This software is a total PIA. It doesn't come with all the required decoders so I had to go get my old DVD writing software that had them an install it to get the decoders in place (fresh build of XP). Now my problem is after 4hrs of 'transcoding' which is stupidly long amount of time for the shows I'm burning (I've edited many DVD's before) the program 'cancels' on me and crashes. I've tried different disks, firmware upgrades, driver reinstalls . . . I was looking forward to using it to archive off my season finales, but it's not working! I sent in a support Ticket to Sonic so we'll see if they have any advice. BTW it's a Sony DRU500a which is supported.
