Also, see this ARTICLE from the Tips & Tricks sub-forum, for things to look at with crashes and hangs. It covers the hardware, the OS and the software, and offers links for tuning up the system, and getting it ready for video editing. I know that there is a lot of material in there, but Neale has done a great job of putting things into a checklist, and offering links to other material.
That rec. is for use along with John T's links, which are a bit more specific to your burned DVD's.
Okay i will.
