I’m on my second DL DVD writer and I’m encountering the same problem as I did on the first. The first was a Sony and the current one is an LG (I don’t know the product models off the top of my head).
The first few discs I’ve burned from both work perfect. I’d say I got about five DL discs out of the first player and maybe eight or so out of the second. Suddenly, I get a problem from discs I’ve made from both: the video pauses right in the middle of the movie, where I would assume the layer break occurs. On my computer drives it stops and starts every few seconds for a while and then runs fine afterward, but on my stand-alone DVD player it freezes until I turn off the player and use the chapters to skip past the layer break.
Does anyone else get this problem or know how I might be able to fix it? I can’t believe I got two lemons in a row, and I’d hate to have to buy yet another DL DVD burner!
I should probably mention that I use Nero Essentials 7 to burn the discs. Also, any normal-sized DVDs I burn work perfectly fine. It’s just the DLs that give me trouble.
