    Only movies? What about a data dvd, does that work? Clean the lens on the dvd burner with alcohol on a q-tip and try burning at a slower speed.

    NEVER burn ANYTHING at "maximum" speeds unless you have a beast of a computer system and even then you should always close all open programs, burn the disc at half your burner's "max" speed, and do a data verify.

    Also, Nero is not the best software to use when converting video files to DVD, I suggest using VSO ConvertXtoDVD.
