    i've been backing up some of my dvds using "1clickdvd" software. the playback on some of the disks seems as if they are dirty. it gets really choppy and i get the little out of place squares dancing around the screen. i can pull the disk, put it right back in and play the same section of the movie and it will playback fine. i only copy the movie without any extras. i'm wondering if anyone would know if this is a hardware, software, or media problem. thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi,

    If you're shopping in an electronics store the media to look for would be either Verbatim DataLifePlus or Maxell.

    Ritek is primarily available online though at very good prices :)

    Hi,

    Any of the three I listed will be very good. The Verbatims and Maxells tend to cost a bit more especially in a retail store whereas the Riteks can be had online for very good prices :)
