    When copying a movie on my Sony DVd RW the PC plays the movie back great, however, neither of my DVD players can play the movie without long pauses between a couple of frames as if the pause is being applied between frames. I copy to 1x-2.4x DVD+R.

    Throw that crap in the garbage and get some good quality DVD media. You will find your issues solved :)

    Thanks for your advice, but how do I know qaulity from crap while buying in bulk? Can you steer me to a supplier or tell me what to look for when buying on line?

    KT4GT ,
    Go to www.rima.com or www.Newegg.com or www.meritline.com

    Look for Verbatim blank media. I think Rima will even send you out 1-2 disks for you to try free of charge. You might tell all 3 sites what brand and model # of burner you have and then use their recommendation on what media to use

    Hi,

    Buying Online
    Taiyo Yuden (genuine TY’s there are fakes out there so beware)
    Ritek G04 brand these would be the x4 disks again beware of fakes
    Prodisc 2nd class media, but newer media x8 seems to work well for people

    Buying at the store (Best Buy, Office Depot, Wal-Mart ect.)
    Fuji film – Manufactured by Taiyo Yuden, MCC, Ricoh Japan, Prodisc, Fuji Film all fairly good manufacturers
    Maxell – Manufactured by Maxwell, Ritek, RicohJapan, Taiyo Yuden
    TDK – Manufactured by TDK, Ritek, RicohJapan, Maxwell, MCC, CMC Beware of the CMC brand
    Verbatim – MCC, CMC, TY, RicohJapan, Ritek again beware of CMC which it seems Verbatim is using more frequently lately.

    Note: A good rule of thumb when purchasing your media in the store is to look for “made in Japan or Singapore” stay away from “made in Taiwan or Hong Kong” When buying online always try and get “Branded” media this way you can be sure you are getting the genuine article. There is an exception to that rule and it would be Taiyo Yuden disks. You just need to buy from a reputable dealer when buying online. Here are a few I have bought from with good experience. Of course it isn’t going to be the same for everyone.

    Supermediastore.com – Rated number 1 just about anywhere you look.
    Rima.com – Fast and cheap good service
    Mertline.com – Little slower on shipping, but quality media

    Ones you should stay clear of
    Shop4tech.com – Let’s just say you get what you pay for.. I received fake TY’s from them
