NO! NO! NO! You have it all wrong! I am not trying to BURN anything! I am trying to WATCH a DVD movie! I can watch 3/4 of it but that is about it! I have emailed the guy I bought one from off of ebay and he is going to send me another DVD, so hopefully this one will work! Here are my specs though:
System Specs: ATX generic case with Power Tech 500 watt- switching power supply. ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard. Western Digital 7,200 RPM 40 gig IDE Hard Drive.(FAT 32- file system) AMD Athlon XP 2600 processor.(standard fan and heatsink-Thoroughbred Core-standard speed-NO OVERCLOCK) 1 gig of Samsung DDRAM(PC 2700- 333 mhz....2-512mb sticks running in dual channel mode).eVGA Ti 4200 video card (128 mb of memory-8x AGP) (8x is enabled on motherboard). Soundblaster Audigy 2 sound card. Motorola sb 5100 cable modem (Insight Communications-Cable Connection) Sony DRU 500 AX DVD- RECORDER.(records -R/-RW or +R/+RW and CD-R formats-4x-24x-4x) LG 52x32x52 CD Burner. Zip 100 internal drive and a generic 3.5 floppy drive. Windows XP Professional Operating System. I also have a bearpaw scanner, HP Deskjet 3520 inkjet printer and a KDS X Flat 17 inch CRT monitor.
I am using the Sony DVD recorder and using Power DVD to view it. BUT....I also have tried it on my home DVD player and get the SAME RESULT on the last three chapters! Personally, I am beginning to think the DVD is just plain bad!
