I am testing with two computers a new LITEON DVD ROM RW to replace an old one.
Using Power DVD software in both computers.
In computer A, the DVD player works fine. No issues at all.
In computer B, the player will be lucky to play a DVD for a few minutes then it will start to stutter and freeze before it just locks up the computer.
Both computers were newly built 18 months ago with AMD Athlon XP 3200 CPUs, Asus MB, 1gig Crucial RAM, Antec PS, Gforce6800 (compA) GforceTI4200 (comp B)
The old DVD player worked fine in the computer (3-4 year old Sony)
Where should I look next? What info am I not giving you?
