I've searched for some answers and I haven't found any which address my current problem. I use anydvd the latest version (I check every time I'm starting the process) though I use it for removing protections only. I combine that with Nero recode which does pretty much all the work, I also check for latest version before I start. I use my Benq 1655 as my reader and a Pio 111L as burner, though I've tried all four combinations just to check. Also I have performed laser cleaning of both drives and the standalone player with appropriate disk.
The glitches consist of random jumpyness, blockyness, stuttering, or big pixels which last less than one or two seconds but are easily percievable even on movies with no compression.
Should I be looking for a different program combination, different drives. As for options in nero I go for quality over time any day of the week, so second passes are done automatically for files that need it.
Any and all info and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. If more info is needed just ask and I shall do my best to provide it.
Thanks again for the service which this forum provides and if I've made a mistake in my post or posting location, please advise and I will try to correct it.
