    I have just tried to watch a downloaded movie on my stand alone player, but it started freezing after about 45mins and by about 90mins it was so bad I finished watching it on my PC and it worked fine.
    I have burnt and watched other movies using the same media without a problem, but this movie was longer (2hs 10mins)and Nero altered the quality to long play to fit it on the dvd. Could this cause the problem? .. But if it is, why have a long play option?

    I am using Philips +RW now as I need practice! I have had three successful burns with these and thought i was home and dry finally, but now I have this freezing up problem.

    Freezing Problems are in my experience due to 2 things... your dvd player does not like the discs you are using, or you simply using rubbish discs. Try using Datawrite Titanium 8x discs or go for the very best which are Taiyo Yuden (which i always use) packs of 100 are available from www.svp.co.uk. Taiyo Yuden cost a little bit more (£46.00 for 100) but are well worth it as i have never had one stick or fail and they last much longer than any other disc i have used

    Make sure the firmware for your burner is up to date, this can also cause playback problems.

    .....I agree with the skunkman, if it plays on the pc and not the standalone its most likely those 2 things.....

    Here are some media codes for phillips +rw media.

    Philips DVD+RW 2.4x (CMC MAG.W01)
    Philips DVD+RW 2.4x (INFODISCA01)
    Philips DVD+RW 4x (PHILIPS 041)
    Philips DVD+RW 4x (RICOHJPNW11)

    The first two are bad and the last two are good. Use this free proggy to get the media code of your discs and let us know and we'll go from there. http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/ Could be poor quality media, or could be compatability problem with your stand-alone. May need to try -r media, may be able to booktype dvd-rom, but first report the media code of your discs and the make and model of your burner.
