Windows 7: DVD Burner suddenly acting up

DVD Burner suddenly acting up

Have been using my Windows DVD burner all day. It's been working great, as usual.
Have been burning the same files in the same way for about a year. Never a problem.

Nothing fancy, just .mpg files of a vintage TV show to DVD.
Right in middle of doing a bunch today it started freezing at encoding.
Shut down, started up several times. No luck.

Will start....sometimes get to 7% then go back to 1% and freeze there.

Any ideas?

I need to get 14 DVD's burned and in the mail in the next few days.
Christmas presents for some old cowboy to send to his relatives in Europe.

thanks anybody,

Sorry to say it is probably on the way out and you'll have to replace it.

24 X DVD Burner
I was shopping for a new burner, when I noticed that LG has a model that is supposed to write at 24X. As far as I know, there is no media available that there? If not, what is the point in these faster drives?

Windows 7 suddenly acting "weird"
Today, 7/26, I tried starting up my laptop with an installation of Windows 7 RC1 64-bit. Upon reaching the log-in screen, I entered my password, and I got the "welcome" and the spinning blue wheel. I noticed that it took a surprisingly long time (almost 1 minute) to get past this stage, as opposed...
