When I have burned dvds in the past they have always worked well in my pc and on my stand alone dvd player. Recently however they have been prone to freezing and skipping when played on the dvd player but work fine on the pc/laptop.

I have tried several things; changing the disc type (use good quality Verbatim), used a dvd lens cleaner, tried different burning software (though all have worked fine in thepast)

I assumed I needed a new burner (currently 18 month old Sony DVD RW DW-D22A) but dvds play on the PC?? The other 'strange' thing is that the freezing/skipping doesn't happen at all until after at least 40 mins then it does it like crazy????

Has anyone got any good ideas. Would really appreciate it.

On all the DVD RW I've had they always said never use a lens cleaner on them.

I think your DVD RW is knackered, my plextor was doing the same the DVD's where fine on the PC but froze and skipped on my DVD player. Fortunately I had a 2 year warranty so I got a replacement.

If the sony only has a 12 month warranty I'm afraid you going to have to buy a new one.
