Thanks for taking an interest in my computer problem. Still haven't got it solved! You asked what programme I'm using to burn discs. Well I'm using Roxio 3.3.0 and the latest version of Windows Media Player plus Windows Vista.

Good luck! Am looking forward to your reply.

Your computer sounds like it is loaded with "junk"
Lets start by doing a disc cleaning, then a defrag of the hard drive, and then get rid of unwanted pictures, programs, etc.that you never use anymore from your computer.
Last resort will be a System Restore.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1...Disc cleaning...Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> Disc Cleanup
2. Defrag the Hard Drive...Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Defragmenter.
3...Delete any unused programs,files,pictures...etc.
4. Final resort: System Restore...this will restore your computer to a time when it was operating good, you have to pick the date when it was running good....Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
After you have completed the above your computer should run faster.
Please take time to rate me
Check for virus as they are one of the causes to make the computer run slow.
Along with that clean your disc of unwanted files, temporary internet files, cookies and unwanted/idle programms.
Also de-fragment the disc.
Hi, If the disc is not full yet ,try to record something else onto the same disc (even a minute ) and try to re-finalize it. If it does not work take the disc put it on the laptop DVD reader to see thru Hope will solve the problem.. Thanks in advance for rating me.. Regards
Thanks for the response.
I've solved the problem.
I was trying to download a programme that was too big from the hard drive to the disc.Once I inserted a divide in the progeamme everything worked Ok,
Just to clarify - when you say try to finalize the disc on the DVD recorder, do you mean the DVD camcorder i.e. the VDR D100? if not and you mean an actual DVD recorder then this is where your problem lies, as the disc can only be finalized in the VDR D100 unit itself. this could be the reason behind the poor quality when you watch the clip using windows media player.
If i've got the above wrong, and you were talking about finalization problems on the unit itself all along then the following might help: how full is the disc you are finalizing? if it is pretty full then delete one or two unwanted clips and try finalizing again (this worked for me when i had this problem).
if the disc is not really full then it gets trickier. let me know if it works
unstalled the programme and re-installed it, the boys who were trying to install it didn't re-start the computer and also they were trying to read the disc using the dvd drive, instead they should have put the dvd in thedvd reader draw and then selected E to give them the handycam drive which then worked perfectly. It didn't ask for the disc to be finalized either.
Hey Jim - what program are you using to burn your disks? There is an option depending on how your burning them that you can check that allows you to add more data,files,etc. after each burn. Let me know which program you're using and which ones you have and I'll tell you how to do it. Thanks.
These are two different problems...
1. most likely you have loaded too many programmes in the startup...uninstall the unwanted programmes...and clean the registry by registry cleaner.... clean your c drive or the drive in which OS is loaded by system tool...disc cleanup (in accessories)
2. increase your RAM if you still want to use all the programmes you have loaded.
3. Use a cd rom cleaner disc to see it the rom stars reading...or else you will have to replace the CD Rom
Should simply uninstall using your creative installation disc or remove it through Control Panel> Add/Remove Programmes.
Or use this programme to remove unwanted programmes and allsorts of rubbish (it's free) http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
