ive been having this problem for some time now and cant seem to get around it, so i decided to turn to the professionals it seems that most of the dvd's i burn turn out ok. during playback they are good for 96% of the movie. nearly every single movie errors, skips and freezes at the very end. somehow i beleive it has something to do with the finalizing process. even when it appears to have burned properly. also, when burning a previously burned dvd, i get read errors at the very end, which tells me that where the skipping and freezing begins, is obviously where the read errors are. im using prodisc blank dvd's and a liteon burner in an hp machine. for software i get the same results in all dvd shrink, dvd xcopy pro, dvd decrypter, nero etc.... thanks for any advice.
