Gigabyte Dual DVD Bad Writing Quality

I have a Gigabyte GO-W040A DVD+/-RW and for some movies, after about 30-45 minutes, the picture quality gets continually worse by being blocky and jittery. This happens on a Haaz stand alone DVD Player, but is fine in standard DVD-ROMs. I use either Princo or Laser -R Media.

Has anyone else had this problem? I’m pretty sure the problem is the pathetic write quality of the Burner. I also use CloneDVD 2 to backup movies.

Any help would be great


Princo is often extremely poor media. I don’t recognise the other media you mention - DVDINFOPro should help identify it (post the media code, which will be something like PRINCO or TYG01).

This could be a media related problem - you can’t get good recordings on garbage media.
