I don’t know the firmware version nor am I quite sure how to check it.
The discs are Memorex Double Layer DVD+R.
I used ImgBurn and slowed it down to 1x and the problem still occured. The LG is about 6 months while the Sony is a couple years at least (I’m more worried about the LG working right now). I’m pretty sure neither is in warranty, though.
I have no idea what crossflashing is.
I do use both a lot, but even a bunch of burning in six months shouldn’t have warn the drive down so it won’t burn DLs correctly, could it?
There is no error message. When the video reaches the point of the layer break (or at least about the middle of the movie) during playback the video just freezes, that’s it.
[quote=heyman421;2038557]What software are you using?
Try using imgburn, it will choose an appropriate layer-break point, based on chapter, so that the break will occur between two chapters on the disc.
For some reason nero tries to set the layer break at the default location (no matter what) and if it’s in the middle of a chapter, it can cause choppiness and freezing.
Also, for video-dvd, make sure you’re using book-type set dvd+r dl media, as dvd-r dl media has a set layer break that cannot be changed, and is terrible for dvd-video.[/quote]
I was using Nero Essentials 7 and had no problems until recently. I just tried burning with ImgBurn and got the exact same problem.
How can I tell if the media is book-type set? They are DVD+R discs, though. I don’t even want to attempt to mess around with -R discs, DL or not.
I always try to get Verbatims, but the store was out of them when I got these. Besides, I haven’t had any trouble until the past week or so. Past few days, really.
