Iâ€™m having problems playing my home-burned DVDs on my Sony DVP-NS55P. It plays fine for awhile (usually over an hour) then starts skipping. The DVDs play fine on my computer and my JVC XV-N40 player. The Sony is fairly new, so I find it hard to believe it needs cleaning yet, but it I suppose that could be the problem. Iâ€™m going to get a cleaner and try it.
Iâ€™m using quality Taiyo Yuden 8x blanks, my Samsung DVD burner has the current TS12 driver, I burn at low speeds (1 or 2x), and I halt virus scanning and background tasks before burning with the command Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks. So, I think my burns are fine (I think), I’m just getting playback skipping on the Sony, which is rated a quality player. If the cleaning doesnâ€™t work, Iâ€™m thinking of giving up on the Sony and getting another JVC which Iâ€™ve always had excellent results. Any thoughts on my burning techniques or the playing problem? Thanks for any help.
