It Sounds like you need a CODEC, to DECode the movie, so that it will burn it. Try this: goto download the decrypter. Install it, and you should be able to burn most, if not all the newer DVD's.
Let me know if this does not work for you. If that happens, let me know what version of Windows you are using

No, it will only burn CD's. You need a DVD-RW/DVD-R burner.

Trying to burn music and video.prgram tells me

Use Ctrl-Alt-Del and use 'Task Manager': - Under the 'Applications' tab, you will find all the 'application' that are runnning. - Under the 'Processes' tab, you will find any processes that is running and if you sort the 'CPU' column by clicking on it, it will show any processes that is grabbing your computer resources.
In your case, I would suspect that you have 'AUTOPLAY' enabled and each time you insert a Music or DVD movies, it is trying to run a program like Media Player or DIVX player: if prompted, just tell your machine to do nothing or go into Windows Explorer.
Hope it helps.

Pc freezes when I click open on my nec nr 7900a cd-rw. dell pc, software windown xp,

this is most likely an interface issue either on the motherboard or drive....could be software but dvd drives don't last forever. when booting press delete and let it go into bios setup. You don't need to change anything in bios, just try opening the drive. If it opens without delay remove any disc. Reboot PC and see if the drive behaves, If it's still being awkward, with the PC unplugged open up the PC and remove the drives data cable. Start PC, close down PC. Reconnect drive (use a different IDE /SATA connection if possible) Try DVD drive again. If the fault still persists, It's most likely the drive. Get a new one they are really cheap.

Write to CD

This is common. It usually means the laser diode is too weak to burn the layer on the disc, or the lens has lost it's clarity. This means the optical pickup assembly requires replacement. Probably time to replace the drive.

Wont recognize burned disks

This does sound like a defective drive, most likely a laser / reader issue, because the refractive properties of the CDR is different from a "pressed" disk it looks like thia failed TOC seek issue, the head starts at the center of the disk and reads outwards, the click noise is most likeley the head reaching the terminus (the outer limit of the motorised movement), the drive then unable to find the TOC gives up and decides the disk is unreadable. if this drive is within the manufacturer's Warrantee period I would reccommend sending it back.
