Windows 7: Burning problem

Burning problem

I have 2 optical drives
1. LITE-ON's DVD R/RW SOHW-1633S
2. LG's HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H10L

When I try to burn data files to a DVD+R DL, I do get a progress bar & info, but halfway through the 'burn' stops & exits. Nothing gets burned & the disc is still usable. This happens when using either drive.

Wondering if the drives only take certain types of DVD+R DL media. I am using a Memorex disc (don't usually use Memorex, but it's what I have right now) & trying to burn using 7 Pro 64Bit's own burn utility.

Though that is not the problem at the moment. What I'd like to solve is this:
Since the files did not burn, how do I get rid of the small yellow lock that is now showing on them? I now have some info I need to add to a few of these files, but can I w/the lock in place?

Right click the file(s), Take Ownership. It should work now.

Also try opening the drive used to attempt burn, then Delete the files Ready to Burn

I find this utility an excellent burning tool: The Official ImgBurn Website

Agreed. ImgBurn is a excellent free burning app.
Nero also has a free version of thier Nero Express if thats something you'd prefer.
Although, ImgBurn is a bit more flexible and capable of more.

I'm not using any program, just 7's internal utility. I am going to try either
1. ImgBurn
2. Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 Suite
3. Roxio Creator 2011 Pro

I didn't save the files anywhere else, so I don't want to go the deletion route. I'll try the Take Ownership route.

Does ImgBurn burn only images/will it burn normal, everyday files as well? Why is there now a lock on these files anyway?

I think the lock is because ownership changed, somehow. Cut those files and paste somewhere else, then copy back to the original location.
