Hey everybody, I am not a newbie at backing up dvds by far but I am running into a strange problem. First I will say to all those DVDXcopy fans to hang it up. I am now going through my library of backups and getting rid of any movie I backed up with Xcopy and doing it over with Shrink. My problem is that over the weekend I went back and watched two of my backup movies and they started to skip and act crazy. Its funny because I played them about a month ago and they played fine. Now they don't play good on any dvd player. I watch them and they play good about half way through and then start to skip. I take them out of the player and wipe the disc with windex and stick it back in and it seems to skip worst. Is using Windex wrong/is it messing the tracks up? Am I not letting it dry enough. One of the movies I used Xcopy and the other I used Shrink. I also use Ritek DVD-Rs. My second question is: does the Ritek disc erode or playback decay after awhile? Thanks afterdawn fam.
