Delay between sectors in playback

Recommended Posts

I attach the log for a recent burn.

I guess that this may reveal why, when playing the DVD on my Sony Blur--ray BDP-S3700/BDPS1700, play stops and starts between sectors.

Can anyone, with the knowledge to read the log, please advise me what has caused this problem.

There are 14 sectors, which can be selected individually and play ok, but when play full movie is selected, the problem occurs.

I would appreciate any assistance.

I'd first try a DVD-R other than those made by Ritek.  (Disc ID: RITEKF1)  Ritek can cause a lot of burning, Verify, and playback issues.  Try Verbatim DataLife Plus/AZO media.  NOT the Life Series media you find in brick and mortar stores; that's worse than Ritek!   You'll only find the good stuff online.  I'd first rule out if it's the Ritek discs.

Thank you, dbminter, for responding to my query and you recommendation.

 

I have trawled the net and realise that purchasing good quality DVD discs can be a bit of a minefield. The Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden series being no exception when trying to ascertain country of manufacuture. However, I made a choice and will post results when I eventually complete a burn.

Be aware that the current Taiyo Yuden is not the same company of old.  The old company used to make some of the best quality media out there, and then they decided to get out of the market.  Their brand name was bought by CMC Magnetics, which makes the worst media on the market.  So, it goes to reason that CMC probably just slapped a well known name on their junk media to mislead people.

Further to last post, I forgot to mention my suprise at not receiving more comments or advice relating to my problem, the log of which I attached. Unless of course, dbminters's response was the probable reason for it.

dbminter's post pretty much covered it.

Your player probably stops and starts because it can't read the disc.

You could try and see if setting the write speed to 8x helps, but ultimately, you could do with using better discs.
