    I've got an old AVI that was sitting on my hard drive for awhile and I decided to throw it permanently on a DVD. Similar projects have all worked out fine so I was surprised when I was playing it back how I noticed those occasional moments in a video when things will occasionally stop freeze a few seconds then the video will continue.

    I checked the source material on my hard drive and it looks fine, so I guess it has to be in the recording, but I always use Verbatum blanks and good burning software (TMPGEnc Authoring Works) and I play everything back on a pretty solid performing Yamaha Home Audio non blu-ray DVD Player.

    Also all of my other disks that I've ever put in this machine, both rentals and one or two more of these old things I have and never have I seen a freezing problem before. So could it be just basically problems that come up and are associated with old video being thrown on a modern day disk, could it possibly be the machine? ( I know there's no "perfect" one out there, or how about the fact that I'm running the HDMI cable though set at the lowest resolution (420)?

    I have a feeling too that it just be the glitch factor. In other words if I burned it again on a new disc, it probably would not show up during playback.

    You AVI is to big to fit perfect onto a DVD-5 (4.7GB)... but in reality it only accept 4.4GB of data to be playback without a freeze-stop-freeze error; since you are burning all the way to the outside-edge of the blank-disc.

    Solution: Compress the Video to Custom Ratio from 4,300 to 4,400MB's

    Hope this help.
