I currently have Power DVD on my laptop to play movies through the combo dvd/CDRW drive. When i play a dvd it always skips slighty bout every other second, especially when 'large' shots are on the screen, if it is just one persons face in focus it plays fine, if the camera pans over a large landscape of audince it starts sticking and skipping! I have tried shutting everything i can down on my taskbar but it still does it. have tried restarting and watching the dvd as first thing but still nothing! has anyone got any ideas or can they suggest another dvd player that i can download to use? i have interactual player but it seems to do the same thing, could it be my actual drive? any suggestions?
