Default CD-Rs...and videos

Hey....i didn't know you can burn CD-Rs with videos on them and play them on your DVD player......anyway..

I burn videos onto CD-Rs....but it kept like freezing every 2 seconds when i played a video....

I used a cyber-home dvd player(40 bucks)
I used cheap CD-Rs (the ones in walmart which come in 50s for 11 bucks.... Something with a D, it has a D symbol on the CD)

I dunno what the problem is.....I burned different vids. on different cd's and they all froze every 2 seconds...really quick freezes...so it doesn't make the Video enjoyable..

What is the problem..... the CD-Rs....The dvd player....Or the software??(I use Sonic RecordNow!)

How do I make the videos function properly...

I had that problem, because I had MSN and Mozilla Firefox running in the Background, make sure no programs are running while your burning your disks.
AMD Athlon XP 3200|256 MB XFX GeForce 5500 Video Card|512 DDR Ram|160 GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive|AU31 Micro-ATX Motherboard|Intergrated Sound Card|EMachines Computer Case |EMachines Stock Keyboard + Mouse|Samsung 7e 17' CRT Monitor|EDIROL MA-10D Speakers

Before i had a dvd burner i experimented with video CDs. I used nero and found that you can alter the bitrate to fit more. You should use the default bitrate because it is most compatible with stand alone dvd players. If it still does not work, up the bitrate or try something like uleads' dvd movie factory trial. it can be downloaded at their site but dont bother unless you have fast internet.

good luck
