I have a Toshiba SD-R5272 with 1031 firmware. I am having problems copying dvd’s. The copy goes fine and will play in my home dvd player. Problem is the last 10 or 15 minutes of the dvd starts getting choppy and the audio starts dropping in and out. I have only made 3 copies so far. All 3 were on different media. If I watch the saved outputed files on my pc the audio and video are fine. I figure it is something in the burn process. Of the 3 I have copied only 1 works flawlessly. Oddly enough though the media is HP dvd+r 4x disc. This is the only dvd I copied that works good. I made one dvd data disk and one dvd movie and then my burner quit burning to these disk’s anymore. The burn process appears to go fine, but my pc or home dvd will not read the disk. I called the support number and was told to update my firmware and try different media. I updated to 1031 but still can’t burn to the HP disk. After that I have successfully burned with verbatim and imation media for data disk, but have the problem with the movies. Looking for some ideas. I am pretty new to dvd burning.
Thanks in advance!
