I have been burning svcd's for a while now and have had this problem since day one, at first i thought it was my standalone but recently i got a new one and have the same problem.
i am burning w/ nero @ 24x, and 8x i just recently tested (with pioneer media). The first 30-40min or so of the cd is perfect, then it will start to skip, sometimes it will skip so much i gota throw it out and 'reburn' it and cross my fingers and hope it will play the next time.. (i can stick the same cd in my pc and it ALWAYS PLAYS PERFECTLY FINE)
If i continue to reburn the image, eventually it will play fine. Is this fault of my burner? i am burning images in dao mode, the imgages themself are perfectly fine (bitrate, etc)..
i have searched and noticed people blame this 'skipping at end' problem on burning too fast, but slowing it down didn't fix my problem..
Any other ideas?
