However, if these players play commercial CDs over 74 minutes, it could be tha fault of the burner and/or the blank used.

Sony's new Precision Drive™ 3 system simplifies the process by moving the lens-instead of the entire optical block-for faster and more accurate error correction."But looking at reviews the players don't necessarily I have tried many of my scratched DVDs on it and Panny has played them without a hitch. A sign of this is if you have no problem playing older Blu-Rays, but new ones simply don’t work. Mal, Sep 24, 2005 #6 bordin New Member Location: Pittsburgh, PA, USA I see.
From what I know of it, the probably is caused either by mismatched framerates on the movie, or possibly an error in the source or encoder. New protections are put out all of the time on new discs and if you have an older drive you simply might not have the right keys to decrypt the disc. The firmware is like an operating system for the drive, telling it when to spin, where to move the read/write head, and so on. Hopefully it's still out there somewhere.
May 29, 2009 Why are my GPS locations so damn accurate? I didn't know there were good, scratch-tolerant players.I have a Sony DVD player circa 2000 that is excellent with scratches. Do SACD players, DVD-A and DVD players generally have better error correction than CD players when it comes to playing CDs? This is about using laser to make a series of holes on the reflective material layer of the disc.
check the drive with another disc, alternatively try the disc in another drive. http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/which-cd-player-has-the-best-error-correction.369765/ Do you have evidence that your DVD player is somehow worse than other players out there? Best Dvd Player For Scratched Discs Is this a good drive or is it not as good as the AAP. (is there anyway you can cross flash it to the AAP?) But i would like a good Samsung Sh-216bb Thus a CD-R burned from this ripped data may not have any of the hard to correct errors that were uncorrectable in real-time playback of the original.
I use a PS3 as my main DVD player (after having used a fairly expensive Philips player for seven years) and I've yet to have a disc skip in it. useful reference In the CD (PCM encoding), you need to use standard error correction techniques, still the old ones, no matter what player you use. So it occurred to me that perhaps it is time for investing on a new disc player. AOL CDs are for playing frisbee with, not your DVDs. :D Ken Garrison is offline post #5 of 17 Old 11-27-2002, 08:45 PM fireshoes AVS Special Member Join

Factory pressed CDs are made by stamping the polycarbonate with a glass master thus making a pitted surface upon which a reflective material (usually aluminium but sometimes gold) is "sputtered". Just rock solid fast scratch tolerant. And what you have found on the internet regarding blu-ray players more sensitive to scratches is true.
As such, I am hoping to get a Blu-ray player that is more robust in terms of its DVD error correction ability and has a reliable laser. only certain errors can be corrected. The Oppo players are tempting, particularly since I use a projector with only component inputs (no HDMI), and I recall at least one model putting out a good signal over component... It's two years old and is compatible with DVD-A but I don't think it's anything special.
The same disk plays without a hitch in my Sony PS2, and on my iMac. Just hold the SHIFT key while loading up, and disk will stop soon - no auto load of programs or bootloaders Reply Dave Drager September 28, 2010 at 1:34 pm Thanks fireshoes is offline post #6 of 17 Old 11-27-2002, 09:14 PM hob Join Date: Jul 2001 Posts: 3,407 Mentioned: 0 Post(s) Tagged: 0 Thread(s) Quoted: 0 Post(s) Liked: get redirected here One stretched the hyperbole to saying it would play anything that hadn't been through a shredder.
Good to hear! Conclusion: There is a very real difference between players, they're not all the same, and price is not necessarily an indicator. Are they doing it because consumers (people like us) are not complaining about it, or they just want people to keep on buying new DVD disks and new DVD players? Anecdotally, I feel like I've had less trouble with rentals since upgrading to my Oppo 970, but that's compared to a 2nd/3rd?
Otherwise I agree that any typical brand (Toshiba, Pioneer etc.) ought to play any disc that's in reasonable shape, just fine. [ I also see products advertised for cleaning your DVD Otherwise, I just rip everything to a media centre, which has the added bonus of bypassing all those federal warnings about piracy.Perhaps invest in a scratch-removal machine?
