I have burned about 20 dvds so far and 7 of the 20 pause or skip in the middle of nowhere over and over then all of a sudden locks. Has anyone encountered this? I bought a new dvd player cause I thought it was that but the new one skipped as well. I was watching Anchorman and at 25 mins it stopped completely.(froze) I went to try it again about anh hour later and it worked ok at the 25 mins then started skipping again about 15 mins later. Im guessing its either one of these reasons. Can someone confirm? 1-I do work in the background while its burning. 2- I burned at 4x instead of 1(although 1x still skipped a bit) or 3- Cheap CDs.
