I seemed to reduced playback jitters by reducing the burn speed to 4X. No real science behing this, but when going through a copy at 16X, I used to get freezes.
When I run a quality control check of the master, I run through all the chapters, play to the end to make sure it links back to the main menu, and run the entire disc at 16X search speed. If the PC and a stand-alone do these correctly, I’m assured that clients won’t have any problems.
As a side note… I bought spindles of TDK DVD-R printables from Costco and they were all bad. Both 50 and 100 packs had an area just outside the hub area that looked like a narrow scratch or recorded section.
TDK’s +Rs were fine.
