Sorry if this has been discussed before. System: PC Burner: Sony DVD-RW (DW-D18A) Burning Software: Pinnacle Instant Copy 8 SE DVD-Rs: Verbatim Pastel (x8) DVD Player: Panasonic A360 (just over five years old) DVD Recorder: Panasonic E85 (10 months old) I recently bought some Verbatim Pastel DVD-R (x8) which I haven't used before and so tested one by burning a film in my PC's DVD-RW drive. The resulting DVD-R played fine in my PC drive but I noticed on my stand-alone Panasonic DVD Player that at one point the film suffered slight picture break up and momentary loss of sound. I burnt a second copy of the film on my PC, this time turning the write speed down to minimum. Again, the film seemed to play perfectly on my PC but this time suffered a few more instances of picture / sound break up when played in my Panasonic DVD Player, although not in the same place as the first DVD-R. I then tried playing both DVD-Rs in my Panasonic DVD Recorder and both recordings appeared to play perfectly. Is this a common phenomenon? And what is the most likely cause of the discs displaying occasional picture break-up in my Panasonic DVD Player? Is it the PC Burner, the discs, the software I'm using or my Panasonic A360?
