Most burning problems can be related to some/all of following reasons:
A) Use quality media
Use Verbatim +R DL (made in Singapore) or MAM-A +R DL 8x for double layer blank media. Don't use -R DL (useless format).
If you don't know how to obtain media code (MID), you may find the following useful programs:
http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com or http://www.dvdinfopro.com/
If you have ImgBurn installed, it can also provide you with the disc's MID.
Here are 2 good sites, to learn about media quality, and what media id to look for:
B) Burning too fast, may cause playback issues:
If you have cheap media, we will suggest not burning those higher than x2.0
If you use quality media, we will suggest burning at x4.0 max to prevent playback issues.
- Skipping, Freezing etc...
(Please don’t stick labels on your media. It makes DVD disc unstable, and will cause playback issues.)
But keep in mind, if you are going to burn at x8.0, please make sure you have lots of free memory, and use quality media like listed above.
And Stop all background tasks, including Antivirus software, Anti Spyware software (All those little software that you can see are on your system taskbar.)
We don't think anyone will suggest burning higher than x8.0, even if using new 16x media.
We suggest burning at half the speed of the media certified speed:
By the way, Single Layer (4.7GB) write speeds
Dual/Double Layer (8.5GB) write speeds
C) Set target size to 4300 for DVD-5 and 8100 for DVD-9 to avoid further failures towards the end of the movie.
So we don't want to burn that far.
D) DMA stands for Direct Memory Access, a capability in modern computers that allows peripheral devices to send data to the motherboard's memory without intervention from the CPU.
DMA is implemented in computer bus architectures to speed up computer operations and allow multitasking. Normally, the CPU will be fully occupied in any read/write operation; enabling DMA allows reading/writing data in the internal memory, external memory and peripherals without CPU involvement, thus making the processor available for other tasks.
So if you don't enable DMA, the writing speed will be very slow or it will cause burning error.
E) Please always use the latest firmware on your DVD burner.
You can get the firmware of writer: If you bought an OEM burner that came bundled with Dell, Compaq, HP, Gateway, etc, systems then contact that company and ask about firmware updates for your drive or check their respective websites for firmware updates.

F) If your writer is more than 2 years old and burned several discs, we suggest you change one new writer.
G) If you update your hardware recently, such as floppy and disk drive controllers, graphics cards, network cards, sound cards and graphics processing units and have burning problems suddenly, you should change a larger power of your computer.
H) You should set booktype to DVD-ROM when burn DVD+R (Find this in Write setting window of your burning software). Not all DVD burners can do this, so read your manual.
By the way, older DVD Player will prefer DVD-R media.
I) Please always use the latest version of copy/burn software.
The vendor of software always upgrades their software to fix all kinds of problems, including burning issue.
