    I know excactly how you feal.
    I have been backing up my movies for about 2 years.
    Using DVD FAb , DVD decrypter,DVD Shrink, burn with NERO.
    This past year my expensive Pioneer Elite players are only playing about 75 % of the movies. They either want play at all or freeze and stutter during play back.
    And one of the players is new.
    However they play the orginal dvd fine.
    I can take the same backup dvd, the one that Elite player has trouble with, and it will play fine in any one of several budget players that I have tried.
    Talk about frustrating!
    I am using Verbatim dvd-r
    I used to use dvd +.
    I am not sure what to do.
    Good luck,

    Whats you're burn speed?

    Remember DON'T burn above 8x and try 4x or 6x if you're having problems. also make sure you are running the latest firmware update for the drive/burner, check here


    you're media is fine unless you got a bad batch or try some Taiyo Yudens

    Thanks for info.
    I always burn at slowest speed possible.
    But I have not upgraded the firmware in this burner.Thats a good ideal.
    Still yet, it always seems that the cheap dvd players will play anything.
    That is what I don't understand.
    And I have used 3 differnet dvd burners, 2 SONY and 1 LITE-ON
    on 3 different PC's.
    And the player I have just bought is a DV-79avi Pioneer Elite.
    It even states on the box that it plays dvd-r,
    It should have stated "plays most dvd-r"
    btw: I apolgize if it seems I have hijacked this thread, I was just
    trying to vent my frustration also.

    jwalk2c, you will want to make sure the firmware is updated to handle the newer 16x speed media

    Thought I'd piggy-back onto this thread rather than start a new one.

    I just the other day upgraded my copy of ConvertXtoDVD to the latest version (2.2.2.x), burned a few discs, and now it takes forever (up to a couple of minutes) for my standalone DVD player (regionfree Pioneer DV-490V) to load/recognize discs burned using this latest version. Any discs burned prior to the software upgrade load immediately.

    Has anyone else encountered this problem? (Strangely, tho, I have a little all-in-one TV w/built-in DVD player in which the discs burned with the upgrade load immediately.)

    I am using the same media as before (Verbatim DVD-R) and burning at 2x.

    (My only other thought is that I need some type of firmware upgrade for my DVD player in order for it to see the discs, but thought I'd start at the "easy" end of things first.)

    Thanks for any thoughts!
