    Not much luck here lately.
    One DVD I burned with instant copy forget somehow to include the sound...it just took 3 hours to burn.

    Then I got me a new standalone dvd player a JVC hoping the effect that I had with my old thoshiba (movie freezing, broken pixels) would resolve. But it does the same.

    Those broken pixels...what is the cause of that? Bad media or bad burning or bad player?

    tnx

    InstantCopy is not the thing to burn with. Either Nero or failing that RecordNow.

    And it does sound like you want to use half decent media perhaps although you havent stated which you use so it'd be hard to say. Tend to use Datasafe Media Ritek Dye X4 DVD-R myself & they are as sound as a pound !

    http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdplayers and type in JVC model to see what other owners of such players have found to be good media etc.

    What DVD ripping process are you using?

    I use:

    1.AnyDVD
    2.CloneDVD
    3.Finished

    Or

    1.AnyDVD
    2.DVD Shrink
    3.Finished

    Chances are that you are doing something wrong during the ripping/transcoding process and that why your getting a bad burn every time.

    Be careful not to strain the processor whilst burning by running IE or other programs. also, its worth noting thathigh compression rates (30%+) can leave a very dodgy picture to contend with on a larger screen.

    I use for myself without any problems

    TDK 440N v1.08 Burner
    Generic DVD-R (Princo)
    DVDShrink Beta 3.0
    Nero

    The pixeling thing could be due to heating. My friend has his Dvd player on top of his tv and all movies that he plays start pixeling at the end. I tried at my place the same DVD movie and nothing, perfect re-play. Only diference we have is the setup.What Dvd player did u buy? I have JVC XV-44SLV and it plays everything that i throw at it wonderfully.

    It is completely multi-tasking, but with slow processors and the need for burning to be constant, it matters more when you are trying to multi-task something with a burn than it would with running Word, Excel, IE and some other program together.

    What is a TDK (for instance) good for if you have a coaster on it? I'm going to give em a try.

    Lots fo things. You can use them instead of clay pigeons or you can use them as frisbies. If you still are unsatisfied, you can use them to build your very own leaning tower.

    hehe

    If you are looking for good media,then use Ritec discs as they are excellent if not a bit expensive, but they get the job done every time! Ritecs are distinguishable by there purple/blue die.

    Good luck :D

    lol - easy mistake :-D

    Ebay are hard to buy from since you cant be sure if they are grade a or not, its merely trusting someone with no possible chance of getting a refund within reason if they dont work.

    True, a lot of them do, but generally, those with the better media dont sell on ebay in the UK anyway. Look at the 3 main Ritek dealers, none sell on Ebay.
