Default Problems w/ DVD Burning

I've tried using DVD X Copy, and now im trying to use dvd shrink.....but everytime i backup and burn a dvd after an hour or more the dvd begins to skip and essentially my dvd player(s) are having a very difficult time reading the copy. What could be the problem? is it my software, hardware, my recordable media?? I've tried burning many dvd's and the problem is consitent. Please help. Thanks.

definetly sounds like the most common problem. sounds as if it is poor or incompatible media being used. also , what speed are you burning at? generaaly when your burn at 4x or lower, the chances of success are much higher.

below is a link to find compatible media for your dvd player.
what is the make and model# of your dvd player?

Like columbo999 said you should burn at no more than 4x.

Just so you don't miss it in columbo999's sig. link, here are some approx. burn times from that link:

Single Layer(4.7GB) write speeds
1x (CLV) = about 58 minutes
2x (CLV) = about 29 minutes
2.4x (CLV) = about 24 minutes
4x (CLV) = about 14.5 minutes
6x (CLV/ZCLV) = about 10-12 minutes
8x (PCAV/ZCLV) = about 8-10 minutes
12x (PCAV/ZCLV) = about 6.5-7.5 minutes
16x (CAV/ZCLV) = about 6-7 minutes

To save 10 to 15 minutes in the first burn it will cost you a lot more time the second time around.

I burn @ 4x.

Regards,
