Question dvd burning pops, glitches

i have yet to burn an error free dvd
my software, roxio, says it burns error free but then when i watch there are sometimes pops, clicks and glitches...ususally grouped in certain spots for minutes at a time. anyone know of why this would occur...ive burned on high speed and low, great media and not so great, all with the same result. maybe a certain setting, ie 'buffer underrun protection,' something like that...
thank you

Re: dvd burning pops, glitches

Have you tried watching a burned disc on your computer with VLC or Windows Media Player?

It could be your standalone that is the problem. Your standalone player might be wearing out or it doesn't like a certain type of media (+ or -).

Does it skip on all your burned DVDs, not just one particular show?

Nero ($80, more features) or ONES ($25, less features) is the best burning software for Windows. When I used to burn CDs with Roxio EZ CD Creator at high speed it would make a coaster.

This is a good thread to check out regarding what is good media: http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=12729

The media listed as 1st class on this site are the best, but I'd stay away from Taiyo Yuden TYG03 16X DVD media:
http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

I found one of the five best DVD discs ever made according to digitalfaq, Japanese Made Taiyo Yudens (YUDEN00T02) for sale here $40 for a 100 pack cake box. Taiyo Yuden Shiny Silver Thermal 8X DVD+R Media in Cake Box Spindle - Free Ground Shipping

Look for these on www.supermediastore.com

Re: dvd burning pops, glitches

^^ Good advice. Also, are you positive you finished the torrent (did you run the md5s against the files?). And are you running the checksums against the burned DVD also to make sure the files are not being altered?

Does your DVD player play both PAL and NTSC? Could you be giving it a PAL DVD when it only plays NTSC?
