Dvd compatibility issues...

Hi, Im having a lot of problems with dvds i burn using pioneer dvd -111 drives. The dvds al play fine in my computer, and on my seperate £35 philips dvd player bought a year ago. However a lot of my clients that i produce the dvds for have problems with the dvds, where they skip, freeze, and generally dont play. It seems they also seem to deteriotate, in that they wil play for the first few times and then start to get worse to the point where you cant watch them. I am at a loss as what to do, they work for me when i send them out, so how can i make dvds that are good for everyone. I record the master at 4x speed, on to verbatim dvd-r discs, though my multi burner records at quicker speeds than this. Should i always record at 4x. should i be using dvd+r? is one format better than the other? Would very much appreciate any help anyone can give. Thanks Steve Jay

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop with an NEC DVD+-RW ND-6650A CD/DVD reader/writer. Also using Showbiz DVD2 to burn backups of VHS tapes I can create single layer DVDs fine. However, when I try to...

how long is the whole process of burning the dual layer dvd's
your computers hard drive might be getting to hot
try blowing out all of the dust from your laptop computers keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of unforseen problems with a computer and its parts
also you might buy a laptop usb 3 fan cooler pad just to keep things cool/er
you might check the leads ((motherboard to hard drive)) they might be bad/faulty
hope this helps

DVD Burning

Well first of all, as far as have been informed, making backup copies of dvds is illegal. But im not here to critisize you. Your discs that you are copying the movie onto might not be big enough to hold the file. And your laser in your computer might not also be up to the challenge. There should not be any problems with any discs, but you may want to try using standard dvds, not rewritable dvds.

Hope this helps :)

Playing PC DVD roms problem

Dvd drives can read from both DVD and CD however due to technological limitations most DVD-ROM or RAM read up to slightly higher speeds for CDs than DVDs.

When burning DVDs professional companies that make prerecorded disks burn their disk at low speeds in an effort to achieve both compatibility and low errors, that is the reason their DVDs play on most DVD-ROMs. However DVDs me and you burn at home and work at high speeds are prone to errors and incompatibility with low reading speed drives.

As a result if your DVD-ROM has a low maximum reading speed then it can only read those prerecorded DVDs and only DVDs recorded at low speeds provided thre are not scratched.

I believe you managed to read those DVD movies if they were pre recorded.

DVD R burnt by pioneer drive couldn't be read by itself.

If there were compatability issues with the disc it would have been unable to burn to the dvd initially, the problems you mention are a sign that the reading in the dvd is failing and there's never a solution for problems as these, as it means that a replacement is needed, as the dvd writer arent worth repairing. I had the same thing exactly, but after a while it wouldnt even acknowledge that i had a writable dvd in the drive, but was ok with cd's. I think it is down to poor quality lasers, so as to keep the dvd writer prices down.
