    Default why do some of my backups freeze with 10 min or so left?

    i have backed up, alot of movies,a nd use verbatim media, and for some reason, some of them, freeze with 10 min or so left, i use dvefab, and shrink, and burn with dvddecrypter, i just do the main movie, and always tale out the extra language, etc, so, it doesnt have to compress as much, any ideas? once in a while a movie will get pixilated or freeze for a second as well

    burning too fast with older firmware or an iffy burner and burning to the edge of the disk usually causes such problems

    a nero burn log will give some clues

    You could post a burn log. After the burn log is posted, whatever happens, I would suggest burning with ImgBurn which is Dvd Decrypters burn engine updated.

    Edit: I gotta type faster.

    without a burn log we can't tell, the vast majority of verbatim has been good media

    just load a blank in and open dvddecrypter and post this part of the right window

    a110 gives me a111 from aopen?

    and your a04b firmware is listed there, I think we have a winner

    boot into safe mode and update the empty drive

    click on the a110, I just downloaded, you don't want your old firmware again

    let's give the old boy one last shot

    only go to safe mode after downloading
