Specs/detailed info first:
I have a dell inspiron 1521 notebook (bought it about 3 months ago)
it has windows vista home premium 32bit
pbds dvd ±RW DS-8w1p ata device (the dvd burner it has)
I bought 50pack Verbatim DVD+R discs made by DataLifePlus.
I am trying to back up my dvd movies into my computer hard drive, and making new dvd copies of the movies, so that I can put away the originals.
My goal is to use the dvd burned copies to play them on my dvd player attached to my TV.
dvd players I have (are 2):
Ok, well I hope thats enough specs, if its not then pls let me know what else to put up.
Ok, so Im able to transform the dvd movie into a iso. I even play the iso in daemon tools and it plays just fine, nice quality nice sound and very smooth.
So i use imgBurn to burn the iso to a blank dvd (verbatim +R) and the burn is successful. However, when i play the dvd on the tv, it plays fine but it will get really choppy and even laggy, and just get worse and worse until it freezes at some point in the movie. For another movie, the burned dvd would just freeze at some point, even though it was playing fine.
I have also tried to play these dvd’s in my notebook, but the same problems occur. So in my opinion is the burned dvd’s that are bad, meaning a bad burn job. Well, it could be many other things, so I’m coming here for help. Also I have used Nero 8 trial version but that creates bad burns too. Since i bought my dvd discs about 2-3 weeks ago, I have successfully made copies of my dvd movies into my Hard Drive in the form of ISO’s but 5 out of the 6 movies I currently have, haven’t played successfully on my TV/dvd player, 1 movie was able to play just fine.
When Im burning the movies, I dont have programs running, the only thing I have open is the dvd burnig program, and whatever is running on the bottom-right side of the screen. But those arent big programs (i think). I once tried the verify option on ImgBurn but after it burned succesfully the verifying gave me a ton of errors on that dvd, soo I guess that has something to do with it but I am not sure.
