    Hello limelight, what media are you using and how fast are you burning? I keep my my target at 4300 mbs. Some media has uneven dye "poor media" and the outside edge of the disc can cause those problems. The outside edge is also where your fingers touch.By not burning the outer edge of disc,we need to keep that target size anywhere from 4300 to 4360 mbs. The poor media can cause this same problem and many others, anywhere on the disc.

    thanks for the advice guys. i use memorex dvd-r's at 4x speed.
    so just compress the movie a bit more and it'll be all set? sounds too good to be true, i hope it works! lol

    ty youdin's are suppose to be the best,if they are not counterfiet.Everyone has their own BEST,depends if their burner and standalones like them and if they have the right firmware to run them.Media is getting trickier these days. Most media,say maxell, is made by many different manufacturers.Quality between these manufacturers can vary. Take verbatim, they use Mcc==mitsubishi chemical,ricohjpn,and cmags. Stay away from cmags. Memmorex uses quite a majority of cmags=cmagnetics.Memorex is not recommeded around here.Verbatim is said to be very good in the - format, the + format are working great for me. Also,the different quantities can vary from manufacturer: 25 cake made by ricoh,the 50 cake of same brand made by cmags. Here is a handy tool that can help identify your blank media: http://dvdinfopro.com Here is a site you can check those codes out and how they rank,however it has not been updated for a while: http://digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm I usually get the + format because that is all my stand alone tv burner will do.The maxell -r4x's did a fine job. They have the yellowtops,code mxl-rg02,but there are counterfiets for them as well. If you buy them in a store, a quick thing to remember is look for the country of manufacturer. If it is made in japan, then they should be high quality.These can be mcc by ty's,fuji, and verbatim. made in taiwan,maybe decent, If made anywhere else,stay away from them.I just picked up a 25 pack of sony -4x and they are doing a great job.Happy Holidays to all

    i checked out my discs are they read as "prodisc03". on that link that had the "quality meter" these ranked as "2nd class media". so i guess its all the compression thats doing it. ill give it a shot and see what happens.

    I think I'd change media, slow the burn speed down. Reducing the size a bit helps if the problem is occuring during the last couple of minutes, but 15-20?
    I burned a few spindles of Memorex and they did the same thing on occasion. The Riteks I use now don't have the same problem. I quit burning faster than 4X and that seemed to help as well.

    i cant believe how a company can scam consumers in the way where they put there name on the media, but some 3rd rate manufacturer actually makes it.

    can someone send me a link to some dvd-r's that are high quality? ( a direct link to the exact product would be ideal.)

    That does suck between high quality brand names using low quality media. It is hard to figure out the good ones. If buying at a local store,look for made in japan. Those should be considered high quality,made by mcc "mitsubishi chemecal co."Made in taiwan,maybe decent or junk. I even have MCC coded media made in taiwan,like verbatim +4x datalife.They are pretty good,but I can tell they are not like the ones i bought "made in japan".Made in singapore,may be ok.If they are made anywhere else,definitely junk. If you are buying them an the net,check out the dvd-r forum room. Someone always always posting sites of good deals and then people will add how they are coded and how they are performing. Those 2 links i posted earlier will help out. Later

    Hey limelight, I am glad lowering the target size fixed your problem. Good Luck with those memorex.
