I have two Liteon burners (SHM-165P6S) and recently burned some data to a dual layer disc (Verbatim DVD+R DL 8X). The data files (JPEGs, drivers, etc) are fine but whenever I try to play videos from the disc Windows Media Player locks and I have to close it (version 11). Sometimes it will play but it eventually just locks up.
Thinking that I burned the disc at too high-speed I made a copy of it this morning at 4X and still no luck with videos. I even copied one onto my desktop and it said WMP 11 cannot playback the file. I tried another video from a disc burned in an old Plextor drive and videos played great. I'm using Roxio EMC 9 with Windows XP Professional and Service Pack 2.
The drives work flawlessly with anything I throw at them (DVDs, CDs, etc). Do I have bad discs or have I missed something? Maybe I need to try different brand media? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
