I tried to do a movie-only backup of Terminator 2 Extreme Edition. There were 2 large angles to choose from, so I chose the largest one and the first subtitle. The copy would stutter every few minutes, and the subtitles were not what I expected - more like a commentary.
So, I did another movie-only copy and chose the smaller angle - got the same results. Even PowerDVD on my computer had the stuttering.
Lastly, I did a full-movie rip (about 8.5 GB), picked the 6 channel audio, and it plays fine with no stuttering.
I guess I could have saved 2 wasted dvd blanks by using a dvdrw first, but I've gotten spoiled by so many past successes.
