Can not create a DVD using Roxio Creator 9. Don't know how troubleshoot....HELP!!!

I have no idea why I can't burn a DVD using my Dell and Roxio Media Creator 9.  I open  My DVD and add a movire (WMV File) and hit burn everything seems to do what you would expect but then it just sits there and does nothing. I am stumpted as to how to troubleshoot the darn thing. Am wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I am using a Dell Latitude D820 plenty of ram and CPU ...writer is a standard Dell dvd R/W...Sony DW-Q58A.. Looking at task manager processes I am using 50% of the CPU with a process  called VideoWave9.exe.  There is no liht on the drive itself showing. To be truthfulI believe this DVD has worked before....does cd 'swith no problem. And I can copy to the disk like normal. I need to make a DVD that can be used in a normal player.....Any help would be appreciated and I am odffering max points.

Could be the format your using, WMV can only be burnt as a data disc you can't actually convert it to a dvd format if that's what your burning as.
You will need to reconvert it to mpeg for dvd.
You can use Super to re-convert it.

Open Super in the first panel put mpeg1 or 2 then output etc all will change the settings f to suite.
Leave the settings as is.
Drop the WMV on and hit encode. try using copies till you get the hang of it
2 guides here first is a PDF you save.
