Default Problems when you receive DVD's

Can someone tell me what causes FREEZE SPOTS on a DVD? I been requesting most shows on DVD since I plan to become a DVD trader soon and some of the DVD's I received, when you watch them there are parts of the show when it FREEZES and starts up again(Something that never happens on VHS). So what is it a DVD trader must do in order to prevent a person from receiving a Show with constant freezing?

I had this problem with some dvd's i made when i tried an el cheapo dvd brand. i was so hot over that - i had to reburn everything onto a good brand disc -- ritek is my choice, ive never had a coaster, out of 600 or so discs. now, the bad ones i got were called velocity. i got both from amazon. if you copy one of your freezing discs onto a different kind and the problem goes away, then you'll know.

It has nothing to do with a DVD Player needing to be cleaned because I have other DVD's I received that didn't SKIP. So it was something the trader did wrong

Your player may not like that brand of dvd. Happens often.
Play the disc in another player or on your computer's dvd rom.
If the disc plays fine, just copy the disc onto a different dvd

I always attribute it to a bad disc, or a bad sector on a disc. Yes, sometimes a re-burn will fix the problem, if the disc can be read to burn. Else, you have to ask the sender for a re-do. Most people are aware of this issue and are happy to do so.

The DVD statement is not possible.
The VHS statement does not make any sense.

Default Problems when you receive DVD's

If there are no noticeable scratches, scuffs, fingerprints, etc. on the disc, you probably have a bad sector burned onto the disc. There is a program called CD Check that I have used to salvage several DVD's that freeze up. It is not a magic fix all program but it has worked for me on the occasions when I have used it.

Just for the record many DVD players play multiple formats and they aren't very expensive

I think it may be the media. Some DVD players have problems playing video burned on certain discs. For example, I've found that the crapier noname brand discs tend to have this "freezing" problem on my DVD player more often than not. So, I only buy name brands like Sony, TDK, and Fuji. Those seem to work well. You might also try a slower burn like 2x instead of 16x or whatever.

Hope this helps.

Read this: http://www.nomorecoasters.com
That basically explains everything you need to know about DVD media.
Including understanding why discs have problems.

it is due to the player , because alot of my dvds skipped up until the time i bought a new player and they work perfectly (by the way Philips DVD players are the best by far)!

Excellent post RareTV, thanks for all that info. Only thing I want to add is:

Quote:
This can often be fixed by ripping the VOBs from the DVD and re-authoring and re-burning the DVD.
While that is sometimes necessary, I often find I can "fix" the problem by ripping the entire disc and re-burning, thus saving the time of re-authoring.

Burning at too high of a speed can cause freezing while playing (or cause problems with the DVD after it's played a time or two). On afterdawn.com, they recommend to never burn faster than 4x and 2x is better.

This is a myth. You can burn as fast as the media is rated. Bad media does not burn well at the rated speed, nor at other speeds either most times. Not to mention, in the age of 8x and 16x burns, telling somebody to burn at 2x is wholly unreasonable. In fact, burning media too slow can often be as bad as burning it too fast!
