Reading through the site recently and found it fantastic! I am full sure that my problem will be rectified ( with a little help from your good selves ).
Problem: DVD backups appear to process fine. Nero 6 ( latest edition ), ANYDVD, Clone DVD 2, DVD Decrypter / Shrink: Have tried all combinations and no errors during backup ( Always get that " Backup successful" message. Media is Fuji ( TYG02 ) DVD-r 8*. Have also used Verbatim and Ritek ( G04 and G05 ). Have burned at all speeds from 1 to 8.
Hardware: Sony DRU-530A ( firmware 2.1c ) and Samsung SD-616 ( bpt3 ). When the DVDs are placed in standalone DVD players, they play with varying levels of success. The same problems persist: skipping / freezing at various points in the recording. Several standalones tested (both older and most recent models ). The strange thing is that all play fine in PS2 with no issues ( and, of course, on the PC ). Is my problem media or hardware related ???
Im am borderline suicidal at this stage and have tried many searches for relevant topics. Skipping / freezing issues seem common but I’ve tried so many combos. I’m stumped…
