First time post..not so much a newbie, but def not a advanced user. Have a Sony DRU-710A Getting freezes and pixilization with DVD movie backups. I know about the media issue..started with Memorex - they were horrible. Went to TDK's a little better, out of 25 probably got 10 good backups. So, I said let me go with the best, bought Taiyo Yudens- 8x I belive they are TY02 Same problems...have tried six of them and all freeze or pixilate!!! From what I have read these are great disks.. Tried different software, Nero, Shrink and Dycryptor and even anyDVD...same problems with all software.. I prefer Shrink and Deycryptor...and I have set size to 4300... Can't figure it out.... Have been through about 50-60 Discs with not much luck. Ready to give up or buy some Verbatims as a last effort. Could it be the burner? The media? Any ideas????
