CD Drive skips when playing video!

I bought an Audio CD the other day, to find there was a video on it of the tune in question. However when I try and view the video, it plays fine, but it skips and jumps the video!

Im wondering if my CD Drive should be altered onto another IDE cable? Is this correct, or does anyone have any further suggestions?

Cheers.

Could it be a screensaver, power saving option or AV running or trying to run?

maybe it is something to do with the video side of things

graphics driver?

what are other videos played like

copy the video file from the cd to your hardrive and run the video from there see if it makes any difference

Whats the PC specification?

Could also be the codecs need updating.

i used to have a p1,133 and that did the same.when i got a p11,350 all was fine so i guess they are the min specs,you dont say what pc you have,

It is unlikely to be anything to do with what cable your player is connected to. More likely that your PC spec (video card, main processor, memory) can't handle the video.
