Where Is my weak link?



I would very much appreciate advice on my problem.
I have been utilizing the following software and hardware
for burning backup copies of movies which I have purchased.
DVD Burner _NEC DVD±RW ND6500A 2.22
Any DVD (SlyFox) 54.1.1
DVD Shrink 3.2 (re-author main title only)
1 Click 4.2
Blanks Phillips DVD+r 4.7G

I have burned several copies which have played great on my home
DVD player. Last night I played a copy on another DVD player (Sony all)
and glitches throughout the feature.
I thought I had the the perfect combination, not!
Where is my weak link???

Thanks for consideration


Welcome randoozle. 99% of the time the weak link is media. Often different media agrees with different standalone DVD Players. I’m not sure but you maybe able to Bitset the booktype to DVD-ROM to increase compatibility. Download this:DVD Identifier and post back the MID/Manufacturer of your disc’s. You’ll have to place the disc in the Writer as most readers dont read MID’s.

Is this what you requested?

Thank you


Every time i’ve encountered glitches, its because i burned the movie too fast. First slow down the speed, then try a different media. I try to use Fujis that are made in Japan which are usually Taiyo Yuden. On 8x media i can burn at 16x with no problems.


CMC is Garbage media. Try Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim, TDK or any other MID a cd freak recommends.


Verbatims that are Made in Singapore seem to yield great results for me. They are manufactured by MCC and are among the best Verbatims available (well, I read that here anyway).
