DVD movies judder on my PC

Hi all

Until recently I could play movies on my PC without any problem. Recently the DVD movies have begun to judder, both sound and picture. I have no explaination for this. I have tried everything to fix this, such as going through the DVD trouble shooter, Uninstalling Cyberlink Power Cinema and then downloading a newer version. Its driving my children and wife mad. Please help anyone.

Do you have another drive to check? It doesnt sound like that's the problem, but if it's possible, it's always good to rule out hardware error.

I have done this, when playing PC - DVD games everything is fine. I presume it must be a software problem or a problem with the snyc ing of the PC, Screen and DVD movies

Do you have other programs running at the same time?

Playing a DVD means a lot of hard work for a computer and if it's trying to do other things as well, it will try an share the jobs and thus appear to slow down.

Expanding on what €dstowe said - check for spyware as a culprit for 'other programs running'.

Hi all

I cerainly do close all other programs down when playing a DVD. I am a bit of a novice on the whole spyware thing. What is the best way for me o identify a spayware problem and deal with it?

Search the web for Ad-Aware SE There are other similar sites so double check the exact (Ad-Aware SE) address.

Download the FREE Ad-Aware SE Software and follow the instructions for a really superb free application.

You could also download the programme - Spy Remover (again use the exact site when you search) and download the free trial. - Another excellent choice.

Good luck jonjo

Have you recently installed any DVD decrypting software? If you have, this may be the culprit. As far as I know,the only way to solve the problem is to remove the decrypting software.

if you uninstall the secondary ide controller this resets the dma once you have rebooted

control panel
device manager
secondary ide/ata/atapi controllers
delete above and reboot
xp will install at correct setting
