Strange DVD Burner/Player Problem

For some reason any movies I watch on the DVD burner of my HTPC freeze and stop playing at a certain point. This varies depending on the movie, but it's always towards the end of a movie with about 15 minutes left. Is there something wrong with the laser that won't read past a certain point or something? Anyone else have a similar problem or know of any potential solutions?

Are these burned movies, or does it do it with store-bought movies as well? I had this problem, but it was related to bad burns/crappy media. My original dvds played fine in it.

These are genuine DVDs. I know the issue is player related since the movies play fine on my other computer.

It could be having problems with the layer change.

Nope. Does this on DVDs without layer changes.
