I have a feeling that my DVD writer is failing. I have a Sony DVD RW DW-D18A inside a Sony R VGc-RA710G. I have for the past few months been buring a number of Dvd (video) with no problem at all.
Just within the past week though…i have been buring DVds (video) with pixilation/pausing/jittering and some that fail in the first second of play. I have used Sony 8x +R/TDK 8x + and - R and my new RITEk 8x +r without any luck. I have Defraged my harddrive and its clean. I have 1 200gig and one 100gig hard drive in the system.
I use Shrink and nero to burn.
I normally record at the highest speed but im thinking that could be a problem as well. Really cant explain it. Could my DVD writer be failing so soon? Its only a year old.
Could it be the media? Have i been that unlucky in picking DVDs off the Best Buy shelf? Could it be some DVD recording and authoring software i have conflicting with each other?
