skipping dvd/cdr drive

  SimianBenzoate 23:39 16 Apr 2004

a friend of mine has a pc running win xp home. recently the optical drive, a combination dvd/cdr drive, has started skipping on playback of dvds and music cd's. however, copying data from the drive to the hard disc isnt a problem, and music files ripped from cds onto the hard disc are free from the skipping exhibited during direct playback from the cd. lens cleaners have no effect... any ideas what could be wrong? im not sure what drive make it is but i think its a fairly generic unit, came installed in their packard bell pc...
