DVD lockup

When I play my DVD in my home DVD player it has a lot of lock ups. The picture will stay still for a long time and the start playing again. Im using IMG burning tool to burn them. Should I try to turn down the buring speed? Im new to this so any suggestions is appreciated.

Re: DVD lockup

I believe most PC users like to use Nero to burn DVDs (do a search in Technobabble on it). Could it also be that your DVD player only likes NTSC DVDs and the one you are trying to play is PAL (or vice versa)?

Re: DVD lockup

Sorry, like i said Im pretty new to this. How would I know if my dvd player prefers NTSC DVDs or PAL? Would it say in the owners manual? What is the difference between the two?

Re: DVD lockup

Yes, your owners manual should say. You may also want to go to videohelp.com and take a look at their list of DVD players there. They list many, many models and then list what they are capable of playing (and other comments also).

PS2 Burned DVD Issues

Hi, I burned some of the DVDs here onto Memorx DVD+R and they ran great on the comptuer. However, none of them worked in my old PS2. Does anyone know of the PS2 compatability with burned DVDs? Thanks.

Re: PS2 Burned DVD Issues

according to videohelp.com, under the DVD Players section, the PS2 *should* play -R and +R discs fine.

what burning software did you use to burn the DVD?

did you include both an AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folder on the disc? (i know for some players, they 'need' to see an AUDIO_TS folder in order to play the discs without problems.)

have you tried using a different brand of DVDs?

do you know what version your PS2 is? apparently there are something like 6 or 7 versions of the PS2, so this might come into play in this situation.

Re: PS2 Burned DVD Issues

I got my PS2 right after they came out. I haven't had a problem with it reading +R at all.

Re: PS2 Burned DVD Issues

if you want, you can contact PS2 and have them update yer chips for free [you'll pay to ship it]...

mine quit playin certin games/all dvds--kept giving me disc read errors...so i checked online for a firmware update-nope-and then called em...they'll ask you a million questions, just tell em it quit playin certain games/discs--thats all [don't fall for the "have you dropped the console, etc..." shit] that way they have to fix it for free

all you have ta say is it quit playin certain games/disc and you get DRE's [most of the early consoles had a defect, but sony wanted to get em out on shelves, despite the defect--capitalist bastards!] they'll give ya a # and address, you send it in [got mine back about 3 weeks later]...that should do the trick re: burnt DVDs, as well as leaving you with an updated PS2 [still can't figure out why the assholes at sony won't release firmware updates...it'd be alot easier]

goodluck
aar.onerrrrrrrrrrrrrr
