I wasn't sure where exactly to post this, but here goes..
I have a Sony AW-Q170A burner with Nero 18.104.22.168 (came with it) and whenever I burn a DVD it skips and freezes in my standalone player.
btw, the movies are all copies of dvds I own.. I prefer to store the originals and use the copies.. (if the copies get scratched I can make new ones, etc)
The discs I use are Maxell DVD+R (Media code: CMC Magnetics M01).
I think the problem is Zone-CLV because Nero seems to burn in stages.. it starts at 6x then stops, resumes burning at 8x, stops, etc until it reaches the desired speed.. and the skips/freezes in the movie seem to correspond to these steps.. (the first one usually happens only a few minutes in.)
My old Pioneer A07 burner never behaved liked this.. if I chose 8x it burned the whole disc at 8x speed non-stop, and as a result the movies played fine. I upgraded coz I wanted DL support, and chose the Sony for it's 18x capability.
Is there any way to configure the burner to write at a constant speed instead of in steps ?
Thanks in advance,
