Does anyone know the cause of this? I’ve compressed the DVD using DVD-shrink and then burned it with Nero, but when I play the DVD in my player I noticed that the last 2-3 tracks skip a lot until the player rejects the DVD? This doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s already happened a few times.
Are you burning at the rated speed on media? Have you tried burning at lower speed? Yes, bad media is usually the culprit, unless you got firmware hacking happy like some people and screw up the writer.
Actually, if I’m not mistaken, it will only allow me to burn at 2.4x. I think I tried to lower it to 1x, but there wasn’t any option. As far as the firmware goes, all I remember doing is going to the HP website and I downloaded and installed a firmware update, so I’m guessing that should be good.
[ul]2.4x is the slowest speed a +r disk can be wriiten to.
If its a genuine HP firmware and its for the right drive then there should be no problems there.
I’d put this down to media (DVD discs) being the culprit as it seems to be burning the discs ok so its not a firmware problem, try getting hold of some Tanyo Yuden, MCC(verbatim “my personal choice”), or Ricoh and see if this cures your problem.
