I have a Sony DVD 300 disc changer (CX-860 series) and am having problems playing a copied DVD disc. What happens is the menu shows up fine and all the special features work, however when I click on the play movie option it will only play about 5 seconds of video and skip to the next chapter. I am using DVD decrypter to create the image on my hard drive, then I use DVD shrink to burn the disc. Not all discs have this problem but about 10% of the movies I have copied act this way.
The interesting thing here is that this disc does not play on my Sony DVD player but it plays fine on my Apex, RCA and Panasonic players, this problem seems only to happen on a sony. I can take the disc and play it in my computer with no problems. I also have made copies for one of my friends and his Sony DVD player and Sony DVD Recorder do the same thing, but his Tochiba plays the disc fine.
Does anybody know what is going on with the sony? I have used Ritek 4X media, TDK media they both act the same.
