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.

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
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.
1. Completely remove any dvd/cd player/burner softwares (i.e. Nero, Power DVD, etc.).
2. Go to device manager and remove your DVD/CD device from the device list
3. Restart you laptop
4. Windows will then try to reinstall the device drivers again for the DVD drive.
5. After another restart, then reinstall your dvd softwares again.
Imy burner will burn if I go into MY COMPUTER than into MY E drive but the auto burn will not work. I do have 1dvd click and ashampoo on the computer as well, but when I put a disc into the computer it will not automtically work. I was wondering if the above programs are stopping the auto play on it or what? The burner works fine if I go to the E drive and install o burn it that way, is there some kind of a setting or something that went out of wack??
you have a very sought after dvd player there.
people are paying a lot of money for these.
They Only support DVD- Disks. DVD-R/RW DVD-ROM. DVD- Video. If you are trying to Read Any DVD+ Formats, they,re not compatable with this Drive.
Hope this answers your problem.
Mike @ compurepair.
p.s recommend A Pioneer 111-112 Drive, reads most formats.
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.
have you been using constent bitrate or verable bitrate and which program are you using to encode your dvd's do a test dvd with 6000 and do another at differant rates I use Ulead Movie Factory to do my dvds and use vairable bitrate as the movies are in vairable and also the regioncode for your burner has to be set for good burns as I'm in uk my dvd burner is set to region 2 and I've had no problems with dvd buning and playing on other dvd player.
hope this works out for you
