[quote=mciahel;2023195]Hi and Welcome!Seems as if there is a problem with that piece of software. Not drive related at all.
Get VLC from www.videolan.org This is a free application that should allow you to play your videos.
W2kSP4 has still MSIE5.0. You should really update to latest IE6 since there are many security fixes that need to be installed. And also don’t forget to diwnload and install the Update Rollup from MS.
No. The Newbie forum is a good place to start with.
Thanks for advice.I installed the player as sugested and this solved my problem…almost.
Video now plays with sound but it is jumpy.audio and video stop every few seconds for about half a second. it sounds like a scratched record.
I fiddled player settings but nothing made any diffs.
Task manager indicates that cpu is running at 30 to 43% usage with no other aps open.
the machine has a “new” 512meg ram.
Any help please?
