    A few questions for you:

    What dvd player are you using?
    What media are you using?
    What program are you using to burn?
    How much are you compressing?

    dvd player-acoustic solutions 551
    drive - new liteon 16x multi burner
    software-dvd shrink
    compression -not much as i reauthor film and take out all extra content,therefore file is around 85-100% of origional size

    hmmm not brilliant disks and burned too fast imho...

    some players can handle disks burnt faster but you will get issues in a couple of months time!

    Honestly...with video's always burn them at 4x. I know time wise its not the best. But I have always gotten the best results that way. Also is your dvd player rated to play backups?

    Liteon makes my sony drive DRU710A. Verbatum and Tiyo yuden works great in these drives. Personally I like Verbatum (MCC003 media code), Product #94930 50PK. I've tested alot with this media running nero cd quality test. Looks the best for me burned at 6X.

    Good Luck

    yeah, do as the previous gus suggested. plus do some searching, thre'll be loads of threads re skipping, freezing etc, limit size to say 4300mb etc; search the forums and ye shall find. good luck
