    Not sure if any one can help, but I have a problem with DVDs that might fautly. When I play the disc on my DVD payer/recorder, the disc's are ok. But when I paly them on my HTPC, they come up as faulty. e.g. say at about 28 mins into the film, the film freeze's totaly, but not on the DVD paly/recorder. Would anyone know why that is?

    Original commercial dvds? or backups?



    For backups . . .

    "12. My backups play on my computer or standalone dvd player, but not in something else. Why?

    First, if the backup is playing in a standalone dvd player or on your computer, that means Anydvd and whatever backup program you used worked.

    The most common reason why you're having this problem (if the backup doesn't work in a standalone dvd player) is due to a compatibility issue between the blank media you're using and whatever you're using to play the backup in (standalone dvd player, for example). Basically your dvd player, dvd-rom drive, etc. doesn't like the blank media you're using (or if you're using +R media, you didn't change the booktype to "dvd-rom"). You can try choosing other blank media (+r instead of -r, for example, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")--or buy a different standalone dvd player (or a different dvd-rom drive, burner, etc.).

    If you're using dvd-r media and your standalone dvd player gives you a message similar to ""Play Prohibited, please check disc", use dvd+r media instead and change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (see "b)" below). In all likelyhood, your standalone dvd player will refuse to play dvd-r media.

    a) Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden 8x premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer to this question is "yes".
    b) Click this and read FULLY (especially take a look at point 4 for more information on bitsetting/booktyping, but all points are very important)

    The same factors also apply to why the backup doesn't play in your computer (but there can be other factors including buggy or poorly installed dvd player software, bad drivers, etc.).

    It's also possible the playback device/player you're using is slowly dying."

    Dvd Copying

    I am just puzzled when I play a DVD DISC in my HTPC I get faults showing (like the screen freezes for a second or more or the film justs freezes totally). But when I play the DVD DISC in a DVD player/recorder, I don't get any faults showing. I check it again with some other discs, but its just the same. It's like if it's far too sensitive or something like that??
