Okay. All is semi-well in 2500a land. I have backed up several of my DVDs on TDK media with no problems. However, when i attempted to back up my beloved Dawn of the Dead (1978 original) it burned fine, however when i attempted to play it on my PS2 it jittered toward the end and completely froze at the end and stopped, announcing it was unable to read the disc.
Now Dawn of the Dead is a long movie (127 mins). I had to dump damn near everything outside of one audio track and the flim itself and it still exceedED 4.2 Gigs. I was using TDKs which I was told were quality media and DVD Shrink. Will increasing the compression (thus adding more unused space on the disc) help the situation? I burned the 2x media at 6x courtsey of Herrie's firmware.
Thanks again guys for your help.
