I am using Verbatim DVD - to record home made movies through Nero Vision essentials four, which has been working fine. Today i tried to burn another disk and it went through ok then the line which says Total progress stopped and wouldn't move. i then got a notice pop up saying:

'Sorry your compilation cannot be written to this kind of disk. Please insert a disk of the correct type, or modify the settings to make them compatible with the correct disk'.

I am very depressed at the moment, I rang up a friend who says I might have a virus, but I always update my free version of AVG when I switch on. I have never had a problem like this before so I wonder if the CD burner has gone wrong (which I hope not) or whether the disks are faulty. i ave tried two and have come up with the smae result. the guy who made me the computer doesn't live in the area anymore, so i am looking for a PC engineer which is like looking for a needle in haystack

Can anyone advise me please? I am not very computer illiterate and have another video to upload of my time in Cornwall. I knew I shouldn't have got up this morning. Many thanks.

I suspect the DVD drive has failed. It could be a software problem of some kind, but I doubt it
I get the impression that you simply want someone to come and fix it?
If so, try PCIQ - they are a national chain of independent repairers (I'm one of them)
raise a job request online at http://www.pciq.com and someone close to you will contact you. Talk to them and see how you feel about what they say. You are under no obligation once contacted
What part of the country are you in?
