    I got some dynex discs from Best Buy sometime ago when they were about 9 bucks for a 50 pack. They code out as being Verbatims MMC 004 and it got a quality score of 93. The thing is no matter how I burn the discs they refuse to work in all but one dvd player that I have put them in. They work fine in a laptop , but they get are very choppy and eventually freeze when put in a standalone player.

    Is there anything I can do to fix this or am I stuck with 50 discs I cannot use for movies?

    How fast you burning them? Keep the burn at around 8x.

    What's the brand name,model#,and current firmware version of your dvd-rw drive?

    Does that burner play it's own backups ok while viewing on the pc? Make sure it plays it near perfection. It's usually a stand alone player issue.Test the backups on other drives as well.That'll tell you if the problem is with a certain drive or if most drives are having issues with your dynex verbs.

    Do you slap on sticker labels?

    Multi-tasking during the dvd backup process?

    What are you backing up? Original dvds or Avi-dvd,etc.

    Does other blank dvd media work ok?

    Players can be sensitive to all those things I listed,thus making them picky players.. Here's some more things that can trigger playback issues on a picky player:

    Burn engine
    Fragmented HD
    Dirty laser lens-after ruling everything else out.That's usually the culprit.
    Certain MID coded media
    Programs transferring files into dvd compliant format
    Burn quality: Keep firmware up to date to help control the writing strategy. There's also some crap drives out there.

    i bought some of those dynex +r a while back too. i burned all 50 with dvdxcopy when i had it and they all skipped when they got to the middle of the movie except in one certain dvd player. i just got some sony -r and burned them and they work fine in all dvd players. i would say cut your loses and get some sony -r or most people recomend verbatium.

    I only use Verbatim +R's myself. A co worker gave me some Dynex and they are something terrible.
