I'm using mactheripper, DVDRemaster, and the newest version of toast. After ripping and recompression, the VIDEO_TS folder will play on my computer, but when I burn it to a RITEK DVD-R It no longer plays relialbly, skipping and freezing to the point that the DVD is unwatchable. I've successfully backed up numeruos DVDs with my set-up before doing exactly the same as I'm doing now, it just won't work with this movie (Akira). I tried re-decrypting and re- compressing it from the original DVD and this didn't work either. Another strange thing, when I do it the long way, (using DVD Imager and then burning the resulting .IMG file with disk utility) it plays just fine. So why does a copy of toast that will succesfully burn other DVDs fail with this one? Any suggestions?
