    I'm a total n00b when it come to DVD-R burning. I copied a DVD onot my DVD-R using Nero, and it reads fine on the computer but has some dvd player problems. First off, at the menus, the cursor's locations appear eitehr off-screen or in the wrong place. Second, when it plays, the screen is too low and flashes random colors. What do I do?

    Joobot - welcome to the forums.

    As a former newbie - I highly recommend using the third tab above "Guides" - picking one that applies to your situation - and following it exactly first.

    Hmmm never heard of your situation what program where you using to copy your DVD just nero? How did you rip the movie? Is it a movie from Hollywood or something you downloaded? Need more information.

    Their just VOBs BUPs and IFOs. Again, it runs on a DVD player, just with some problems. I'm using Nero, so what settings other than the defaults do I hav to set?

    try a slower writing speed 1 or 2x and dont multitask while reading or writing. when u burn on ur comp make sure thats all ur doin. turn off security and background programs that usually run constantly.
