I still don’t have a DVD burner, so cannot speak from experience. But I have read about problems with external units in general, the wrong driver, with trying to use USB (you need USB2 or Firewire) to make DVDs, and with disc type (single or double layer). There is no problem with JPEG (must be one of the commonest formats for images, and I have seen them on homemade DVDs).

You could do a couple of tests. First, can you record these images on a CD? If so, you might want to look into speed, discs, etc. If not, can you record anything at all with your unit?

I imagine someone here will have something more specific to say. And there was a long thread on a similar problem on a Mac over on Snarkish (you can read without registering). There is a lot of technical information mixed in that thread, some of which may give you a clue.
