    If the copy you gave to your friend was burned on your PC one of two things could be wrong:-


    1. The media is bad quality (which is usually the case)
    2. The media you are using is incompatible with your burner. If this is the case it *may* be fixed by updating your firmware (the 'bios' of your burner if you will)

    I use lazer(4X) in my burner, and they are fine. But some other "high quality" brands like akai, have issues. (I use the term "high quality" very loosely, as i dislike akai)

    If you know a certain media works well, stick with it.

    But if you want to try to make the cheaper brand work, have a go at the firmware upgrade.

    There may be a guide and file for it at the website for your dvd burner. like for LG its www.lge.com

    Specifically if you used the same file.
