I bought this recorder a few weeks ago to replace an Apex dvd recorder. I have a few DVD +Rs that I had finalized on the Apex recorder and although I can play the DVDs on the dmr es25, the video stops playing back every 5.00 minutes and jumps to the next title on the DVD. Upon further scrutiny, I found that the entire recording has been divided into several titles and each title into several chapters each 5.00 minutes long. During normal playback, the video stops at each of the chapter ends and does not seamlessly transition into the successive chapter, but jumps to the next title, which more often than not is a different movie. The DVDs are useless now and I am at the verge of losing my collection of Cary Grant movies! Can someone please help? Any suggestions will be truly appreciated.
