Lack of information, what o/s, how much memory/what cpu/graphic card.

I didnt know i needed to give so many details about my pc as i thought it could be down to dvd or software.
Im using xp pro, amd duron 800mhz, 256mb ram,30 gb hard drive, im not sure how to check graphics card & sound card, ive already tried unplugging broadband usb, my audio output conections are fine as i have no trouble playing mp3'3s, though cd rom is a bit tempramental,the sound skips a little,i thought maybe cause my cd rom is a few years old & a little cheap that it could be doing that.
thanx

hi again triflesterms i really have no idea what the problem could be with your player but of the suggestions others have gave you to try on your other threads, what exactly have you tried so far? have you tried another software dvd player?

try this:

click 'control panel/system/hardware/device manager' and right click your dvd drive, combo drive or cd drive etc and choose 'uninstall' then restart your computer.

if you still get the jitters go back to device manager and expand 'ide/ata atapi controllers' then choose the primary and secondary channels in turn, right click each one and choose 'properties/advanced settings' and choose 'dma if available'

if the above doesnt work bin your drive and buy another. sorry all i can think of.

Ive tried closing all programs & unplugging broadband usb. plus both of you suggestions, unfortunatly its still got the jitters.
The dvd rom shouldnt be behaving like this considering that i have only watched a few dvds on it over the last 6months or so.
I suppose i could try taking it back though im not sure they will have it back considering how long ive had it.
Maybe someone else has some ideas?
thanx a lot for your help.
