I recently bought a LO 851. I also have a HP300i. I have a toshiba 5 disc standalone player.
I'm using memorex 4x +r's for backups. In previous dvd movie rips with my HP, I've had no problems. When I started using the Lite On, I'm getting lot's of skips and pauses in the stand alone. Playing in the LO drive is fine. When I use the HP +RW I have, the lite On burn plays fine in the standalone.
Why would my LO burns not work and my HP's work? I've reduced the speed to 2.4x, but I'm still getting bad discs, skipping in the standalone... I have a very large bundle of blanks. Would these discs play in a different stand alone? For $45 it would be cheaper to buy a new standalone, then to discard the 86 DVD's I have left.
Any help or advice would be appreciated...
