I have just found this specific forum for Lite-On recorders. This problem was posted on another site forum and I had various answers but would like to ask this again in the hope that someone with a Lite-on can help.
I have a DD-A100X Recorder purchased recently from a high street store. This is the first DVD recorder I have owned although I have been burning DVDâ€™s on the PC for a year or two and have access to five different DVD players.
My reason for buying this unit was to backup my old VHS tapes before they were beyond saving! The requirements were straight forward. Copy the VHS tape to DVD RW on the Lite-on, rip to the PC hard drive; use the likes of VOB blanker to edit out unwanted material and burn permanently to a DVD R.
This process appears to work fine apart from one problem â€“ the burned DVDâ€™s do not play on four out of five other players I have access to. Admittedly the players vary in age from old to brand new (although the brand new one is one of the four that would not play the authored discs). The media is not the problem since I have authored DVDs on the PC to the same media using the same burner and they play fine in all the players. I have also tried different media with the same result.
The problem is the authored discs do play but â€˜stutterâ€™ i.e. they play for five seconds then freeze for a split second then play for five seconds then freeze etc.
A recording made directly to the Lite-on from the television and finalised does exactly the same.
Incompatibility is one thing but four out of five players not playing the discs is too much. At least after the VHS/Betamax war was sorted out a tape could be recorded in one player and almost 100% guaranteed to work in another â€“ thatâ€™s progress for you!!
Anybody any ideas or comments on this? Thanks.
