What would be causing this?

  1. Ripped a film using my usual process:
    DVDshrink using deep analysis and AEC (smooth) and burned with Nero.
    The compression was in the low 60 percent.

    Played disk on computer using PowerDVD 5. Motion was very rough,
    jerky, and unnatural. Looked like it was dropping frames.

    Took the same disk and played it on my Pioneer stand alone player and
    recorder, two different machines, and motion was nice and fluid and
    natural - no problems.

    Anyway took the burned disk and made an image file of it (nrg) and
    mounted it on a virtual Deamon Drive and then played it through
    PowerDVD. Same poor motion. My conclusion is that it is not a hardware

    Do I need to update some code in windows or perhaps PowerDVD to clear
    up this problem?

    After almost 400 burns this is the first time I noticed this
    difference between playing on computer and on the stand alones and I
    would like to be able to depend on the computer playback to give my an
    accurate idea of how good my burns turn out.

    What do you think is the problem?

    There's only a limited amount of copyright violations embedded in any
    given playback system. Once this limit is exceeded, all bets are off.

    Try it with WinDVD.

    PowerDVD has bugs.


    "The scientist is possessed by a rapturous amazement at the
    harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such
    superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking
    and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection.

    "This feeling is the guiding principle of his life and work,
    in so far as he succeeds in keeping himself from the shackles
    of selfish desire. It is beyond question closely akin to that
    which has possessed the religious geniuses of all ages."

    Something is wrong with your PC. Thats the only conclusion that can be
    drawn from teh limited info you provided.

    Did you test any other titles to see if its an isolated incident or happens
    with them all now?

    Is it only on burned titles or does it do it on commercial titles as well?

    Did you make any system changes on your PC since this started happening?

    You might check the amount of free disk space and defrag status of the

  6. As far as I'm concerned the problem is solved.

    Everything else I throw at the machine runs fine except...

    ....this particular title whither the commercial original or the ripped

    I don't care what is peculiar to this particular title. It plays well
    on the standalones and I can live with that. It isn't worth the time
    trying to figure how this one title is different from all the others.

    I'm a happy camper.

  7. You don't mention what O/S you're using.
    Windows XP has a nasty habit of reverting to PIO on the IDE channel.
    You might wanna check for that and reenable DMA if applicable.

  9. What happens if you take the burned disk, put it in the computer and
    play it with some other software DVD-player?

    Try VLC (http://videolan.org/vlc) or MPC

    It locks up.
    I suppose it works OK on a Mac.

    If you don't have anything to contribute why don't you just bugger off
    and let us alone.

    You must really be desperate for attention.

    The XP version works very well on my XP machine but I did have troubles try
    to run an older version with XP.

    Do not top post. It is the sign of a newbie.

    See the thread I started entitled "MovieFactory 4 broken again".

    Let's see you fix this problem.

    The PC uses software to decode the MPEG2 on the DVD; the Pioneer is
    hardware and uses a hardware decoder. The two use slightly different
    renditions of MPEG. I've seen really strange differences, but you
    don't usually see them the first viewing!
