Pixelating

Not sure if it’s even a word but I’m having a problem with Nero 7 Essentials. When I burn my home movies to DVD, the disc burns but when I view it the picture seems to pulse with pixel breakthrough. Just enough to drive you nuts. I downloaded and installed the latest firmware for my burner. I’m wondering if it’s something in the setup I’m doing wrong or if it could just be I got a defective burner?

Thanks

Almost certainly this is a media problem. Either you’re using poor quality discs or discs that aren’t compatible with your burner.

Thanks for the response. I’ve tried two different types of media. Maxell DVD+R and Sony DVD-R and get the same exact result with each. Any recommendations on what brand and type of media is best for just burning home movies to send to Grandparents? :smiley:

Most Verbatim 16X is pretty good burned at 8X. What is your burner?


#5

What is the quality of the video you are burning? Do you know the bitrate or what type it is? Did you capture it and if so, how/what settings?

Do you know what quality setting was used to burn it?
