I've had similar problems with a few movies freezing and or skipping such as Deja Vu. I burned Amer. Gang. w/ Roxio 8 and it freezes and skips in quite a few spots when I play it in both of my dvd players and in my computer w/ nero 7 showtime. But when I play it in my computer w/ windows media player 10 it plays perfectly. I don't know what else to try. Good luck.
