Have two error messages that are preventing burning / recoding. One is an end of file codec thing and another is something about an invalid Editor. Until such time as they release a patch to deal with this, Real Player is useless. Once that thing starts recoding, then it should continue until complete. I have had one come up with one or the other error messages and then burn eventually. Real Player, in all intents and purposes use Roxio and the reviews for that stuff is not good. I have a an old version of Nero, but will probably get a new version, When I checked, there were NO Real Player updates as I was up to date. I actually went and uninstalled Real Player and reinstalled it as well as what I was trying to burn. The Burner is totally unreliable as it is hit and miss. Having said that Audio CDs seem to go well.
