    I am wondering why when converting avi or mpg files to dvd format sometimes either at the beginning or near the end of the movie it gets choppy. The dvd stops and starts doesnt run smooth. It seems to me that it happens when the movie is longer then two hours. I am basically burning through my dvds to get a good copy that will play on my dvd player sometimes I am burning two or three before I get one to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am using various converters to switch the format and I run into problems using all of them.

    thanks

    I use Convertxtodvd and never have a problem. I used to use Nero and never had an issue with it either. Done some stuff well over 2hrs in length.

    What type of blank discs r using? Low quality discs like Memorex will result in low quality burns/playback. Stick with Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim, Sony/Maxell(made in Japan)and burn at half the rated speed of disc.

    Is the firmware of your burner up to date? That can cause issues.

Can you offer any help?

    To me it sounds like a media problem, Only use the best to get the best results, the best are Verbatims and Taiyo Yuden

    BTW, open nero Info tool to find out what version u firmware is.
