Audio/video freezes

[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung DVD VR375 - DVD recorder/ VCR combo. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello,

I back up my dvd movies with Clone DVD 2 and prepare them with AnyDVD.
I keep having problems with audio/video skips and freezes on playback through my player. I currently use Memorex dual layer (2.4x-8x)blanks. I have a Dell Inspiron computer(i530-111B) purcahsed in August of 2008. It is running vista home premium-64 bit OS and has a quad processor and 8 GB of Ram. Could anyone please shed some light on my issues as I have tried recording at different speeds and 99% of the backups turned out with errors? I do get a few that are error free, though!

Thanks so much.

Steve

Memorex discs aren’t very good and its more than likely there the cause of the problem, try using a Verbatim +R DL disc.

[B]Jedi[/B] is right, get better disc brand.

Verbatim is the only brand with consistent results and is the only recommended brand to use.

With that said, I’ve also had good luck lately with some TDK discs. At least with my current burner and I’ve only tested on my two standalone players.
