Ok, this is an odd error I'm having using burnt DVD-R's. I have a rip in pure video mode (video_ts.ifo, files etc.). I burnt via Nero to a Ridata disc. When I played the disc in my DVD player (Oritron 3116-plays about anything) it would play fine for a time, but at certain points it would freeze and skip ahead. When it does this I can hear the laser working like it's trying to read very loudly. I figured it was just a bad burn and re-burnt it, but the same thing happened. It skips and stutters at the same points in the movies. The points are both in the middle and the end and to a lesser to degree at the beginning. I figured then that it must be a bad rip, so I took a look at the video on my computer. No problems there. I then put the DVD that I burnt into my computer, watched it on there and it worked fine-no stutters at all! It's done this on about 5 different dvd's that I've burned recently. They are all fine on my computer but won't play on the oritron. I know the Oritron can read DVD-R's because I've played tons of them on there, both Ridata and some other DVDR's that I've used. It just seems that lately it has been having problems with any disk I burn. I ran the disks through a readability test using DVD X Rescue and they registers 10-20% soft errors and 0 hard errors, but plenty of disks I have that do play fine register higher than that. Is there something wrong with the DVD-R's, my DVD player or my burning process? Anyone have an idea on how to figure it all out? At $1 a DVD I hate making coasters.
