    Hi All,

    My Boss brought in a DVD-R of his sons football team that the manager had made for the players. When he watches it in his DVD player at home (of on a PC at work) after a few minutes it jumps and skips. Go to another chapter on the disc and after a while does the same.

    So i was thinking i would use dvd-decryptor to create a new image of the disc and then burn it to a decent DVD-R at 2x speed and then see what happens.

    The disc itself looks ok, but am not sure at what speed it was burnt at or what software they used to make/burn these discs with.

    Do u think its worth me creating a new image of the disc and then re-burning or do u think that the problems which are on the disc already will be transfered to my burn.

    Not done something like this before, so any advice would be apprecaited you never know i may get a pay raise out of it, saying that if i cant sort it then it will be my P45 - ;0)

    Thanks

    Dal

    Yep - agree 100% - it's almost certain to be crud media that's causing the problem.

    DVD drives in PC's seem to be a lot less fussy on media so I would do exactly what you have suggested.

    Use DVDDecrypter in ISO mode to Read the disk, then use some decent media (Ritek Grade A or Branded Disk) and do an ISO Write.

    Good luck with your pay rise !

    :laugh:

    Nero, DVDDecryper... they are all the same in an image mode so use what you have.

    Datasafe Riteks are (IMO) very good disks - you should have no trouble with those...

    I think ill go for create the image in dvd-decrypter and then burn it using that too.

    Not done that before so it will be worth testing it out.
    if not ill use NERO
