My DVP-642 is not being consistent when it comes to the media I use. My preferred brand is ProdiscF01, usually I buy them from bestbuy.com labeled as FujiFilm. Anyway, I've always had good results with this brand @2x. My Liteon 411S won't burn them at 4x.
The one thing I can't get it to play is MCC 01RG20 labeled as Verbatim DVD-R I got from bestbuy. It refuses to play these discs, it says loading, then it ejects. I bought a 100 pack of these, and it's most aggravating. I was wondering if there's anything I can do to resolve this.
Recently I upgraded my 411s to 811s and am able to burn the ProdiscF01's @ 8x now. I get mixed results when I attempt to play these in my 642. I burned about 15 movies @4x and it seems only half of them will even load in the 642, the other half it ejects. The ones that load, play just fine, the whole way through. I took one of the movies and played it in my other player, it skips and glitches like crazy. I re-burned the same movie @2x...same thing. So....
1) Is there a way I can my the 642 to play the Verbatims I mentioned above?
2) How can I go about getting more consistent results burning ProdiscF01's @4x?
