My Sony DVPNC85 player has recently begun skipping and pausing when playing DVDs. IT seems to happen to most disks, but never occurred before. Any have this issue?

I actually purchased a new NC85 and have the exact same issue. When I play the same disk on my older panasonic dvd recorder, it plays fine. It also does not skip on my very old Sony single disk player?

Yeah, I had a Toshiba DVD/DVD-A player for a couple of years, and then it started skipping like that. I cleaned the lens, but it didn't help. it was time for a new player.

That's what I thought, so I bought a new one and had the same problems. I did not mention that this was only on DVD -R disks recorded on my PC. Store bought DVDs have no problem.

LOL - just a minor omission.

That's the odd thing. Even the brand new NC85 I bought skips at the same exact places as the older one on the disks. I only find it odd because the issue does not occur on other machines (that are not HDMI) in the house.

Yeah, minor issue you left out there. #1 problem is bad media, and most burnable DVDs are just bad. The best course of action is to use only Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden. They cost more for a reason. Store your burned (and unburned) discs away from daylight. #2, don't try to burn them too fast. It just isn't worth saving a couple minutes when the discs eventually won't play. I typically don't go over 4x but sometimes do 6x. Those discs which have trouble in the Sony but not others will most likely eventually have problems in all players.
