STILL skipping

Recommended Posts

Okay... so most probably remember my prevois questions about skipping disks.

 

Well i took the advice and bought taiyo yudengs ( 02's) and got some very successful burns. I haven't burned for a couple weeks and now i'm trying some again and they are skipping again. Any ideas what the issue could be? Should I post a log?

the other thing i've noticed with the ones that are skipping yesterday and today, is that they usually (except for the odd few) start skipping an hour to an hour an a half into the movie....?

Do you have a drive (or access to one) that can do PIPO/Disc Quality scanning in DVDInfoPro/Opti Drive Control/CDSpeed?

You're using an internal slimline drive at the moment yeah?

 

Time to buy a normal sized external! (Or normal sized internal and a usb enclosure) Make it a LiteOn and you'll be able to do the PIPO scans - as seen in our drive/media testing forums.

The burner in my desktop is a regular burner... tray pops out to take the disc, but the one in my laptop is one where you just slide in the disc into the computer without a tray. that is slimline right? So that's the one that needs replacing?

 

any recommendations as to a brand?

Okay, STILL these discs are skipping. I've stopped using two different burners and stayed with just the new one. I'm burning to Taiyo Yudens as suggested and STILL my discs are skipping. More frequently now too. Really REALLY frustrating. Here's the log of the latest bad burn.

No need to start a new thread. Consider them merged.

 

Weren't you going to buy a new drive?

 

Get a LiteOn so you can do PIPO scanning, test the discs to see the burn quality.

 

If they come out fine then your playback device probably has the issue.

 

The ball is in your court, we can't magically fix your issue.

I've been playing them on all different dvd players. given them to friends too to see what the problem is. BOTH my burners can't have died at the same time, and have the same issues when the discs are played back. Could it be a bad spindle of discs?

and if you see my post a few rows up... i did ask advice about a lite-on burner to see if that is a good model, but i had no feedback so i'm just stuck.

Yes it could be a bad spindle of discs - or even some fake ones.

 

Drive wise, I expect any of the latest models will do.

 

You're allowed to do your own research you know :)

 

I only use Google / CDFreaks (or myce as it's now known) etc like most people do.

 

Take a look at the places you normally buy computer bits from and see what they have. Then work out what's best from the ones available to you.

I recently had a post about my taiyo yudens skipping, and i was finally confinced to get a new burner. So i got a liteon burner and want to run a quality check on my disc, but i can't remember how it was suggested i do it. I believe it was in my post about the skipping discs, but i can't find the post. where'd it go. I hate to ask the same questions again (i know it bugs you) so i was hoping to just pull up that last posting and answre the questions from that. help.
