hi i have spent a lot of time and money trying to get the perfect dvd backups from my toshiba sd-r5002 dvd writer. i have been using datawrite classic 2x grey top discs(as i read they were supposed to be an excellent choice). started burning dvd-r's at 2x speed, the result was starting to skip towards the end of the movie in my standalone dvd player but worked o.k. in my ps2? then i tried burning at 1x, the result most would playback fine on my standalone player too. how come this happens ? both the dvd burner and discs are rated 2x. another problem now, lately though i have been burning at 1x every time and i have had a few discs which will fail to load up in my standalone dvd player, why is this ? so anybody who can tell me is it : crap media, or crap burner?
