Help Needed: Error writing a DVD of slideshow

I have WinXP Pro with 512MB RAM. I am using Sonic's MyDVD 5.0 with the OptoRite DD0203 4x dual format DVD-RW drive.

I've put together a slideshow of JPGs and MySonic does all the prep work but after going through the writing phase and what appears to be near completion of the DVD, I get the following error, reported by MyDVD (although I don't think its really a MyDVD problem):

Could not complete the last command because: Device Error - Sense Code(4 09 01) - Tracking Servo Failure - Read (DVDErr, 264449)

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

According to the ATAPI errors, the problem lies either in the windows configuration, or the disks that you use (fingerprints, dirt, ...): http://www.bhacorp.com/support/atapi/errors4.html#

According to another site, try burning at a lower speed: http://www.mp3machine.com/software/C...sages/84.shtml

Good luck!

LolaRennt,
Thanks for the info...

I updated the firmware update and tried a burn and it worked perfectly! While watching the first burn on my stand alone DVD player, I tried to make a 2nd burn (I hadn't even shut down the MyDVD software or changed anything between the two burns ) and that resulted in the same error.
