I have nero and a matshita dvd- drive. It burns fine apart from when i try to burn this particular homemade movie and then i get the error "could not perform end of Disc at once" this error comes right at the end of the burning process and basically i think it just doesnt finalise the dvd, but this means that i cannot play it on my dvd player.

It is odd as it only happens on this particular movie i am trying to burn.. any help would be appreciated.

when you burn the dvd, you can specify options

Disc at once
Disc at once/96
track at once

try switching which one you are using.

how big is the movie ?

is there anything that makes it unusual ?

I have authored the movie so it is in AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders, the whole thing is about 4.2 gig. If i change it from disc at once will that be ok??

hmm.  Hang on for a second.  Do you have anything in the AUDIO_TS directory ?  Normally everything just goes in VIDEO_TS.  Let's take a step back - where is this movie coming from ?

it may not let you do track at once.  Try DAO/96.

Also for some reason it will not let me change the write method of "disk at once" in nero, it is all greyed out when i choose dvd-video.

I think you should try the upgrades, both of them.  I've looked around and there doesn't seem to be a commonality amongst other people who've had this problem.

It just seems odd that its only happening on this one film... and the simulations in nero work ok... very odd.

you won't be able to.  I'd get the newest nero first, and see if it helps.

Usually if the simulation works, the burning works.  It probably was the media.

Just a comment.  I get that error only occasionally using Nero Express 6.6 but find that the disk burned just fine and is fully playable.  I did notice that I had not checked "Enable DVD overburning" in the Configuration preferences.  Will be a while before I find out if that helped as this error is an occasional one.
