Strange DVD Playback Artifacts

Archived from groups: rec.video.desktop (More info?)

I just burned a new DVD-R disk (Pioneer 104 burner),
and when I play it in my set top DVD player, there
are horizontal video artifacts. They look like thinner
versions of the way DV video often breaks up, but
with much softer and rounder borders. I also see
these artifacts when I play the disk in another computer,
using a Pioneer 107 drive. I don't see the artifacts when
I play the disk in the computer that burned it. I also don't
see the artifacts when I play the .VOB files from the hard drive.

I have burned many disks without this happening before, so
I am very puzzled.

Anyone else have this happen?

    I copied one of the .VOB files from the disk to a hard drive,
    and it played fine, so this is a disk issue. I'll try a different
    kind of disk to see if this makes a difference.
