So this is the first time I have a DVD rom on my computer, I just bought it. Sony one, really nice. Anyways, for some reason my movies are really choppy and slow. Like... my computer isnt good enough. BUt my friend has a computer a little worse than mine and his dvds play fine? Any suggestions. This also happens when i try to play movies in WMP in full screen mode , its very laggy and slow, it used to be ok.

are your dvds clean no scratches does it happen when your online or offline

what type of antivirus you have


maybe some programs are cluttering your computer

run your disk cleaner and defragmenter

heres an option


GO START>>>RUN >>TYPE IN >> prefetch >>CLICK OK then click on edit on any file click delete


download this and run it

You need better video codecs...

Do the following. Unless you specifically subcribe to and/or download music by paying with the following programs, then erase them.

Quicktime
Realplayer
Xvid
Divx

Also uninstall whatever program you use to play your dvd ( dont uninstall windows media player ) just uninstall your codec for it. If you dont know what a codec is, forget it.

Then download this,
http://www.fileshari..._codec_pack.php
scan it if you want to be sure its free of viruses ( which it is ), and install it, do a complete options install from the drop down list.

When its done installing, CLICK YES TO DISABLING ALL FILTERS IN THE INSTALLATION, itll ask you that I think 2 times. Once you are done, your dvd shouldnt be choppy and you will be able to play any movie and music file.


Note: If you use quicktime for ipod or itunes or something, you will have to reinstall quicktime most likely after you do this. If you dont have an ipod then dont worry about it.
