service pack 2, Pentium 4, 1.8 GHz, 256 MB RAM.

I appreciate all feedback.

256 ram does not cut it,add 512 more.
check ye ide ata/atapi controllers and see if there are in dma mode..look at the primary and secondary channels.

DVDneXtcopy can conflict with other ripping and burning programs..

lower the speed of the burn,to no more then 4x.

and check your system for spy ware and malware
using spysweeper..or reformat your computer..if i was you i would..
