Hi folks! I am a n00b on the forum, and I am seeking help on some issues I’ve been having when converting and burning movies to DVD format so I can watch on the TV (can’t stand watching things on the computer…).
I am using WinAVI 7.6 to convert (and merge subtitles) movies from .avi to DVD format, and using Nero to burn it to a disc.
Sometimes when I burn to DVD-R media, the movie skips (on some movies is more frequent, like the whole movie, than others when it happens far less times). When I use DVD-RW media, it happens more frequently. I am using a Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHz, 1Gb DDR2 RAM with a 7200rpm drive. Which part of the job is most likely to create this error? The converting or the burning?
Also, on some RW media, the DVD play stops recognizig the media, which means that it worked once or twice on that player, and after the third or fourth burn the DVD player won’t recognize it anymore. On that point, it is happening also to my DVD drive… after I use the disc a few times, the DVD drive stops recognizing it. It happened to DVD-RW Sony Accucore media and DVD-RW LG media as well. If it is the media, can anybody tell me what media is the best one to use? Also, which one is better, -RW or +RW?
A lot of questions, huh? Thanks!
