    Well, not alltogether. But when making backups of my games such as
    Star Ocean: TTEOT
    Ratchet And Clank 3
    Metal Gear Solid 3
    and a couple others..

    It seems during gameplay, the games themselves will hang, such as in SO:TTEOT. The game freezes up a few seconds while entering battle, and hangs before battle actually starts.

    Ratchet And Clank, the voices seem to have a hard time loading. Oh they'll load, and play after the mouths of the characters have already moved, and sometimes wont at all.

    MGS3. Right in the middle of gameplay it'll give me a little disk icon up in the top left corner. And a question mark. The game just stops. Nothing else. Every so often.

    Now what I am using..
    Lite-On DVDRW LDW-411S
    Tried first with some cheap Spin-X dvd-rs, after failing numerous times got Some CompUSA DVD+Rs which will load and cause these problems.
    DVD Decrypter to burn my backups.

    Thanks for any and all help offered.

    USE GOOD MEDIA

    Burn at 2x speed.(MAX)
    I suggest 1x Until your sure your backups work 100%
    http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

    EXAMPLES OF GOOD MEDIA

    Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
    PVC = Pioneer = (-R)(-RW)
    MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<-----------------VERBATIM MY CHOICE #1
    TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)<--------------FUJIFILM (made in japan) MY CHOICE #2

    Decent discs, though not perfect, about 85-95%
    success rate:

    RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
    SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
    INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
    RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)
    RITEKG03 = Ritek = (-R)
