redshift300,

Do you have a hardware decoder?.

redshift is DMA (direct memory access) enabled..........I had similar problem with the above disabled

This system worked OK for about the last year.
Power DVD and DMA switched on

Another thought, could ram cause this problem.
What hardware decoder do you recommend.

You could test if it's ram by turning off non-vital b/g progs. Could be sound card driver.

Wonder if you have tried stopping the Virus checker, it could be slowing your machine a lot?
Maybe checking everything from your DVD drive?
Disable it, and thry the DVD Movie them.
