hello, love the software, backed up four with no problems, however, the last 2 i tried( snatch and devil's advocate) started out ok, but about 5 min in they start getting choppy to the point the sound is off from the actor's mouth movements and finally you can't take it anymore, im using a p4 205 pc, with 30gb hard drive, 256 ram, panasonic (matshita) dvd ram drive @1x speed. any help will be appreciated, thanks!!

Dumb question for ya. Screensavers off when you burn? Any access to shared files or applications on the burning PC while it's burning?

Your buffer can be dumping because of performance issues which may be related to otuside issues or something as simple as a screen saver stealing CPU cycles.

nacnac,
If you are using a firewall such as ZoneAlarm you can right click on it in TaskBar and choose Stop All Internet Activity

thanks toolman! i went ahead and unplugged the cable so the shared files part would be disconnected. im backing up xxx now, i will see if that does anygood.is there a such thing as too big a movie in xcopyxpress? also,when i say choppy, it's more like rainfade on direct tv, you can see the video *liquify*, like it does when rain comes in on dtv........

So long as you're using a router the traffic is not going through or affecting the PC. Do you share any files or applications from that PC? What media re you using? What players?

Have you tried reburning one of the first four that were successful? Has anything on the system changed since the last known good copy? Same blank media?

You know, I have to wonder how many people are using a DVD-RAM drive to do this and what the compatibility is, although the fact you feel you successfully burned four discs makes me wonder.

You say, the movie gets "choppy". Pixelated? As in the screen becomes blocky? Or, does the audio and video get out of synch? If you stop the movie and restart does it clear up and then get bad again? How does the copy play on your PC? Do you have a DVD-ROM to RIP from or do you RIP and burn from the DVD-RAM drive?

not sharing any files, especially now that the network cable is unplugged, im using memorex dvd-r. it's the same as what i have been using(office depot has them on sale), i haven't tried to view on my pc, i will. i have been using the same dvd burner to read and burn, but i do have a dvdrom in the pc as well, i didn't know you could read from a rom and burn with a different burner in xpress, if so i need to do that, my rom is way faster. thanks again guys!!

Try the movies in the DVD-ROM. Also yes, for burning, put a blank in your burner, put the original in the DVD-ROM, let it play for 10- 15 seconds, then shut down the player software (PowerDVD or whatever), then start Xpress.

If the movies play in your DVD-ROM, then first thing I'd do is dump what I assume you are using, 2.01 and install 2.0. You didn't say what player (s) you have but 2.0 will provide better set top player compatibility.
