Glitchy dvd play



I am trying to burn my Final Cut Pro 90-minute movie. I export to Quicktime, then burn using Toast 6 Lite that came packaged with an external Sony DVD burner (DRX-830UL-T) -- because my iMac DVD drive died.


My results are frustratingly uneven: I've burned a dozen discs. On two, the results are pretty good. The vast majority are riddled with halts, hiccups and ugly pixellation.


By the way, I have shut down all other applications and done nothing else on my computer while burning.


Can anyone help me burn good copies consistently?


My thanks in advance.

Did you use Toast Lite 6.1? I think that is the latest version and it is compatible with Quicktime 7.x which was not the case with earlier versions. Alternatively if you have iDVD 5 or 6 you can use it to Save as Disc Image and use Toast to burn that image file to DVD. There also is a freeware called Patchburn that should let you burn directly from iDVD to an external DVD drive.
