my dvd players

on my emachines, i'm havin trouble with my dvd player drive.

Windows Media Player and InterActual player, both crash when i load and press the play button.

my PowerDVD plays most dvds but many of the stutter their way through, which is unbeleiveably annoying!

have uninstalled,re-installed both MediaPlayer Series 9, and Interaactual(got it free with my Oceans Eleven dvd), but the moment i select them to play the dvd, they crash.

do you think its a prob with the Drive itself?
