I have a bit of an odd problem. I am using version 18.104.22.168 and use the following settings:

Enable read ahead cache
Write Type of DVD-R Media
DVD 5 Size
DVD 9 Size
Overwrite, Setbook, Do not edject, and Verify are all unchecked
All options checked and region set to 1

Cell lasting longer than 300 Seconds
One VOBU for every 30 VOBUs
I am using a Liteon LH-16W1P with firmware SL08
I am using some class 2 Fujifilm DVD-Rs right now (I will be using Verbatims in the future.)
When I make backups of my movies, I can play them fine on my cheap little Symphonic SD200E DVD player manufactured by the Funai corp back in October 2004, and my Liteon burner.
If I try and play them on any other DVD drive, I normally can only play about 20 minutes of the disk and it will lock up. This happens on other PC systems also. I tried to copy the Video/Audio folders to the hard drive of a PC I was trying to watch one on and it gave me a CRC error.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to make any future disks more compatible with other drives/players?
Would switching to the Verbatim disks make that much of a difference in recording and computability?
Also, does anyone know of a portable DVD player that is burned disk friendly? I would rather the kids spill their juice boxes and rub their french fries on the backups that the originals
