Angry "Jumpy" DVD-Rs ?!?

sponsored links

I've ripped DVDs to DVD-Rs using the prescribed method within this forum.

Everything seems to go well.

Here's what I'm using:

Pioneer A04 (burning at 1x speed)
Windows XP Pro
Nero v5.5.10.17b
Imation DVD-R media

What I've noticed is that at certain points during the movie ... the frame appears to 'freeze' for a few seconds and then either jump ahead (sometimes a few minutes ahead, sometimes more) or just freeze there with no response.

I know the files are good because the movie plays fine if I direct my DVD player program (WinDVD v4) to my HDD instead of my DVD Drive (Toshiba) for those files.

It's just when I burn them to DVD-R that I would get this problem. This problem is also intermittent - one DVD-R would work fine but the next one would not. What's got me confused is that I am using the SAME method to burn !

I've ripped enough DVDs (about 20) where I believe the problem is not the media.

Has anyone seem this problem ??? Is the problem my drive ???

Any help is appreciated.

The version of Nero that should be recommended is, although you probably won't get a lot of people recommending it. Most use dvddecrypter and RecordnowMAX, plus DVD2ONE or DVDshrink to transcode to the right size

Are you putting labels on your discs? Labels have been known to cause the problem you have listed.

I am not using labels.

Does it sound like a drive problem ???

I've even tried using DVDXCopy - but only once so far. The software seems to work but again I get jumpy frames towards the end of the first DVD. Other than that - it works.

Any other suggestions ???

What media are you using ?

I used to have this problem with cheaper media. Since switching to Riteks (2-300 disks back), I have never had this problem.

Try another media, before changing any software/hardware as this is easy to eliminate.

I have had this problem - but it seemed that my player was too hot... I had my Cable box sat on top of it - and this caused the machine to get very hot - and that is when it began to skip. This may be the cause for you as well. Since I moved the player on it's own - this issue has been resolved.
