Hi retaxen. My apologies: I meant Movie Maker not Media Maker.
I had already read the article you refer to. There should be no problem with file type
incompatibility I am using.
I have a Sony DV tape in a Sony Camcorder and I imported the
contents into Movie Maker using “Import from Digital Video Camera” using the

using good quality DVDs (Phillips DVD+R, 4.7 Gb).
As noted, I have tried a variety of solutions: different burn speeds; fiddling around with
different compatibility options, as per the advice in other threads; closing all other applications; checking drivers; but all to
no avail. The DVD drive reads perfectly
well all types of DVDs/CDs, and I am able to burn using it with Roxio, Media
Player, Creative Labs MediaSource. It’s
only DVD Maker which causes the trouble. And yet, as I said previously, it works OK when I use a DVD +RW. It's only when I use a DVD+R that the problem occurs, which strikes me as very odd indeed.
Having given up on DVD Maker, the solution I plan to is to upgrade
my present (very limited) Roxio 9LE to the full blown version, Roxio 10.
