    Hey george5,On your backups,will they play ok on the pc?Try to pick up some high quality media like verbatim or maxell's.Poor media is usually the culprit,especially when you put that backup in a stand alone player.Symptoms of poor media in stand alones are:freezing,pixelating,chapters skipping around,no disc inserted error, and audio trouble.Another thing it could be is too fast of burn rate. Poorer media may need a slower speed.If that don't take care of the problem then you might want to try dvd shrink. It is free. It works very well with nero.I am a newbie but dvd shrink 3.2 is an awesome program with high quality backups.Good luck
