Hp pavilion slimline s5-1204 : dvd burn, skips durring playback

Windows 7, Home Premium - SP1, 4 gb memory, 64 bit OS I have been burning DVD+R's with Nero 10 and Windows DVD maker for the the last year, no problem. The last two months it burns with no errors but skips really bad 75% into the DVD durring playback. Both Windows and Nero, converting AVI to VOB or straight DVD files have same issue. My best geuss is a dirty burner or ram? 4 gigs should be plenty. Could DVD+R be the wrong type of DVD? the peculiar thing is the first 2/3's plays perfect...

Leave the machine alone when burning, If you access it during the burn the CPU will spike and show up on the DVD as a pause.

    Hmm, I tried that. Maybe there is something kicking on and running in the background? The strange thing is it only happens in the last 1/4 of the DVD, and becomes unwatchable. (thanks for the reply ;)

    Blew it out, works fine. Must have been a dust bunny when the laser got to a certan point. I have torn apart dozens of DVD burners and fixed them, but this one seemed to new to be bad, learned my lesson. Never to new to get clogged ;) I also ended "Windows Manager..." Something like that. It was taking 40% of ram.

I have a HP DVD 640c and the problem I am having is the bay door will eject and if freezes up the CPU will trying to open... It worked fine up till about 2weeks ago... limited usage... not that old either... HELP or buy new...?

SOURCE: Hi : I have a HP

Greetings,
Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com.
I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond.
Take Care,
-WN

SOURCE: Windows movie maker will not burn to DVD. Says to

As you may be aware, Movie Maker doesn't natively burn DVDs. Or Video CDs (VCDs), which are playable by any DVD Players, but are of significantly lower quality than DVD.
What do you need to into DVD? How about MyDVD is the easiest and direct route, requiring little or no format conversion.

SOURCE: windows 7 will burn me a backup and rescue but

Windows 7 will not open files or anything else that you have backed up. The backup is to RESTORE files and programs that have gotten damaged due to a hard drive crash. You want to save things to a cd/dvd just use file copy not backup. Like i said backup is NOT for file storage. Hope this helps
