    This is my second Pioneer dvd player. My first DV-37 did fine for a couple years using shrink and dvd decrytper. But it started to frezing and stuttering in some movies.
    I thought it was the player.
    I upgraded and to a DV-79 and it is worse.
    What is really frustrating is DVD's will play in a cheap $50 buck dvd player, tried several differnt ones.
    So I know they do play.
    But why want they play all the way through in a $500 player.
    Is Pioneer so sensitive?
    Plays orginal dvd fine, but only about 75 % of my back-up's play till end.
    I am using dvd fab, free version to rip.
    I us SONY dvd burner. Two differnt SONY models, in 2 different computers. Same results.
    Nero to burn
    I have used Verbatim media since the early days of dvd decrypter.
    Any advice will be much appreciated.
    My kids love to carry dvd's to there friends and I would rather they
    use the back-ups.
    And I would rather use the back-ups.
    Much more conviennt.
    And btw, the back-ups are not scratched.
    These problems happen on first play.
    Thanks again'

    jwalk2c ,
    If your burner can burn (+) Verbatim DVD's then try that. You really are having a DVD Compatibility problem w/ the Player and the blank media. If it was my player I would carry it back and stick w/ the cheaper ones
