I purchased an external DVD burner – Samsung SE-S184 – that came bundled with Nero Express 6 software. I’m making backups of movie DVDs. Double-layer DVDs burned will verify OK and play on the computer, but will not play well on my DVD player.
Typically, the DVD will play until the middle chapters when the picture becomes noisy, then eventually stops playing altogether. Skipping five or six of the middle chapters, the DVD will play OK to the end. So far every DL DVD burned but one shows the same problem.
I think the problem is with Nero since by using evaluation copies of other burning software the DL DVD will play OK in my DVD player. One example of other burning software: CloneDVD. I used this to burn only, not create the backup to burn.
Is there freeware or cheap shareware that I can use to burn DVDs instead of Nero?
