we use dvd decrypter and dvd shrink and the entire process from getting it on the hard drive to burn completion takes 4 hours or more. aprox 2 hrs to get it on hard drive and 2 hrs to burn it and then its seems like its just by luck if it works. sometimes we dont have the whole movie sometimes it is digitized and or choppy. we are using the correct format of DVD ( dvd +R) when we just play a movie or a cd on our cpu the sound is well, say you are listening to a song and all of a sudden it gets slow and distorted kind of like a record palying backwards and then it goes back to normal and it will do that at least 3 to 5 times during one song. the sound does that as well during a movie or video clip on the CPU... i will post that q somewhere else but it might be relevant to this problem. anyway i want to try and fix this problem before i go out and buy a new CPU so i can burn movies and burn our home DV movies for my husband that is deployed. Thanks to anyone that has any ideas!
