[QUOTE=geno888;2266652]Most of times, the cause of the bad burn is a low quality disc.
A less frequent cause of this problem is a wrong burning speed.
Finally, the problem can be in the player itself. You can try to clean the optical pickup, but this is not an easy thing, because sometimes is needed to open the drive (a thing that I’m not able to do :o)[/QUOTE]
So when I buy a DVD movie or TV show from a store and it freezes, that means that the professional company that manufactured the DVD used a low quality disc or the wrong burning speed to record the movie? I thought that they would be more professional than that, but I guess not. I also thought that I had read somewhere years ago that dual layer disks sometimes do that, but I can’t remember the site or if I’m remembering right.
This leads me to another question: Are there any cleaning disks (like you would buy at Wal-Mart, for example) that would clean the optical pickup in the DVD player (that would not damage the unit) and without having to open the drive? Keep in mind, I’m on a budget, so I can’t afford anything expensive. I’ve always wondered if those cleaning disks are safe to use (never used one).
