I’ll start in with this, first post here, although I have been reading on this forum for quite some time, and have been burning / copying DVD’s for years, paid $300 for my first 2.4x burner and have been going at it ever since. In a nutshell, I’ve copied around 1000 movies, so I’m not exactly a newb at this.
But alas, for the last couple weeks I have been having some HUGE problems with all movies that I have copied. About 50% of them will just plain not load, the other 50% of them will play about 10 - 20 minutes into the film and then begin to chop up badly, eventually locking up the DVD player. I have tried these movies in four different DVD players, a newer JVC, an older JVC, XBox, and PS2. Same trouble on all of them. However they play fine on the computer that burned them, and the video files on the hard drive also play fine.
I have been using TDK media for a while now without any problems, but I have also tried HP blanks. Having the problem with both. Also have tried this on two different computers, same problems.
Running AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 in the background, using Shrink to rip / encode, and Nero 6.6 to burn. I have also tried using Roxio to burn, same problems. Also have tried using DVDFab to rip and DVD Decrypter.
Movies I burned in the past still play just fine on all of these players. All the movies I have ever burned have been on +R media, these included, and I have never had any issues with +R media.
The ones I have been fighting with recently are 40 year old virign, southpark season 7, cinderella man, lord of war, history of violence, mr and mrs smith, and eternal sunshine of the spotless mind just to name a few.
I’m at a complete loss here. About to buy a new burner and dvd player if nothing else presents itself.
Thank you all for the help
