DVD stalls



Most of the time when i copy a DVD movie i have the problem that the end of the movie (last 10 to 20 minutes) the movie keeps on stalling or it jumps a few minutes forwards does anybody now what to do :sad:


That often happens when the media (discs) are at fault, although it could be something else (like burn speed, sometimes).

Can you download DVD Identifier, or CD-DVD Speed, pop one of your backups in, and tell us the MID info of the disc?



what the f*** is mid info


You might try to be a little more friendly when people are trying to help you :wink:

The MID (Manufacturer ID) is info, stored on the disc, which tells you who made it.

We need that info.


i hope you meen this info:

OK, thanks, that’s exactly what I was looking for!

You see where it says Manufacturer ID : [INFODISC]
Media Type ID : [R20]

Basically it means changing the discs you use, since Infodisc media isn’t known for being good quality. I’m fairly sure that’s what the problem is.

Buy some Verbatim, or if you can buy online, Taiyo Yuden discs. You don’t say where you are, but if you’re in the US, the Bargain Basement forum here has loads of good deals for US folk.


Thanks for the info i will try verbatim
by the way I come from the netherlands
