Hey i was watching a dvd video today and noticed that it was choppy/ skipping all the time it also happened when i downloaded the gta iv trailer it was very choppy.But it isnt on youtube.
can any one help

Probably it is a bad burned media. What discs are you using? What burner do you have? What firmware is installed? At what speed did you burn?

i wasnt burning i was just watching but it stopped when i watched friday after next. where can i get firmware for my dvd burner it is a benq not sure what model etc. its black and has lightscribe!!

To get a firmware you need first to know exactly what model you have.

You can use cd-dvd speed or also nero infotool to retrieve these information (see link in my signature).
