    I have a burned copy of getaway using memorex dvd-r and burned it using primo prassi on my toshiba 5200 laptop. I want to know right after the 3rd level it freezes at the loading window. Is there a reason why. Can it be fixed

    I also have 'The Getaway' as a backup and have played it through the point you speak of.

    2 possibilities for your problem:

    1. The origional disc is slightly damaged and the sectors of that damaged area were not copied properly, making a backup difficult.

    2. You burn was too fast, causing an error your burning software failed to detect.

    Solution: Clean the disc well and copy again at 1X from an image (not on the fly).


    Seek out a disc utility capable of possibly repairing any bad origional sectors on your image and try the reburn.

    P.S. When troubleshooting these types of problems (and they do arise) try using a RW disc until you get it write and then transfer to an +/-R to save cost overall.
