Hey everyone,

I have a HP pavilion dv4000 laptop. Recently I've been burning media files onto my DVD drive (movies, music, tv shows, etc) to free up space on my harddrive. So I naturally tested the new dvds I burned and watched a few episodes of Seinfeld... but I noticed that there were moments when the dvd drive was working that the video and audio got very jerky. After that, every dvd movie that I put into my dvd drive is laggy and jerky, in terms of audio and video. I don't know much about dvd burners and their life expectancy on laptops. I've only had this laptop for about 8 months. Is this a codec issue, or is my DVD burner dying? The drive seems to play cd games just fine (Warcraft III, diablo, etc) but can't seem to burn cds and dvds anymore. (Laptop freezes when I tried). Any suggestions on what I should try to remedy the situation? I don't want to jump the gun and call HP and have them send me some refurbished junk if I can fix this myself...

Thanks in advance.
