I have been trying to backup some of my DVD movies and kept getting disks that would skip on playback, usually towards end of movie, in mutiple players. I have a LiteOn SOHW-812s. I have been using dvd decrypter, dvd shrink, Nero 6 or CloneDVD. Media is Memorex DVD+R 8x and Imation DVD+R 4x. I just recently tried a firmware upgrade(from US0J to US0Q) on the drive. I got the upgrade from this site. I currently have the power to the drive disconnected, because after the flash(which had said was successful) all my computer does is reboots into windows, detect new DVD drive and restarts and continues to do so over and over.
Is the media i am using part of the problem??
I would greatly appreciate any help i could get.
