Hi there, I was wondering if I could get some help with a burnt DVD issue. I have burnt a few DVDs as backups because I like to keep my collection in good condition and the strange problem is that they work on one of my standalones but not on others.
I am burning them with a Sony DVD-RW which is a DW-23A on the only firmware seemingly available for it that I have found and the media is Datawrite Titanium DVD-Rs (Manufacturer ID: CMC MAG. AE1). One of the DVDs is a straight title rip onto a new disc and the other includes menus with some titles removed to fit onto a single layer disc.
I am burning with Nero and have tried making the DVDs into ISOs and using ImgBurn but it makes no difference on what program or speed I use to burn with.
I have a Pioneer DV-490V in one room which plays the burnt DVDs just fine every time. In another room I have a Sharp CDDVD-500 which will play the DVDs but they will skip every 10 seconds or so. I also have a Sony DVP-NS305 as a tester and this will either not play the DVDs at all or playback will be very choppy and usually freeze shortly into the film. They work OK on the Xbox 360 and on an old Alba DVD player they will usually get to the menu before screwing it up completley forcing a reboot of the player.
So what is going on? Is it the media, the burner, the software, the player?
Please any help is appreciated, thank you.
