I have an NEC 3500A DVD burner and am using cheap 8x DVD+Rs (with Budget written in them!). My video files are in .IFO, .BUP, .VOB format on my hard disk. I'm using Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator 5.x to burn. The burn (usually!) completes OK but the movie freezes (for up to 15 seconds) at numerous places during playback. I've read so much about ASPI layers, bad media, etc. I don't where my problem lies. Can anyone help me to produce DVD+Rs that I can actually watch. I've already got enough coasters to open a bar!
