I have no idea what is going on. I have a pioneer dvr-108, use dvd decrypter and dvd shrink (target size 4350). I have jvc xv s-500 and panasonic dvd a-120 standalones. I have tried prodisc dvd-r 4x, fuji dvd-r 8x and TY dvd-r 8x. (I ran each disc through dvd identifier and they all appear as such.) Why are the burned dvds still skipping? They don't start skipping till about 45 mins into the movie but once it starts it continuously skips till the end. It doesn't freeze up and stop, which they did before when the target size was set at the default of 4686. So the target size change did 'improve' it if you can call it that. Do I need to set the target size lower or is there something else I need to do? I don't think buying other dvd-rs would mjake a difference at this point, will it??? Please help!
