MY DVD player Keeps Freezing


Hi

I took my pc to bestbuy to fix my dc rw and my dvd player cause neither worked--- the CD RW wouldnt read blanck cds and the DVD player would freeze every 30 seconds when watching a movie and stay froze from anywher from 10 second to 30 seconds

Well they fixed the CD RW - had to buy a new one and they said they fixed the DVD player... lol no they didnt fix that

Just got done trying to watch man apart - froze every 30 secodns fro atlest 5 seconds then got longer to like 30 seconds

Anyone know why this is

DVD PLAYER - Norcent DVD ROM 16x
MOTHERBOARD - Soyo Dragon KT333 Lite
GRAPHICS CARD - Radeon 7000
PROCESSOR - AMD ATHLON XP 2100+ 1.73 GHZ
OS - Windows XP

RAM? Just a guess though.

I get a touch of split second freezing from time to time on my Samsung DVD player, so I can imagine it's driving you around the bend having to deal with that.

You checked to make sure the DVD is not scratched?

Your only other option would be to try running a DVD off your computer and not the actual DVD Player and see if you get the same problems.

Hmmm ... sounds more like a software problem then anything. What app are you using to watch your movies?

Upgraded your graphics drivers lately? Could be caused by bad sound drivers also depending on your sound settings..

Have you tried other DVD's.
Many DVD's will play fine in a dedicated player but the DVD drives are more sensitive to scratches etc.

Do you have access to another DVD drive? Maybe borrow one from a friend. Then you can establish if it's the drive or not.

My grpahics card is radeon 7000 - do I need to upgrade? When you say upgrade do you mean updates or buy a better graphcis card - as it works for eveyrthing else

My sound card is an on board with my mobo - KT333 LITE from soyo - plays all my cds and all never had probs there...

Onboard sound cards can be a huge problem when it comes to compatibility issues.

Yes ... yes we do. But try to find a dvd drive that you can install and test in your system ... it would help you to figure it out.

also, is DMA enabled on the IDE controller the dvd drive is conntected too.

DMA usually improoves dvd performance bigtime.

especially if you have slower hardware, eg, slow soundcard
