First how can i find out what firmware i have on my dvd burner!?
Second my problem
Situation had this for many months guessing 4 to 6 months.
Burned about 100 dvd-rs from memorex to princos.
Recenly bought 100 princos paper labled. they came in 2 spindles 50 in each.
Before I bought princos buy just white labeled with the plastic transparent coating on the surface so it requires a sharpy to write on them.
These are paper labeld types which can use anything to write it on it.
I still use a sharpy.
The first 50 dvds burned just fine
The 2nd spindle problems. Using Nero 6 to burn them and they burn just fine according to Nero. Nothing avoided or corrected burnt at 4x. As they are 4X DVD blanks. AnyHOW. I put them in my dvd player and usually at the end of the movie it starts to freeze up until it comes to a scene where it just freezes up and stays there.
I tried burning from 4x to 2x to 1x. All the same thing soemtimes less worse but still a lot of freezing.
I did run one test where i burned the same ISO movie to a memorex dvd-rw 2x and it burned fine and i watched it and the ending didnt freeze.
It seems the same iso burned on the dvd-r princo paper lable freezes up.
I originally thought my burner taking a shyte or my apex 3disk dvd changer taking a shit.
I think now its the media that is crap. I am wondering if new firmware will solve my issue or do i have 50 blank dvds that are going to be all coasters!?!?!
One small note. I burned a movie out of those 50 and it played fine. NOw it seems to start freezing at the ending. I watched it again freezed up at a earlier point, watched it again froze up even quicker.
what should I do???
P.s. for those that will tell me to either light my computer or burner on fire or throw it out the window. THIS IS NOT A OPTION!
