    every DVD I burn with DVD Maker plays fine for about 7 or 8 chapters and then
    the picture gets all messed up digitally and ultimately my player gives me a
    'CANNOT READ DISC' error message. The movies play fine on my computer
    through the DVD drive or even just the video files themselves. It's making
    me crazy. Please help!

  2. Sounds like one of these is not compatible with your dvd player, as the disc
    plays fine on your pc you have made it ok for that.
    Type of disc +/- R/RW SL/DL
    Brand of disc
    bitrate used
    filled the dvd
    burned too fast, slower burn speeds make better discs

    thanks for the reply. i probably should have mentioned in the initial post
    that this is a new problem. i've burned numerous successful dvds that play
    fine and without any hiccups. but this new problem is occurring consistently
    on all movies burned in the past 2-3 weeks. i've had my computer since may
    and never had any issues. it's strange because the first 7-8 chapters play
    flawlessly, but every time, in chapter 8 (i think it's 8) the image gets all
    pixelated and choppy and then the error message comes up. but when i pop it
    into my computer, it plays fine.

  4. Still the same answers though I'm afraid, but I would also add that maybe
    teh burner is failing or the dvd player to the list.
    What discs did you use?
    What bitrate?
    how full is the disc?
    What speed did you burn at?
    Have you cleaned the dvd writer and player?
