    Most likely you will continue to have problems off and on due to the fact that you're using older players. The new $39.99 ones will play anything.

    Stay with 2.4X and 4X -R media and you'll do better - stay away from any 8X media as your players won't be able to see them.


    Good luck,

    Pete
