    last night I was burning a .avi video file from my flashdisk onto a DVD, so after inserting the DVD i chose to open finder and burn from there.
    So after copying the file to the DVD menu i clicked burn n it started burning and it reached 100% then said finishing burn and stayed like that for more than 5 min !!!!! I tried to stop the burn but couldnt and tried to eject also couldnt!!!!so i force shut down the laptop then ejected the DVD!!!!:S

    Are you asking a question?
    Sounds like the disc was being finalised but you've interrupted that by turning off your mac. Now the disc probably wont work/ can't be read properly.
    Don't worry if it takes a little longer than what you expected, sometimes its just the Disk Utility verifying the burn.

    I'm still unsure as to were your problem is? Can you eject the disc yet? If the file plays, then the burn process worked. Next time, don't worry if it takes a little longer than you expect.
