I recently bought lite-on 1653s and backed up a couple of movies. I tried to play them in my DVD-player, (LG 5084) experiencing a lot of skipping which started a little after the middle, getting more intense towards the end. This suggests that I’ve burned the DVD with too high speed, right? The same DVD (TDK DVD+R, by the way) worked fine in PS2. I burned the DVD with 4x speed.
Problem was that Nero couldn’t burn the DVD any slower than 4x even though the media supported lower speeds. So, I downloaded omnipatcher and firmware for the writer and changed its settings so that it could burn with 1x speed.
I started DVDshrink and the options for 1x, 2x and 2,4x burning speed appeared. Strangely enough, options for 4x and 8x disappeared. Well, that didn’t matter I thought, as long as it burns slowly it will be allright.
I started backing up the movie (chose 1x for burning speed) and when it came to burning, status window said: started burning at 4x… at this point I hit cancel.
What could be wrong? And is my DVD-player extra-picky about DVD+Rs? A DVD+R burned at 4x shouldn’t skip at all, right?
