    Hi,

    I posted my problem in another 2 forums but I didn't get any solution. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this topic about burning problems but I really need help.

    Last two months my burned dvds are freezing and showing pixels.

    I am sure the media is not the problem because I've been using Maxell dvd-r for the last 5 years. And I also burned dvds on another computer and they play well on my standalone dvd player. But when I burn dvds on my computer they freeze on the same standalone player.

    I also bought a new dvd burner but it was not the problem and I tried all speeds as well.

    I use ImgBurn and DVDFab.

    Please is there any last hope?

    Try using Verbatim brand disks.
    Get the ones that say 'AZO' or 'Advanced AZO' on the package - not their cheaper 'Life' series.
    In ImgBurn, Tools > Settings > Write, check 'Perform OPC before write'.

    Yes I already tried AZO Verbatim and TDK as well but still with the same problem.

    Now after all this time trying to figure out, I installed Alcohol120% Trial and I burned 3 dvds with it and they worked all fine. Could this be possible or it's a coincidence? I mean if that was the problem, what is wrong with DVDfab and ImgBurn? They are both updated to the latest version.

    But maybe when I burn more dvds they will skip and freeze again, who knows?!!!

    Do the disks that freeze on your standalone also freeze on a different standalone.

    Yes they freeze on another different standalone too.

    But I think I figured out what was the problem. I installed older Imgburn version 2.5.1.0 and I tried 5 dvds and non of them freezed. Is that possible or is that a coincidence?

    If it works, then use it, however I've been using the latest (Jan 2011) 2.5.0.0 without any problems and I haven't seen any reports at the Forum.

    2.5.0.0 is older than Jan 2011, it is 2 years old.

    So why older version works fine? I still cant figure out!
