I am using nero to burn CDRS not dvds. Ive used numerous data burning software, and some play fine (for example, the new indiana jones) worked just fine, but, most others freeze at the same point. I have been burning slower, and, the one i made i used power iso and made a standard data disc and it worked fine.
any other ideas? again, the discs do work, but usually freeze anywhere between 12 and 25 minutes in, as if its trying to skip to the next chapter, when their shouldnt be any chapters because its burned as a data disc, and somtimes i can hit next on the remote and it skips to about 30 minutes in, and if it does skip ahead, it almost always works the rest of the way through with no problem. But if im watching a movie ive never seen, to have to skip from 12 minutes in to 30 minutes in really ruins the plot.
Should i convert the avi files to a divx file? is there a difference in the two? The dvd player is great, anything (like concerts etc) filmed in HD actually do upscale to 1080 hd and look crystal clear. Even wrestlemania 24, the offical dvd, not the blue ray disc, still upconverted to hd and i could hardly tell a difference in the two.
Other specs - im running a philips dvd player/receiver, with divx built in, with surround sound, hooked directly into my tv with an hdmi cord. Tv is 42 inch philips ambilight tv. computer is hp laptop and ive used windows media player, nero, divx and had the same problem with all. ive used power iso and had one not mess up but then the next one did.
Maybe dvd player? I sure hope not, i have no problems at all playing any real dvd, any burnt dvd, anything, just having this slight problem putting them onto cdrs and playing using nero
