I bought a bunch of TAYO YUDEN blanks (recommended by Plextor) and started backing up several of my DVD movies.
When I played them on my stand-alone DVD player, I noticed that after about 90 mins into the film, I’m starting to see large pixles and the image freezes for about a second every several seconds. As the movie progresses, it gets worse until it finally stops.
I tried lowering the burning speed to x2, but it still happens.
The weird thing is that when I used a cheap, no-brand media, I managed to burn the same movie and it played flawlessly.
How could this be ? Is this a known problem ?
I know that Plextor drives are picky about blank media, but my drive seems to have a weird taste …
BTW - I’m using FW 1.06
