    Hi,
    I copied a particular movie and played it back to watch a few days ago and it played great. I just purchased a label making program and placed a label on the disk. Now, while trying to play back and froze toward the end of the movie. Is labeling bad? Is their a certain type of label I should use. I'm using regular non gloss labels.:)

    Don't use the labeling method. Bad Bad News. Label them with a Sharpie, or use printable discs.

    Your problem may or may not be a problem with the label. There is a whole thread about the problems of using sticky labels.

    Basically.....don't do it. Use a sharpie or a printer that has the ability to print on CD/DVD media.

    The others said it very well. It has been my experience that on movies that use most of the disc, there seems to be some pauses and freezing in the playback. It may not show up for a while. I have done movies (15-30 minute) that take up very little of the disc and there is no problems.

    The safest method is an Extra Fine Sharpie if not using printable media on full length movies.
