[QUOTE=toaddub;2171351]What kind of edit are you doing? Please be specific. Are you hiding a block in the middle of the movie?[/QUOTE]
Thanks for the quick reply, toaddub. The two edits that the Sony stumbles on were “cut to here” edits. However, there are other “cut to here” edits that the Sony handles with no problem. Plenty of hidden blocks, but no problems with the Sony handling them.
[QUOTE=toaddub;2171351]To narrow down the stuttering problem, try to export the whole disc with no modifications and play in the software player. [/QUOTE]
Hmmm… not exactly sure what you mean. By “software player,” do you mean software player on the computer, like ShowTime or Windows Media Player, vs. the Sony dedicated player? The disc already plays fine in WMP, and ShowTime is so buggy I don’t trust it.
As far as the Sony goes, I would have to burn the exported files to a disc to play them. The original disc is a DVD9 disc, and without editing, it won’t fit onto a DVD5 disc. So I don’t think I can play the exported whole disc with no modifications on the Sony player.
[QUOTE=toaddub;2171351]Sony player is known to be very picky. The stuttering could be due to media quality, firmware not up-to-date, the burn speed, and the burning software used.[/QUOTE]
Thanks. I’ll look into this. I’m using Maxell DVD+R media, burning with Nero Burning ROM 9.04d, at “fastest” burn speed. Maybe I’ll slow it down and try with a different brand of media. Also I’ll check the firmware version on the Sony.
