Thanks for all your help and putting up with my moods! I have burned both parts of the movie and am even working on the third movie as I type. Only 55 more to go! I still can't - or don't know how to - accelerate my hardware anymore than it is. The slider is all the way to full, but it's extremely slow going. It's going about 1x - so about the time I could watch the movie is how long it takes to burn. Does that seem right to you? My burner is slow - I think it's 4x, but I'm not getting that speed.

Has it mentioned DMA being enabled?
Did you get the same result with convert2dvd
Use rewriteable discs to test it as the trial watermarks the output but it will check if it is the burner or Nero

What will this program do? How will it increase the speed? Will it increase the speed at which they are burned? All the movies I have are already on my computer in *.avi format. I guess I've spent so much time on burning that if I download this program and I like it, I may be tempted to buy it. On the other hand, I just looked at the prices and they're pretty steep. I paid $80 for Nero, that's about 160 pounds. I don't think I'll be paying another $70 for this little program.
All of this burning has taken me several hours to do. I've spent one day just burning 1 movie. Yes, 1 movie. Okay, so I've been doing other things, but it is so slow going. One of my movies stopped burning in the middle, as the progress bar stopped moving, but the time elapsed kept going. I think it did that for about an hour. Then, when I completely erased the rewriteable disk, it took 28 minutes to do that! I'm starting to feel like this is an enormous undertaking. It's a good thing I'm on vacation. I just wouldn't have this kind of time, if I were working.
I realize I can try the software if I want, but then it will put a watermark on my movie, and I'll have to erase it (28 minutes, remember?) I'm just trying to save money. There has to be an easier way. I seem to remember burning DVDs in the past and it was much much faster. So, I don't know what's wrong. It seems like the movies just jumped from scene to scene.
I just noticed something: I bought 25 DVDs RW for $18. The speed is 4x, could that be why this is so slow? I think my DVD burner can only burn 4x. Does this mean 4 x regular speed?

Trying the other programme will just check whether it is Nero or the PC governing the speed, there won't be a need to buy it
When 80 USD is worth 160 GBP I will move there

You're right I could try the program to see if it's Nero or my computer. My guess: my computer. It could be Nero, but then why did I buy it, if it was so freakin slow? Humor me, I'm thinking out loud here. I know I downloaded the trial version before I bought it and I liked it. I also know that before I bought Nero, I used Roxio, but I think Roxio only could burn CDs, not DVDs. I seem to remember that I had to buy a program that would burn DVDs. I guess if I really want to find out, I could try that program. What can I do if it is my computer? Throwing it away is not an option. I just ordered a new 250 GB HD.

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete
Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot
If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD
Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.
Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up
Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up
Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Okay I did everything you recommended, except without the XP disk. I don't have one. I already had TuneUp Utilities, which I just love, and so I actually did that part first before I got your post. I also ran it again at the end of everything. It fixed over 1000 errors!
Does not having an XP disk mean that my computer will not be fixed?

As far as getting the XP CD, I'll ask around...The people that I know who are geeks, tend to have better stuff than I do. One guy has several technical toys, iPods and all kinds of other stuff for recording live music with high quality. I don't even know what some of the stuff he has is...He may have an old copy of XP. I'll bet he's already running Vista.

You could set one just as you turn in for the night and at least that's one done for breakfast

So, this is what I've done: 1) I restarted my computer. 2) I removed and reloaded the newest Nero (the 7.5). 3) I deleted a few of the suspicious MKV converter apps. And, still I keep getting hung up while trying to burn. I know that some of the files prompted me to select file extensions. One even claimed that several file types were broken. It wouldn't work if I left the broken files intact. It kept prompting me to remove Nero files, but I didn't. I removed some of the other files that this app claimed were broken.
Is there any way you can help me to reset Nero? I thought the reloading would certainly do it, but now I don't know what's wrong, unless it's those [bleep] apps that did something. I'm certain I didn't used to see the MKV logo in the taskbar, I just saw that FFD decoder, but now I see both. As soon as I manage to make Nero quit, the MKV and FFD logos disappear from the taskbar when I mouse over them.
I've thought about removing the MKV apps, but then I'm not sure that my files will still work.
