    I was trying to backup a copy of In the Name of the Father, released 1998, Region 1, and I am getting some "choppy" video playback. I've had this same issue with other dvd's which I will report later.

    Anyways, I've tried just copying the DVD title and cloning the DVD, because sometimes if copying doesn't work, cloning might, but in this case it did not. Therefore, I just wanted to know if there is anything I might be able to do to fix the problem, if not, maybe I can give slysoft a heads up for some older dvd titles. Thanks.

    Poor playback generally indicates a choice of poor quality media in the process....

    I've had a similar issue, but only in 2 cases.

    One, when I've had a huge system load on the desktop; once I didn't notice I was running a security program which was scanning all of the data, it was thought to be removed from the desktop or paused, but was somehow running in the background. :doh:

    Two, in backing up my, :ahem: adult entertainment. :eek: So it might have something to do with source and dropped frames in video.

    For me it's a choppy instance where it drops several frames in playback or jumps a half second in viewing. Haven't noticed this on a major cinematic release aside from the one time I was backing up while running security programs.:D

    This is not an Anydvd issue.

    from Frequently Asked Questions (READ BEFORE YOU POST)

    9. Why are my backups freezing, skipping, or showing a blocky pixellated mess during playback?

    1. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    2. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji, TDK from Costco, and Maxell that are not made in Japan are not good quality media). Are you using inferior blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden Premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer is yes.
    If you use poor quality blank media, then you should expect problems.


    3. Try lowering your burn speed a little (if you have a 16x burner and 16x rated media try writing to it at 12x or 8x instead of 16x)

    4. If you're using +R, +RW, or +R DL media, change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (step 3)

    5. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)

    6. Try setting a custom size of 4300 in whatever burning program you're using (but if you're using good media, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs.

    7. Download Nero cd-dvd speed. It's a free program. Select the tab labeled "scandisc". Insert the problematic backup disc, select the appropriate drive letter, and click "start". If Nero cd-dvd speed reports read errors, your backup is bad (which is the most likely case), your optical drive may be slowly dying, or your optical drive simply doesn't like the disc (or your choice of blank media)--even if the disc looks fine.

    Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs (see step 6)
    and also at layer breaks when using low quality DL media (use Verbatim +R DL media made in Singapore, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")
