And welcome to the forums
Did you purchase the program from Corel?
During installation there may be a few boxes to fill, “user name” and maybe a “business” I usually put Home in that box, but make sure you fill in each/every box.
Try copying the disc content to your hard drive, then install from there
Some details here regarding installing from disc

Just to add that I would advise that you set your project properties to match the video files properties.
There is an option from Preferences (F6) to Show Messages when inserting First clip….(Active when adding the first clip to a NEW project)
This prompts you to match the properties, unless the properties are already set as such or the video properties are non-standard and cannot be used for the project.
Even so I would say two settings to be correct are the frame rate (25/29.97fps –50/60fps) and the aspect ratio 16:9 or 4:3.

I think Brian is right.
Programmes unfortunately interfere with each other, and especially burning ones. Nero is a particular problem.
Although you say you removed all traces, it is possible you didn't and unless you can find every last bit of PD in the registry etc, it will remain a problem. Sometimes it is other registry items that it has changed that remain after total removal of PD and these are nigh on impossible to find.
Often the only way to deal with such a problem is reformat, reinstall windows and then reinstall the programmes.

I've just purchased Corel Studio Pro x7 from Amazon.com and proceeded to try to install it by putting the first CD in my computer. I got to the license screen, scrolled to the end (which I think was unnecessary) and then checked the box that says I agree to the terms. Then I clicked "Next" and nothing happens. What can I do to get around this? I've tried closing the screen and starting again, but I come to the same point. Please advise. Thanks.

I think it's strange that VS lost it's ability to write DVD's since I am loading it from a purchased Corel disk. The disk should not be corrupted. Since most of my DVD's are watched on TV, It looks like I have no choice but to scrap VS and go 100% with PD12. I can produce DVD's from the MPEG4 (from VS) with another program but thats a terrible workaround.
I checked the Corel site and they want $19.00 for a onetime problem solving mission. I went to the Corel Facebook site and got thoroughly confused. They should read this site and join in from time to time with their expertise.
Anyway, thanks for everyone's input to me. If I ever fing out how to fix this I will post it here for all to read.

Sorry but I cannot think why the program should crash.
My best shot was the graphics driver, but if you have checked that….
Do you have another version of Video Studio installed if so does that have the same issue, I think all versions use common burner module files?
When you re-installed did you fully remove the program, choosing to remove all personal details. Corel did provide a “Clean-up tool” for VS X7, try uninstalling using that, I have attached to this post.
You can ask the question on Corel’s Facebook, that is staffed by Corel employees,
Maybe they can suggest a reason for this.

I used this program for several months with no problem. I made several DVD's with no problem. Then I started to learn PowerDirector 12 and used that for a couple of months. When I tried to use VS again, the DVD function would not work. I don't have any idea what happened during the time I was not using it. I just removed the program and re-installed it hoping it would fix itself. IT DIDN'T. Sure could use some help with this. I'm out of ideas.

Have you downloaded the FREE trial of X7 - this would allow you to see for yourself - on your computer what VideoStudio can do
You can also view the complete user manual here - it guides you through all that VS can do

Have you downloaded the FREE trial - this would allow you to see for yourself that these options were available.
