Jumpy DVD playback

  mwallwin 21:20 18 Dec 2004

I have been running top spec (all 2Ghz above) for many years now, all XP. Every machine plays DVDs jumpy-video and sound.My latest PC is custom built-Athlon 2700XP,512DDR,Radeon 9700pro..the playback is still hopeless.I can now only assume this is an XP fault...Any recomendations? Checked all the usual-Defrag, DirectX-all fine...

I have just installed a DVD and I tried it with a free decoder - JetAudio. The video seemed jerky to me so I replaced JetAudio with Power DVD (free trial version) and the video played much better.

I am using InterVideo Win 6. I have alos used Win Media Player 9 and 10, Power DVD, all legit copies and still very jumpy. As for cleaning the lense-my last 3 PCs have had the same problem-all brand new drives..This is driving me crazy! I have a fantastic monitor and cant watch my movies! Let me know if any more info is needed. I really apprecite your help!

Have you thought that some of your hardware is fighting eachother???? e.g. your motherboard may not "like" using your "graphics card"

Have considered that but cannot find any conflict with the 2...ABIT AT7-MAX2, VIA KT100 chipset, AGP 8X and TYAN Tachyon G9600 PRO, 400MHz engine clock; 600MHz memory clock, 128 MB dual channel 128bit DDR memoryHydravision and dual 400MHz DACs DVI-I...
