Are you really trying to burn a DVD from HDV or are you burning a BluRay disk? That alone could make a world of difference.
Burning a standard DVD from HDV content is an iffy proposition, with lots of potential problems.
On the other hand, I'm not sure a Pentium D has the power to handle HDV video to any degree. That could be why it's having trouble handling an entire 46 minute video.
I have a 3.0 GHz Pentium D which was the first generation dual core. It does take a little while to convert (1.5 to 2 hours). It can be a little slow when displaying, but it should be able to handle the encoding. It appears that the different process are getting out of sync or one of them is stuck.
I am starting with HDV content. I am trying to make a regular DVD because the other people don't have a Blu-Ray player yet.
What is the best way to make a DVD if the original content was recorded in HDV?
Do I need to import as DV? Can I convert it on my computer?
Yes. If you're planning to export a DVD from footage you shot in HDV, the best solution and most efficient workflow is to downsample the footage from your camcorder when you capture it, per the FAQs at the top of this forum.
