That's Write DVD-R + Pioneer DVR-03

    Hello folks,

    I'm having problems with That's Write DVD and Pioneer DVR-03 drive. When I backup movies every now and then the playback will be jerky. Most of the backups will work OK, but 1/10 or 1/5 will be jerky especially in the beginning of the movie.

    I'm using Smartripper for the ripping, DVD2ONE for shrinking and Nero for burning. Anything I'm doing wrong?

    Ok, if you are using Smartripper, DVD2One, then Nero, where does this "That's Write" program come into play? I've personally never heard of it, and I use the other 3 programs to copy my DVD's. (Alright, I usually use DVDdecrypter to rip, but they are about the same.)

    Ok, I think I was a bit unclear in my first mail. That's Write is the brand of the blank DVD-R's I use.

    OK, that makes sense then.

    So some basic troubleshooting is all you need. Here's what I'd start with:

    (1) Try a different brand of media
    (2) Try the backups in another DVD player (a friend's for example)

    Tried it today with my friends player. Same thing. Playback jerky on the same DVD's as on my player. I have a Mivoc DVD-player (some clone, progressive scan). My friend has a basic Sony-player.

    I think I'm going to try different brand. But that's the weirdest thing, because most of the backups work. It's just every 5th or so that has a small problem. And it's just in the beginning of the movie...

    In my opinion it definitely sounds a media related problem.

    Ritek G03 £0:88 each , can't go wrong.

    I'm able to burn X2 using this disc although I don't bother for long movies...kept at X1 for extra reliabilty.Although if I was to burn a copy of a copy on-the-fly then X2 works 100%
    of the time.

    Pioneer DVD-RW 104
    Lite-On 165H DVD-Rom
    120Gb HDD Space
    -----------------
    Smatripper 2.41
    DVD Decrypter 3.1.6
    DVD2One 1.1.1
    Nero 5.5.10.20
    -----------------
    Datawrite Classic X2
    Ritek G03 (X2 for some users)
    Datsafe Media DVD-RW
    Bulkpaq Purple (rebranded Princo so it says in DVD Decrypter under ISO)
    -----------------
    Sony DVP-NS 305 (which is just an entry level player but has played everything I've put it's way)

    I agree with herbsman G03 is the best for the price IMHO.

    Yep, trying some other media next. Only problem is that I don't think we can buy Ritek here in Finland... :(

    Thanks whompus. You wouldn't believe the number of people who ask me "What about the other 8 types."
