sound cuts in and out of dvd player

Hi, I have a HP L2000 laptop with a pioneer DVDRW DVR-K15 dvd player

When I play a dvd, the picture is ok but the sound cuts in and out. It is like
if the computer can't handle playing video and sound together. If I put in a CD alone, it plays ok.

Do I need a new driver for the DVD drive?

Help!

Thanks

Check to be sure the DVD drive is in UDMA mode, not PIO.

Wrecked player or drivers/codecs.

IDE controllers are a piece of hardware in the system. they are the "ribbon cables" that connect drives to the motherboard.

the poster did not physically remove them. they uninstalled them from the device manager. windows then automatically reinstalls them upon a reboot. This often solves random drive issues.
