Default Data dvd problem

Ok, I fixed my video dvd problem, but now I need to burn a data dvd for a friend, and when I try and run the Nero app that does this, it crashes. I am running vista which could be the problem. So I tried Burn4Free, and it gets to 99% the last small file and doesnt go any further. So I try vistas way of doing it, just drag and drop, well it burns fine and all, but when I stick the disk in another computer its blank. Only Vista can read it, what good will that do anyone? Any ideas why I cant burn or what I should do?

Have you tried formatting the blank DVD disc? After that, then burn it again.

Formatting it with Vista? Yes, thats one of the reasons it didnt work on the other computer I think.

No Ithink the media is fine because I've burned a movie on one and data with my old computer. Plus its Sony, sony usually is pretty good. Any other programs I should try maybe?

I have heard Roxio is good software for burning, maybe give that a try, but it could also be that Vista doesn't like your hardware maybe.
