Now here's an odd thing I've had my E85 over six months now and have mainly been using the HDD. Occasionaly I dub stuff to Sony or Imation DVD-Rs for archiving. Not a coaster to date, but... This weekend we watched three of the archived DVD-Rs on the E-85 and they all had the same problem. After a period of playback (anything from 40 to 70 minutes) the image and sound would break up and freeze. The DVD-R effectively locks. But if I open the DVD tray and then close it again, and fast forward to the point where the picture broke last time, it plays it fine right through to the end of the disc without any further break. I tried other homemade DVD-Rs on another DVD player and had the same problem. The DVD-Rs aren't dirty, nor can I get the picture breakup to re-occur at the same point. The original recordings on the HDD are fine and we've never had any break up on the HDD playback. Pre-recorded DVDs are fine, too. Any ideas? It's bloody odd and completely unpredictable when it's going to happen, but it seems to happen with every disc I've made.
