Ok, I'm sure that I'm not alone here amongst the n00b population that has some sort of DVD copying woes, and well this is mine.
I just purchased a Plextor 712A burner, and bought a 50pk of Philips +Rs to go with it from Tiger Direct. Up until now I was dumb enough to burn DVDs at full throttle, that is choose 8x on Nero 6 when burning on a +R that says 4X on it. Obviously though not so to me until now, the skipping problem was apparent and very severe for a stupid reason.
I have tried burning at 4X on the same Philips +Rs. Here's where the problem becomes interesting.
If the DVD movie does not surpass 2 hours in length, and so far on three different tries, the movie will play fine. Sometimes there might be an insignificant hesitation on the DVD player toward the end, but it's viewable for the most.
Right now I'm trying to burn a movie that's about 2:20 in length on a TDK -R 4X disc. I'm not sure what to expect, but I don't suspect that the occassional, if not more frequent skipping toward the end will cease.
What can I do to get rid of this symptom? I've burned many coasters at this point trying to figure it out, and I'm up in arms on what to do at this point. Your help is greatly appreciated.
