  1. I have a few DVD's of a multiple disc set that seem to glitch during payback. The majority playback just fine but a few are unwatchable because the glitching is just too annoying. Would it be any help to re-author, re-burn or convert these few DVD's to a different format to correct this glitching? Or is the original uncorrectable? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Yes, glitching on multiple playback DVD players as well as on the computer. The Discs are brand new but 3 of the 21 Disc set just simply have this glitching and are unwatchable.

    Where in the world? Umm... not sure exactly what you mean but I'll just say... here, at my home. I tried reburning these 3 onto new Verbatim discs using Nero, but made no difference.

    The 21 disc set is of a TV show called "The Practice" where there are about 8 episodes on each disc. The set was purchased online at TVDVDMania.com and which of course they won't even answer my e mails about the problem. Most playback fine but the treee just are unwatcable and was hoping I could re-author (or something) these to make them watchable.

  5. Is there a way I could post one of the episodes on line to demonstrate this glitching?

    Dylan McDermott stars?,,the american show.

    The reason this information is useful is to give you good advice, if it is that show, the set you have is not an official release and therefore we know it has been burnt not pressed.

    Knowing that means they probbaly used cheap media, you may be lucky and can copy them to better media, are the discs surfaces clean, no finger prints etc.

    Sorry but when you buy from a source like that is a risk

  7. Yes, this is true. Yes, the Dylan M series. I was hoping I could try and correct it by re-burning but probably the old adage will apply; "garbage in, garbage out."

    you could try dvd fab decrpyter or http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ISOBuster

    Make sure nothing else is running on your computer and one of these will probably get most of the data, then use good media, TY/Verbatim to burn and also do a backkup of the whole set.

    Out of interest get the media code and let us know.

  9. The SKU is simply 70 Titled THE PRACTICE DVD COLLECTION. I did try VSO ConvertXtoDVD and as I was converting log was showing theat "Audio discrepacncy - Audio Segments missing. I'm assuming that's what was causing the A/V glitches. I'll give ISO buster a shot though I've never used it before.
