Ok Iâ€™m going to try to give you as much info as possible so please bear with me.
Iâ€™m ripping DVDâ€™s with DVD Decrypter and then compressing them and burning them with DVD Shrink and the Nero plug-in.
Up until last week I was using Fuji brand DVD-R blank DVDâ€™s. They would not play on my Toshiba DVD player at all but would play on my Playstation 2 just fine.
Last week I bought a pack of Memorex DVD-Râ€™s and these are giving me problems. They play on my Playstation 2 and my Toshiba DVD player but they are extremely buggy. They could play for 5 minutes or 20 but at some point they start skipping, the picture starts exhibiting pixilation and will eventually start jumping all over the disk. If I stop the machine and begin playback again it will play for a while but over time I think the laser begins getting more and more off track.
So, my questions are these.
If I slow down the burn speed do you think I will get a better quality DVD with less playback problems?
Do you think I should just switch back to Fuji and not frustrate my self anymore with this?
I would much rather playback on my Toshiba since the colors are better and the sound is louder than playback on my Playstation, does anyone know of a blank DVD brand that works with the software Iâ€™m using and a Toshiba DVD player.
Thanks in advance and when I get home from work Iâ€™ll post the exact model number of my Toshiba.
