You need to try this on a NEW DVD player. You'll likely find it's OK.
If you have a Linux machine, K3b can duplicate that DVD at any speed you want. Just so you can try it.
I know the issue, there is no real cure other than new players, Lens Cleaners and good media, but no recorder media plays on my Apex DVD player. It was annoying so I gave that one away.
I am not sure of the source of this problem, whether it software or hardware related, so apologies if this turns out to be the wrong forum.
I just bought a DVD burner and adobe premiere 6.5. I did up a show for a client where I took a 4 minute show (turned it into an .avi file) and loaded that .avi file repeatedly into the premiere edit timeline, creating a 45 minute "loop." In all the (4) DVD's I burned of this show, there was a problem where the DVD would freeze on a frame somewhere in the show. on some disks sometimes it happened maybe 6 minutes in, other disks it happened like 30 minutes in.
This was seen on 2 separate DVD players
It happened in different places on each disk
it happened on both +R and -R disks
it happened with both mpg and mv2 (?) format files encoded by premiere and burned by myDVD
the only thing consistent was the source material (which in most of its repetitions played fine),
the myDVD by sonic software that I used,
and the liteon DVD burner on my machine.
I am wondering if this is a problem caused by using cheap 4x media ?? myDVD only burns at "auto" speed (whatever that is, won't tell me)
