    I use Movie Maker 6 in Vista Ultimate and love it. I then Publish to DVD
    with no problems. My problem is, when it's done with the first DVD, it asks
    me if I would like to make another copy. If I choose yes, it starts for
    about 30 seconds into it, then gives me the general error that my drive,
    media, or burn speed might have caused it to fail. I burn at Medium speed,
    and it never fails during the first write or copy. If I want another copy,
    and I then have to start from MM and publish again, and wait forever for it
    to encode again. Where is the log stored for DVD Maker, I'm sure that might
    give me some clue to what is exactly causing it? Also it damages my disc, so
    I know it started the write process since my disc are not reusable after the
    error.

    Seems like a very strange problem, anyone have any ideas? Note that this
    question was posed by someone else in Nov 2008 on Technet but I cannot find
    any reference to an answer, so I am trying here as suggested,

    ========================================
    FWIW...slower burn speeds are best.

    I understand that you want to know the cause
    and how to correct it but sometimes that can
    be quite illusive. I do however suspect the issue
    is somehow related to system resources.

    Anyway...here's a possible alternative that may
    be worth a try.

    First...burn your DVD...then download and install
    the freeware ImgBurn. Then create an ISO Image
    of the DVD and then you can burn as many copies
    as you wish.

    John,

    You are right that I'd like to have known what the original issue was, but
    I'm less interested now as this solution is just excellent, worked first
    time, thanks very much for the advice,

    Iain
