If you try to burn a DVD by using Microsoft Windows Movie Maker version 2.1 on your Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005-based computer, you receive the following error message:
Create a DVD Movie Maker cannot create the DVD because an error occurred.
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
You use Fast User Switching to change user accounts before you try to burn the DVD.
The account that you switched to does not have sufficient permissions to use the DVD burn engine that is used by Windows Movie Maker. To burn a DVD, the user account must have administrator permissions.
To work around this problem, log on to an account that has administrator permissions before you try to burn a DVD.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
