I burn copies for the car of my kids movies, some will play great, some will skip and freeze. I am using Memorax and burning at a slow speed. I have tried several different batches incase I just got a bad batch. Anyone else have this problem?

Re: Best Media to use for DVD playback
The laser eyes on mobil units are relatively cheap and low quality. If you keep playing copied discs(any format), it will make them "tired"(out ot alignment) from trying to focus on low quality encoded discs and render it useless. Original discs are produced with equipments and programs that cost ten of thousands of dollars that why they tend to retain the encoded info longer even when exposed to direct sun light for times and easier for unit to read. But if you are like the rest of us going to junk that player after a couple of years in service then use Verbatim Platinum dvds, they are quite high in prices but retain info much better than others. But remember they are still copied discs not the original articles and might one day cause your players to fail completly. Goodluck.

it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
The best way to play burned movies is to copy them onto a memory stick or external hard drive then copy them onto the ps3 i use this method and find the movies play in much higher quality than dvd-r or+r or whatever discs you use
It most likely has something to do with the way set top players store certain things in memory. have you ever noticed that if you pop a dvd out while watching then put it right back it, that it will resume? try putting another dvd in then putting the picture dvd in and see what happens.
Is the image preponderantly encoded in PAL? Majority PAL and some NTSC? Or fully NTSC? Used transcoding presets? Transcoded project before you built to DVD? Note: Always run "TEST" before burning (to save plastic trees)? Determined whether system or project is faulty? Tested the DVD drive? Tried burning using another application? Closed all background-running resource hogs and applications? Did the project size increase the capacity size of the disk? Used a lower write speed? Disabled startup items and services? DMA: enabled? Updated Windows? Media compatibility? System requirements attained? Updated your application? Solved the issue(s); then write it down and share it with others. Still having issues? Revert back to the computer's factory settings and rebuild, upgrade, or invest in a high-end system and buy the full version of Nero 9, with all the plug-in features....and so forth. If time is money, the latter solution is your best bet. If money is an issue, then it requires trench warfare - that is, much research, deductive reasoning and time investment to isolate your specific problem...start by analyzing your source, and then your target...cause/effect relationship...you'll conquer all problems, eventually...political machinations aside. Ye all be happy computing Chomskyites. Dr. Frank Kohnstein.
What program are you trying to use to play these movies? Windows Media Player will play some, but not others - I highly recommend Nero, WinDVD, PowerDVD or similar programs.
Question - are you able to browse the contents of the DVD drive in My Computer? Even if the movie doesn't play, you can still see the files (there will be an AUDIO_TS and a VIDEO_TS folder, which a bunch of VOB files under the latter).
If you can see the files, but movies won't play, you just need the appropriate DVD playback software.
sometimes nero after burning dvds ,they want play on certain dvd players,, could be the format the movie was in ,, . why dont you download magic dvd copier,, itll copy any dvd,, they will play on any dvd,,goodluck
Read here and we can see that other people have both trouble and success running back ups on this device:
So... That tells us this device is finicky IE it requires a high quality burn.
DVD burners have varying levels of accuracy. To improve your burn:
-SLOW the burn speed for increased accuracy
-USE DVD-R only as it is the most compatible
-Use those Sony's DVD-r's at wal-mart or KMART because Sony makes DVR's and everyone else buys them from generic Taiwan manufacturer and relabel
I bet this will solve your problem. After you get a successful burn at 2x try 4x then 6 etc.
