What hardware do you have?
You should use the NLE that best fits your needs, not by definition the one with the most bells and whistles or that has the preference of the reviewer in question. His work flow may differ from yours. Vegas also has a trial version, try it out and see which tool is the best for what YOU want to achieve.
>but why should I stick with Adobe?
Premiere and Vegas are offered at two very different price points, for a reason. That's something to be considered.
If your dvd is crashing there is something wrong with your hardware. Try updating all your drivers and check to see if there is a new firmware update to your dvd burner. I really don't think it is a Premiere thing. I would hate to see you go through the trouble of switching if you really don't need to.
Well there's 55 over messages in this thread indicating people have the same problem.

re: price difference
I think this is why I am even considering changing
the same demonstration gave me a 30-day demo disc, so I plan to test it out on a new project I need to make anyway... but I was wondering if there was a convenient place to compare features? (PLAN B - was to read the subjective opinions of reviewers.)
winxp home build 5.1 2600
dell dimension 3000 desktop
Pentium 4 2.8ghz
syncmaster 913v 19" lcd monitor
onboard GFX card (Intel 82865g) internal 96mb
onboard Soundcard (soundmax)
main drive 320GB
secondary drive 80GB
I'm using an external dvd burner...
Thanks for the feedback and interest in helping.

What I meant was, you get what you pay for.
Although I use PPro, I've tinkered with Vegas (vers 6 7 8) and do think it has its place. It fills a gap for those that don't need the functionality of an application suite like CS3... mainly for people that spend most of their time inside the NLE.
The new titler and multicam in Vegas 8 are pretty cool. Overall it's a really stable application and sports an intuitive design. I'm not sure a feature by feature comparison would be fair as both do a lot of the same things but go about it differently.
Sony does seem to keep a close ear to their user base though. (Except the titler which people have been screaming for since version 2).
"It fills a gap for those that don't need the functionality of an application suite like CS3".
What gap? Do you mean it does what Premiere does but without Photoshop and After Effects? Or do you mean it does not do what Premiere does?
