DVD jumps while playing on winXP

Hi,
I have DVD drive on WinXP.
Before two days, when I wanted to watch a movie, I’ve

noticed that the movie’s video & audio quality is very very

low (it seems like the audio & video is jumping)
I’ve tried to install winXP again, and it solve the problem

temporary (until i’ve restart my computer again).
Can anyone help me?

I have sony DVD DW-D22A with Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT

motherboard and I’m using BlazeDVD 3.5 Professional.

Thanks,

Adam

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Usually these problems are due to a bad burning, not to a windows problem.

What media did you use? can you post here brand and mediacode? You can retrieve mediacode with dvd identifier.

At what speed did you burn these discs?

I’ave tried to use the original disc and the was still a problem.

On DVD Identifier I got the following:

First check the drive info in devicemanager and enable DMA mode.

I’ve entered to the device manager and set all my IDE ATA/ATAPID controllers to “DMS if avaliable”, and it continues to jump…

DMA… and that is not enough. Check what DMA mode it is on.

Also run dxdiag from the commandprompt.

What do u mean when u write “Check what DMA mode it is on”?

And how can dxdiag can help me?

What you should check is not if DMA is [B]selected[/B], but if it’s actually [B]enabled[/B], i.e what is showed in the red squares (see the pic). It can happen that DMA is “selected” but not actually “enabled”.

Try BlazeDVD , it supports all audio which in my books, is a good thing. Supports all output formats. The support is sitting on basic for me but the good thing is, it has live chat. It has an ok skin, nothing too gross to look at. Supports XP, 2000, 98 and ME. Also, the product isn’t too pricy which is another good thing.

The latest BlazeDVD Pro is really crap, it just were tested in the latest c’t magazine…
