DVD: Imation (CMC MAG AE1) DVD-R 8x (I’m not sure what speed I burnt them at, and the speed doesn’t seem to make a different to the result, see below)
Drive: Lite-on DVDRW sohw-1213s
Firmware: used to be TSO9, but updated to TSOJ
Program: DVDShrink (extracting and re-authoring)
Burn program: Nero
I was using Nero to burn (through DVD shrink which extracted the files), and it seemed to burn ok but when I would try and play it on the DVD player and DVD-Rom, the movie would play all pixelated and jumpy. I don’t think it is a DVD player issue, imo.
I have updated the firmware to TSOJ but I am still having this pixelation problem when I playback the DVD.
So I tried to burn a spare Base DVD+R x16 (CMC MAG M01) I had lying around (I think I burnt it at 6x speed at Nero’s recommendation), and it did get through the burning process, but really slow at about 1% every 10 minutes!
In the end I had to cancel since it was so slow, but what it did burn was still pixelated and lagging (the problem I had in the first place before updating the firmware).
I don’t know how to show details of the “burn report” since it did burn ok, so I didn’t have the option to save it.
What should I do?
Do I need to use a different extraction/burning program?
What’s the best freeware extractor program other than DVDShrink?
Should I use different media?
I don’t know too much about the burning process so any help would be appreciated. And if you need any more info just let me know. Thanks so much…
