    Your symptoms,point to either cheap media,or burning too fast,or both.Use good media like taiyo yuden, maxell, verbatim, or ritek.If your using cheap stuff,dont burn any faster than 4x.
    good luck

    i have 2 sony dvd players and have yet see either one of them have trouble with a disc (over 1000).

    you still didn't say how fast you are burning. take earlier advice and slow it down
    also no multitasking during encoding and burning
    what program are you burning with?

    Not exactly sure what we are talking about there as I have only seen purple dye on DVD R media?

    dhop11,
    It could just be you old Apex player does'nt like the media you are feeding it. If it plays fine on the computer this is more than likely the case. If you get a chance try the disk's out on another player (a buddies if you don't have one) just to be sure, but if your Apex is older as you say it may be time for a new DVD player. you can pick up the elchepo ones from WalMart for around $40 and they will play just about anything.. :)

    yes you are rite all have the purple dye on what i call the bottom read side but what i was referring too was the top side ive seem gold and silver was just thinking that the silver top disk seem to work a little better, just bought a new dvd player a cybehome and the movie still plays the same wy eevn with the new player i am puzzled now??

    my dvd recorder can it be daisy chained or should it be a direct mother board connection??? could this be a pproblem but like i said all movies play fine on computer??

    Try using DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink combined.. Decrypter is better equiped to rip movies. Use the ScubaPete guide at my website the link is in my signature.. :)
