dvd jumps

  lapnutty 22:22 18 Apr 2009


every time we play any type of DVD in our drive it starts to jump/freeze - we ended up buying a new dvd rw and we still have dvd's stalling/freezing.

They are bought dvd's not copies. any ideas?

Have you run a cleaning disk in the DVD?

Often the laser head gets dirty during use and can cause this problem. Cleaning disks are available in many shops such as Smiths, larger supermarkets and even some of the hardware outlets such as Wilkinsons.

Might be worth checking to see if the secondary ide channel has reverted from dma mode to pio mode.
