jerky DVD playback

When playing a dvd with realplayer or powerdvd, it is not smooth and keeps stopping and starting?

I have downloaded that lastest driver for my graphocs card.

I have xp.

as dfghjkl say's have you got DMA enabled on the drive? To do this go to the device manager, expand the ide ata/atapi controller list, right click on each ide if you don't know which the dvd drive is installed on and go to the properties option, this should bring a new dialogue box up, click on the advanced settings tab and make sure DMA is enabled (or the option that says DMA if available).
