    it seems like every other dvd I backup this will happen. when I play the dvd back on my dvd player like at least 3 times during the playback the movie pauses for a second and I noticed the time counter on the dvd player will skip that second like it will go from 611 to 613 its weird. I use verbatim dvd-r's.........and I have an i/o magic 8x dvd burner.............please help someone............I use nero recode 2 and nero to burn it.......

    Get blanks rated for 8x
    And then burn them @ 4x
    See if your standalone DVD player likes that better :)

    Also make sure you're using quality blanks. If you've read more than ten threads here at AfterDawn then you'll know to stay away from Memorex.

    What brand standalone player do you have? If it doesnt have progressive scan (which is like a read buffer) it can struggle with DVD-R's (especially if the movies compressed). Some brands eg LG have macrovision hardware protection that can determine a genuine from a copy. This protection doesnt prevent the copy from playing but can distort the quality to the point you need to go down the pub to recover.

    Check the media code of your verbatim media. Make sure they are not cmc magnetics.
