    I burn my home DVD movies using Ritek media, which has been great [found that tip on this site]; I use DVD Shrink on a Win XP machine, P4 2.8, 2GB DDR, 2 U320 SCSI drives, and a Sony DRU-700....
    Anyway, the movies play fine, but sometimes, towards the end of the movie, it starts freezing, jerking, audio goes, and generally fails.
    My question is, is this probably the DVD player ? I try to make sure I shut down anything not needed, disconnect from the network, etc, when I burn the DVD's. This has only happened on about 4 copies out of around 80 so far, and I don't suspect the media.
    Any comments appreciated. If I haven't provided sufficient info, please let me know. I did a search, but could come up with nothing exactly like this problem.

    Must have been a really comprehensive search.

    Appears to me than virtually every second post on this forum is related to skipping/freezing and playback problems.

    Most common reasons are:

    1. Poor quality media
    2. Labels used on burnt media.
    3. Burning at too high a speed (4x recommneded).
    4. Burning too close to the edge of the media - reduce target size.
    5. Sensitivity and age of standalone unit.
    6. DMA not enabled.
    7. Inability to read and understand guides.
    8. Operator malfuction.
