    Hi,
    i´m having a trouble when makinng backups from my dvds when i play them on pc they look great but when i go to my dvd stadnalone player it shows some scenes pixelated.
    Why is that?
    i´m on a pentium 2.4ghz, 512 ram with geforce video card.
    i have a LGgsa-4160b dvd burner, LG711 and Precission PVD528s standalone dvd players.
    i use ridata blank dvds

    and i´m using dvd ripper to get the dvd content to pc, clone dvd to strech the video content to dvd5 and burn the dvd back up.

    i already read a message about the quality of the cds and the probles that they can make... so its just about dvd blank quality? or there are something that i can fix?

    Thanks in advice for any help

    Hi -

    Sounds like a media problem, but you might also try ensuring that all your unnecessary background processes/applications are disabled on your PC when you're burning.

    I've had similar problems, but mine were to do with either a) rubbish media or b) using DVD X Copy Xpress (which is crap, I don't care what anyone says).

    Since I switched to a combination of DVD Shrink & DVD Decrypter I've only had poor media to contend with.

    Hope this helps.

    i use ritek G04 and usually y burn them at 4x.

    and as i told before the problem is with the standalone players, the dvd backups plays well on pc.

    i think that is a prob of the burning process, but i used nero and clonecd for burn and i got similar pixelated scenes with both.
    for now i´ll try to close al backbroun applicattions and reduce the burnung speed.

    if there are another sugestion please tell me

    Ya try burning at 2x. Some stand-alone players can be a little picky and the burners can read their own writing overlooking some write errors the stand-alone can not. It could still be a media issue. I think G04s are becoming a little inconsistant lately. My last batch I had to burn at 2x and it was still no guarantee (same problem as you).

    Some other things to check:
    Remove adware, spyware.
    Defrag hdd.
    Update firmware.
    Shutdown background processes.

    ok i´ll try to do that,

    thanks for your help!

    so, what about comercial applications like pinnacle instant copy, intervideo dvd copy? they could help to optimize results on burning process?
