    i have been having some trouble burning some vob files to a dvd and played back on a dvd player. my problem is that when playing the dvd the video freezes and 3-6 seconds later it unfreezes but looses its place where it froze. i have tried different typs of cd's and different speeds. i am using nero burning rom. anyone have any idea why this happens?

    Just use DvD shrink instead, site has gone as author now works for Nero full time.

    Cannot guarantee how long it will last for on server so, make sure you keep a copy of it.

    mmmm..... If you're talking about DvD's you purchased or rent, then it may be a problem with your DvD player as I have had this experience on two of the thousands of DvD's we own in our home, played on a DvD player under T.V..

    If it's DvD's that are blank I use Mr DvD and some I got from amazon.co.uk cheap in a 100 spindle made by Hi Space, I have burnt 900 and not one has buggered up, but.....if you are talking about your DvD writer, player on your maching, then it might be a problem with the player, software or device for playing DvD's.

    is this while watching your copied dvd in your home dvd player ?? If so, the prblemis more than like the fact that it don't support the type of dvd you used .. Most players either support +r or -r. Some, like mine, will play anything you throw at it. I would check to see which one yours supports and go from there ..

    no my dvd player can play just about anything. but i think i found the problem. i was DL at the same time i was copying and that was causing the "pause" when watching the movie on my dvd player. ill now have to rewrite those....

    If you buy a cheap dvd player now, posibilities are that it won't play both +R and -R. It will only play one or the other ...I just bought a dvd player about a month ago. It will only play +R disk. It will not play -R,mp3, jpeg, cdr, cdrw etc. I tried to play a -R, all it did was skip and sputter threw the movie. Every once in a while it would even lock up.. Other disks, it will give a invlaid cd error while trying to play it ...

    If I burned dvd pauses or skips as it plays, I tend to think that it is cheap media. It's tough to get a good quality burn with alot of the burners and cheap ass media out there.
