Taiyo-Yuden DVD-R (8x)

Hello, everyone
I have been burning movies with Sony DVD-R (16x) for quite some time now. I have wasted quite a few disks because the movie will keep freezing in a certain spot. Plays fine on the pc. So, I switched to TY-02 DVD-R (8x). Haven’t had problem with freezing but, the picture seems kind of fuzzy (not as sharp and a lighter color). Has anyone else had this problem or is it all in my head?

IF that is so then your standalone player may be the culprint…

For the freezing up or the picture quality?

Both
