Hi..
Bit of a problem with watching DVD's... they keep freezing for short periods. I think its something to do with the Video Accelerator (might be wrong) but im really not sure whats going on? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks :tazz:

Did the Drive ever work before? Whats the Make/model? What DVD Playback Software are you running?

Does the software for it have all its current updates and patches. (Perhaps there is a patch for the playback software you are using).

Have you checked if there are major scratches on the disk, often times, when i watch a dvd from my pc, and it lags or freezes it is because of the scratches on the disks
