    Hi all i'm trying to burn a movie onto a DVD+R when i do so it begins to play ok but then starts to jump at places, is this due to the DVD being blue bottomed and not gold, as most players cannot read blue bottom discs correctly....

    hi there, i`m not getting that. mine is freezing & sometimes breaking up. i`m using
    smartripper to demux then checking the size of the m2v file to see if it needs encoded.if it does i use rempeg 2, if not then spruceup and prassi to burn. i got a pioneer 104 & use datawrite classic with the yellow top.
    is it the dvd-r?
    do u know of any good dvd-r to use?

    the datawrite dvd+r is not good for video , hence why it is so cheap, try dvd+master there about 20 dearer than datawrite but give you less problems
    another fav is richo dvd+r
    i had 30 of the datawrite ones and threw them all away because of the same problem. there only good for data.
    as for the dvd-r i cant help you. im more of a dvd+ guy

    thanks for the advise i will try those ones, as for the other guy, i have the Two Towers on DVD format already... it's in 93 files and you just join then together, then burn the image to dvd... it's very simple to do so

    LOL. no need to shout buddy, just being honest with you. i really dont know much about dvd-
    all i can say is that i use traxdata with my dvd ao3 and never had a problem like,
    i use smartripper to rip the dvd then if its small enougth i go straight to ifoedit, if its to big i re-encode using tmpg then i put the m2v file in ifoedit with the ac3 file that dvd2avi created, try it that way.

    Oh crap! I just bought 20 Datawrite DVD+R's and since I have a Aopen DVRW2412PRO, which is basically a Ricoh MP5212A, I guess I'll be watchin' choppie movies too :( But does this also effect the movie quality in PS2 Back-Ups?

    That sux. I was really tempted by the price and I also don't like those dvd-boxes that take up so much of my valuable space since my dvd collection is gonna grow a lot faster with a dvd writer :). Also a big problem here in Holland is the availability of DVD+R's on spindles.
    Isn't there a way to calibrate you dvd-lens in your PS2 to give it a little boost?? I mean if it can be done with the cd-lens it should be possible to do it to the dvd-lens.

    Hi again I just burned a couple of datawrite DVD+R's with my Aopen DVRW2412PRO and it seems te be working fine afterall.

    I was looking at the top of the dvd when I noticed that there was a small impression on the surface and when I looked closely it read Sony DVD+R??!! So Datawrite is probably buying discs from other manufacturers. The choppy movies are caused by the weight of the discs. I think the discs are just to heavy to spin at the right speed. Just like with cd's with a paper covers.

    Edit
    Cool, I found one made by Ricoh.

    hi guys,
    k i bought some traxdata dvd+r disks today,
    cost me £0.90p per disk.
    burned 5 upto now with no problems, working in ps2 and standalone players,
    not sure about the weight though. the disk uses the blue dye.

    I just bought some DVD-ON +rw and those are working great. I don't have any problems with playback on my dvd player. You can buy them for $2 a piece at supermedia.

    hi guys,well the bulkpaq green 2x are doing the same has the datawrite classic with the yellow top breaking up. i found that the disc with the dark purple dye is far by the best. traxdata do one & datasafe did one. could anyboby let me know of any other brands that has the dark purple writing surface that would be great.
