    This is not an advanced question and one that has been asked and answered many hundred of times - try the search button at top of page for some answers.

    Problem invariably due to:
    1. Poor quality media - Ritek, Verbatim or TY's suggested.
    2. Burning too fast (max 4X suggested).
    3. The use of labels on burnt DVD's.
    4. Media incompatible with standalone player.

    Suggest try on other brand standalones - el cheapo Chinese players tend to be more tolerant of burned DVD's.

    Classic sign of inferior quality media. What brand of dvd did you burn to?

    If I were you, I'd get a copy of dvdinfopro and do a crc check on the media for read errors.

    I found that problem on some of my friends' DVD players, but on mine they play fine. This led me to believe that it was a compatibility issue. That's what I think your problem is, but it could also be inferior media.

    Hey junmeistr,when you survey those sony's, Look for Made in Japan on that label.These are a lot better than those sony's made in taiwan. I even had some sony's made in austria that I am afraid to burn.Those were given to me.

    That is the bad thing about most brand name media,different manufacturers for different format and spindle sizes.

    Maxell uses more reliable manufacturers and haven't let me down yet.They threw me for a loop this week when my local office depot had them $10 for 25 pack.These were ritekgo4's. My last 10 batches were mxlrg-02. I even know they sometimes slip in ty's every once in a while.Those were all on the -4x yellowtops.

    Now on the +4x maxell's,they all seam to code as ricohjpn01,still not too bad.

    That's why I look for Made in Japan on the label,japan makes the finest media.

    Just like cole posted,4x is par around here. When you get some high quality media,you may be able to raise that burn speed. The sony +1-8x,I can get 16x out of them and still look great in my stand alones.Those were made in Japan.

    Good luck on your media quest.

    Hey jun, paper labels are very bad. The most referred labels are thermal printable with the epson L-200 printer on printable media. This will be my next purchase.At the moment,the old sharpie will do.

    I have read many threads on people having trouble with paper-stick on labels. Peel them off with goo-gone and they usually work fine.

    And why are we unsurprised?

    The use of labels on burnt DVD's is probably the most common cause of playback problems on standalone machines (along with the use of poor quality media).

    Live and learn.
