DVD buring for DVD player playback

Specs: Windows XP, 252
Hello, I just bought a Sony 200 DVD jukebox at a thrift shop (it's an older model from 2000) and I'm coping all my TV series DVDs to DVD+R discs and removing all the menus etc so i can shuffle play all my DVDs. I bought Sony DVD-R and DVD+R discs and the DVD player does not play the -R burnt discs correctly, but does play the +R burnt discs, I just bought a USB 2.0 card so my external DVD burner will burn discs faster. Now since it's burning discs at the setting of maximum speed, i notice some glitches in playback. Certain parts of the DVD will cause the DVD player to skip back, play up till that point again and will do the same. Now question is, if I set the burner to write at a slower 4X speed will the DVD's will burn much better without glitches in playback on my DVD player?

It is best to burn slower than faster especially when involving external burners IMHO !

DVD -R is a newer standard, +R was the norm in the early noughties.

DVD-R's may have to be finalized. I finalize all recordings both +R and -R to assure maximum compatibility,

I set the burner at 4x speed and the dvds now play fine, i just realized that factory recorded dvds are recorded on DVD double layer. I wasted a bunch of dvds cramming 8+ gigs to a single DVD+R. now i've been spiting them into two discs so i can keep the quality. I use clonedvd with anydvd. clonedvd finalizes the project after burn, or at least it says it before done
