Hello, New member here and new to the DVD burn game. I have made several attempts to burn DVD's with less than great results. I will try to break this down: System: P4 1.3, Windows XP, 512MB RAM Micro Advantage DVD+R/RW 16X Burner Media used: Maxwell DVD+R (First Try), Sony DVD+R (Second Try). Used DVD Shrink with Nero. Problems: Burned a downloaded movie, would play in my PS2. Attempted a full back-up of a DVD movie, was prompted that the burn was good, DVD movie would not play in my computer or PS2, would not even show up as present (DVD Disk) using My Computer. Burned a second downloaded movie. Played 1/4 the way through, audio became out of synce with the video. Video stopped. Attempted another burn of another downloaded movie, same problem as the attempted back-up of the DVD movie. My IDE ATA/ATAPI is set to DMA if available. DVD takes anywhere from 4-6 hours with deep analysis. I have slowed the burn speed to 2x and 4x with negative results. My stand alone player is a PS2 that was purchased in 2001. I know the burner is burning but I must be missing something somewhere that is bugging the burn. Any help please.
