    Hello everyone,

    I'm not sure if that is happening to anyone else but I just noticed recently that when playing movies on my Xbox with the DVD region Free (Dongle free)app that the movie freezes from time to time. It takes a long time for it to start playing again. Or I have noticed that it skips a few seconds. What could be the problem? Is it the Media or is my drive going?

    Thanks!

    My XBox will play Verbatim, TDK, Sony and Memorex ... that's all I've tested so far.

    They will not play any RW's and Princo :)

    [bold]Oh, one more thing ... the media has to be burned at 4x or slower. Doesn't like any media burned at 8x[/bold]
    _X_X_X_X_X_[small]Dell 8250, Pentium 4 2.80GHz

    NEC 2510A, Sony DDU-1612 DVD-ROM

    Okay thanks for everyones help!
    Back to the drawing board. I have used Verbatim in the past and they have worked. Funny thing they even were the DVDR-W kind.

    Thanks again!
