trouble with quicktime

Hi, so I exported these video files as quicktime movs. They play smooth on my comp. I then burn them to DVD. They play for a few seconds than stutter to a stop then stutter/skip through the timeline. I play it on different comps with the same results. I re-burn with different discs and get the same results. I play past quicktime discs that I have made and it runs smoothly. I open the corrupted movs on different players and get the same crappy results. I use premiere pro 1.5 with sorenson 3 compression. This workflow has never let me down and even the finished exported files look great...until I put them on a disc. Any ideas? Thanks.
i assume from this that you are burning the qt onto the dvd as data rather that a dvd encode. in which case the simple fact is that the computers cant 'stream' the qt's quickly enough for playback. either make data dvds with qt of a very low bitrate or burn encoded dvds for viewing.

very good answers thanks guys. So my dvd rom isn't fast enought to stream? So that means its just a problem with the computer not anything defective with the actual disc?
you can check if the mov files on the DVD are OK by simply copying them from DVD back to the harddrive and then play them from harddrive - if the copying procedure went smoothly and the files play OK from harddrive then the DVD ROM is not fast enough
