    Ocassionally when I watch a movie about half way through it starts to break up. How can I eliminate this problem?

    I have a new Original James Bond film that has digitizing in it. I got rid of most of the problem by making another copy and compressing it. It still has a little bit, about 5 seconds and the rest of the movie is okay.

    What speeds are you burning at? What kind of media are you using? Apparently burning at higher speeds while produce poorer quality (pixilation, etc..) than say burning at 2x or maybe 4x. I generally burn at 2x now due to the same issues. However cheaper DVDs can also cause this same poor quality at slower burns. Oyea, does the copy that you put on your harddrive also have glitches in it also? That would pretty much narrow your problem down to either the processing of the dvd or the actual burning.

    I burn a 4x, I have a Sonic Record Now burner and it only allows 4X or 1X. I am using Ritek G04 disks.
    My digitizing is mostly okay on the computer. and only digitzes on the DVD player.

    I do have the James Bond movie digitizing on the hard drive.
    Thanks

    Ritek is the leading maker of dvd, and they make most the DVDs that the others simply put there names on. But you might want to test some others. Also check and see if there is some updated firmware for you Sonic burner. There are usally updates every so often that will change things such as how deep the lazer will actually butn into the dvd, and also burn and read speed changes. There might actually be a critical firmware update for your drive. Read all warnings though before attempting to update your firmware. Another thought too, when burning your movies dont multi-task (using other programs) this causes the buffer to see-saw up and down and can have a negative inpression on your final product.

    Ya know, the pixelation or jumpy picture being blamed on burning too fast is a RUMOR! A Rumor which isn't true.

    The last time I heard something like this, was a few years back. When burning audio CDs, some people only burnt them at 2x or 4x because they thought that if you burnt them at a higher speed they wouldn't sound as good.

    Well WAKE UP! It's all DIGITAL recordings, it doesn't matter what speed you burn them at. The quality doesn't degrade like analog media. So stop spreading these incorrect rumors.

    I burn my DVDs at 8x with 8x media and haven't had a problem yet.

    If you burn with Nero, just check the VERIFY box on the bottom while it is burning and it will verify the burnt copy with the copy of your hard drive. If you do that, and you STILL think you have pixelation or bad quality, then you are either using too much compression when you re-encoded it, or you are just strange. :)

    Sometimes I get the digitizing on the movie and redo it with Maxwell media and everything is okay.

    What about the movie that is on my hard drive that breaks up with pixals for about 5 seconds and the rest of the movie is okay? Is ther anyway to correct that?

    Ok CeeKay I guess the hundreds of other posts in this forum in reference to higher speed creating poor quality burns are also wrong. And the times that it fixed there probems was just in their imagination. tashacat, if it is the same way before you burn it then the burning is not YOUR problem. Is it pixilized in the menus or extras or is it the movie itself? If is is in the menus only then you can more than likely blame it on the higher compression rate of the menus and extras (if that is the way you have your repacking or shrinking software set up). are the glitches in the original rip (7Gig or so, dvd 9)? If they are then i would check for firmware updates. just let us know. and ceekay, have you ever heard of lazer depth? if you dont have adiquate lazer depth then you will get a poor quality burn. you remember what you said "Well WAKE UP! It's all DIGITAL recordings, it doesn't matter what speed you burn them at. The quality doesn't degrade like analog media. So stop spreading these incorrect rumors." hmmmm, is that not still a digital recording?
