Re: DVD writing problem -'HW error, Timeout on logical...
What software are you using to burn and what type of dvd are you trying to burn.(+), (-), or (RW).
Do you have a copy of NERO?
http://www.filehippo.com has NERO (I think) try a different then try a different disk.
Some where it even said to try defragging the hard drive...It wouldn't hurt.
Let me know what happens.

The video in the PVR is not in DVD or Blu ray format. You'll need software to convert the video format on the PVR to DVD first. there are several converters that will do that. Google video to dvd converters.
The error message implies that your DVD is not capable of writing DVD's, particularly DVD+R disks. Recheck the spec's on the drive; it might write to DVD-R disks, or perhaps it only burns CD's and not DVD's at all.
are u copying the disc on the fly i mean directly from dvd rom to dvd rw it sometimes generate this error when reading drive stops giving data due to some error and suddenly bcoz of that the writing drive leavve the session un closed and give an error the solution is first copy ur disc on the hard drive and then copy it on another disc on the fly copying is not safe otherwise also try this
pls try to clean the lens of the drive as follows
due to dusty environment and excessive use lens gets dusty and then have problems in reading or writing dvd 's and cd's
the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens
gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to
clean lcd screens or cotton bud good quality see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got
weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them
everyday for replacements
u can try that software thing as well but i dont think it will solve ur problem
pls try to make a copy of dvd on hard disk folder when in the end it asks where to put the dvd after processing dont put it directly on the dvd first process and put it on hard disk folder and then burn it using any free tools or like nero burning rom or any other dvd burning software it sometimes happen when u try to put the movie directly to dvd during processing avoid this
pls let me know if i can help u more , i will suggest DVD movie Factory for video editing and dvd making it is paid service but it is easy and worth it
