Strange horizontal lines on DVD burn

Art Wheat


Did my first burn. A QuickTime movie that I dragged and dropped into Toast.

I added a menu style, set to auto-play and play all items continuously.

Encoding was automatic and the video quality was set to better.


I created a Disc Image first so I would not waste a disc. Tested OK in the Mac DVD player on my computer. So I proceeded to burn the disc. Seemed to work OK. Took it home and put it into the Toshiba SD2900 and it started fine. Auto-play kicked in but I had horizontal lines across the screen. Could hear audio OK. I tried changing chapters, I would get a brief display of the correct image for the start of that chapter and then it would go back to horizontal lines.


Any ideas? Has anyone experienced this before?

What should I try?


Any help is greatly appreciated,

I would try a different brand of DVD media. If you used DVD+R I'd also choose DVD-R for my test. Verbatim media is very good.


Thank you tsantee, after doing some more reading that was what I was thinking. Looks like you could write a book on this, Roxio should give you some kind of recognition. I checked Staples and Best Buy last night on my way home from work looking specifically for Verbatim discs without any luck. I may need to order them online.


Thank you very much for your help!
