I have an HP dvd1040e External 20x Multiformat Dvd Writer that I just bought.
I burned a dvd-rw with it with ImgBurn and everything went well, it finished without any errors.
However, when I go to play the dvds back on my dvd players, I tried the 4 that we have, they always freeze up on the same parts on 3/4 of the dvd players.
They don't freeze up on my computer or on my Sansui VRDVD4001 player but they freeze up on the other 3: two Sylvania Dvc841G and one Emerson built into the tv. The dvd-rws are Maxwell 2x.

My question is why would the dvds freeze up in the exact same parts on some dvd players but play just fine on the other one and on the computer? Is there a way to fix this? I'm not sure what the problem is.

Some dvd players do not do well will dvdrw's.... Also you may try a different brand as some work better than others on a wider scale...

Ok, thanks. Also does dvd-r work better with dvd players? I would have used them in the first place but I wanted to make sure I didn't have to waste a dvd because of an error.

yep... the only problem is you need to check the dvd player you are thinking of using some support dvd-r and some support dvd+r and some support both.

You could try videohelp.com a they have lists of compatibilities and such.
