Burned Dvdr Stuttering And Freezing


65click

Question

I have been playing back a DVDR from a home movie via my portable Phillips DVD player.

 

I notice that although the aspect ratio is correct we are talking wide screen presentation, the picture is slightly smaller, also at certain points the picture starts to stutter and then freeze.... start again... still the same.

 

Is this something one can expect with these portable DVD player? Mine is OK it seems, it plays the commercial DVDs perfectly.

 

Is there anything I can do, a recommended format to make the DVD more portabl;e player friendly?

I can't make a guess about the size problem.

 

I read a few comments about portables here:

http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers

and it seems that many of them are not designed to play burned DVD's. Does the owner's manual say it'll play DVD-R or DVD+R?

 

Another reason could be the quality of the burn and your media. The player could be choking on too many errors.

 

Use DVDInfo Pro (it's under Home/Applications/Utilities) and perform a PI/PO error scan on the troublesome disk. This takes some time so be prepared to do something else during the scan. Also write down the MID code. The MID code tells you who really manufactured the disk.

 

For me, these scan results are acceptable (Verbatim DVD-R, 16x, burned @ 16x). How does your disk compare (higher number mean more errors)?

 

Parity Inner (PI) errors:

Peak - 114

Average - 34

 

Parity Outer (PO) errors:

Peak - 78

Average - 2

For archival purposes, I use Taiyo-Yuden DVD-R 8x disks burned as slow as my burner will allow (4x):

 

Parity Inner (PI):

Peak - 24

Average - 10

 

Parity Outer (PO):

Peak - 9

Average - 0

Thank you for your fulsome reply. I will go to the website mentioned and see. The handbook for my player suggests it will play all disks including those I used.

 

I have again checked my discs via my system DVD player thru' the TV and they are perfect. It does sort of devolve to the Philips 710 player which, I may add in all other things is excellent.
