I got my 3500A a few days ago and made a disc. I used Verbatim 8X DVD-Rs (MCC 02RG20) to back up my Spider-man 2 disc. The first was at 2X speed (due to me not setting the speed choice up before burning) created with DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink. I experience periodic pauses during the playback from time to time on my Sony and Toshiba set top players. Is there any way I can test the quality of the burn without having a LiteOn drive (using only my NEC 3500A)? I have read that Sony can be picky for playing back burned DVDs…any recomendations on a new DVD player that is a bit more compatable with the newer formats (DVD-R, MP3 CD & DVD)? Thanks for the help.
p.s. Sorry if this has been discussed often in the past, I couldn’t find a good answer when I searched for one.
