Could someone help me with a DVD burning issue that MAY be video card related?

    First off, let me say, I already have gone on the DVD burning
    newsgroups and am exploring here at their recommendations.

    Could someone tell me what settings I can try (in control panel)
    to help determine if my video card is interfering with burning
    DVD's (movies)

    I have had almost 100 pct success burning dvd's the past year and
    a half, and now all of a sudden I am having an almost 100 pct failure

    I use/and always have, good media (Verbatim 8x) ....

    No matter what I burn with, Nero, DVD Shrink, etc. they always report
    SUCCESS .... but when played on my stand alone dvd player they are
    now always skipping/pausing/jerking, etc. randomly thruout the movie.

    This problem started after I installed a program call Video Studio,
    and set my resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768 to accomadate it.
    It wont run, or even load at 800x6000. (first clue: Resolution change)

    I have since reformatted my hd, reinstalled everything but Video Studio,
    but kept the higher resolution, and still I am burning coaster after
    (so Video Studio is off the hook) so now the only difference in my configs
    from PERFECT burns to ZERO success, is the resolution difference
    ..... I took the same file(s) that made 6 coasters today, downstairs to my
    computer and tried burning it on there, and whammo ... a perfect copy. (and
    more after that) I dont know if it was the different video card, or the fact
    hers is running 800x600.

    This computer (the one with the bad burns) has a Radeon X800 pro, now
    running the cats 5.8 ... my wifes machine has a Radeon 9700.

    The fact that Video Studio 9 has been ruled out, and the mention of the
    change, lead the DVD Burning group to suggest it absolutely has to be a
    driver (or the card itself). But, I dont know cause i am having no video
    issues or errors.

    When I first noticed it, I was using the cat 5.7 I beleive, and after their
    a check of my event viewer show SEVERAL errors listing ATIMAG as the source,
    and "Invalid Parameters" as the Type of error (I guess) ... So I thought I
    was onto
    something ... shortly thereafter, the cat 5.8's came out, I installed them,
    and now
    no more errors appeared in the event viewer, yet as mentioned above, I
    still get
    jerking/pausing/skipping on every dvd this machine burns.

    This machine is showing NO video related errors, no video type problems (tho
    I must admit
    UT2004 is the only game I have ever had installed on here or play really) My
    scores in 3dMark2005, AguaMark, and Code Creatures (and even pc pitstop)
    always registered very good. (upper 10 pct I would guess) ...

    So I am at a total loss. I have no idea what to try setting all those
    settings in the control panel
    to. I am running at defaults (except I have VPU Recover turned off) ....

    Does ANYONE have any ideas?

  2. What happens with DVD burning if you change the resolution back to 800x600?

  3. Have you tried a different DVD burner in the computer, like the one in
    your wife's computer, to make sure that the burner itself isn't creating
    marginal burns? Also, you might want to run a program like MotherBoard
    Monitor 5 to monitor your voltages while burning a DVD to make sure that
    the power isn't dropping in the middle of a burn and creating a problem.
