Ok, this is weird. I have about 40 burns of backups I've made of my kids movies. When we buy a new movie, I typically make a copy and use the copy, saving the original. The kids have a habit of destroying discs quickly.
I have a Sony DVD player, capable of playing all format of DVDs. The DVD burner is a 1673S running the latest firmware (JS0D I believe, but not sure, I'm not at home). The media is Verbatim DVD+R 16x (95033) discs, and a few others I used to use. The Bit Type is DVD-ROM
All of a sudden, the player has stopped playing these discs. When playing, it just freezes and various times and can't continue. Regular production DVDs still play fine in the DVD player. I tried making new copies, and it's still doing it with the new ones. I guess it's possible it's the player, but if players are as finnicky as I'm experiencing, this seems to be more of a pain than it's worth.
Is there a way to test out the discs to know if something is going wrong with the burn? Should I run something and post it here?
Thanks everyone, I'd like to get this resolved so I can avoid having the kids use the real discs, and I'd hate to think the DVD player is hosed all of a sudden. It's a fairly new machine.
