On my new pc dvd playback from the harddrive or from either of my optical drives (Pioneer DVR-110, Samsung SH-D162 )
is very choppy and i have no idea why.
However i did manage it to play perfectly just after updating the drivers for the optical drives, then the next day it was back to choppy.
I have tried several dvd playing software and all are the same.
On playback, the cpu usage for the software ranges from 48 to 50. It hardly every goes over and if it does goes to like 51. Its like it only wants to run from one core, but i tought that would even be enough.
I have also tried increasing the priority to the applications with no differance.
