    Hello can anyone help me with the fact that my dvd back ups play for the first hour and a half then they start to skip but if i put it in another dvd player they work perfictly fine from that point onwards on the other player. I don't know if its just me or beacuse of the speed i'm writing at (x4).

    If anyone can help i'm using a freecom classic external 8 -/+ speed drive. Plus i'm using Bulkpaq printable surface 4x dvd-r's which seem to be workin just fine for most back ups.

    My dvd player is a limit dvd800 and the other is my ps2if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

    I'd be willing to bet it's your player. Try your backups in a friends or neighbors player.
