I am a bit depressed. I have always had problems getting good quality DVD burns. I got sick of cheap Ritek and decided to look at the media compatability lists for my 4040B and buy media that was listed or did well in the cdfreaks review.
So I bought:
Verbatim printable and pastel
(details on link)
However I still have some glitches. The best disk for playback I have is an Arita Ricoh +RW that always plays back well although the scans are middle ranked compared to those linked above!
My DVD Player (under TV) is an LG.
My DVD ROM Drive is a Liteon 166.
My PC is an Athlon XP, ATI NF7-S 2.0, 1Gb of RAM, using the Microsoft IDE drivers.
My 4040B has 303 BIOS.
Any ideas? Why am I getting glitches in my DVD movies? Is this normal? They are watchable but annoying. Glitches at beginning and end. Are these scans ok?
Please tell me what you think of the scans? Do I need a new DVD Player or a new DVD Burner or is this as good as it gets?
