Problems with disc stutter on playback?


Established Member
At work we use Panasonics (mainly the versions with both VHS and DVD recording) and we have had complaints of the disc playback doing a little stutter every 20 seconds or so.
We did tests.
We recorded first to the HDD then to the disc - still stuttered
This was using DVD -r.
Then we tried burning direct to DVD +r - the problem we thought, had gone away - the first disc seemed fine... but subsequent discs were not :(
In the end we switched to the Sony machine - I think it is the 510,
No problems at all on both +R and -R??

Anyone had similar experiences.....?

Hi Chris,
Yes I have had similar probs with DVD recorders and noted that my Panasonic Machines were very critical of the media I fed it, Inconsistencies withe quality of supplied blank -R discs meant the first bundle would be flawless then the next few skipped/stuttered.
Datawrite Yellows were most consistent and Ram Discs 100% reliable.
What discs were you useing ?.
Recently got 100 Verbs which are usually highly regarded - 1st 25 no prob then opened new pack and several failed high speed dubs.

We used Verbatim +R and -R's.
We send them out as viewing copies so we need to get it right.
Perhaps we should trythe datawrite Yellows and see...?
