    My burned DVD-R's are having a couple frame freezes in my stand alone player. I have an older DVD player (4 ys old) and haven't tested in another player yet. I don't know if its my player, the media I'm using, the software or the burner. help would be much appreciated!
    here's the critical info:

    NEC 3500A DVD+/- 16x Dual Layer Burner (brand new)
    Cambridge Soundworks DVD player (4 yrs old)
    TDK CD-R 8x media
    Copy original DVD with cloneDVD
    Burn with NeroExpress

    HELP!

    I forgot to add that I burned the same movie again (the same way/same TDK DVD-R) and it freezes at different points in the movie. not sure if this is significant.

    Your problem is usually media related. I would try a few different brands (maybe Ritek or Verbatim) and see which one your burner and player like the best.

    A firmware flash could help. Also if burning at a high speed (8X) drop speed to 4X. This sometimes help burn problems on cheaper media.

    thanks for the help. bestbuy didnt have Verbatim DVD-R's, so i reburned the media I had (TDK) at 4x and it played through without freezing. hopefully thats the trick.
