[QUOTE=jamescooley1;2186498]What type of media are you using and burn speed? No click and no choppy video correct? I would refrain from running anything while watching the video unless your computer is the multi core processor type.[/QUOTE]
Hi, thanks for your reply!
I’m playing retail movie DVD’s, not burns. I should have mentioned that, sorry.
Before it was choppy even when I’m not clicking things in windows, but after updating the drivers for the SATA controller, and updating the firmware on the DVD drive itself, now there is only choppy playback when I click around, yes.
I’m running a Quad Core i7 920 CPU with 6GB of ram. I just built the system two days ago. My previous system was a old dell P4, but it seemed like it had better dvd playback.
Is this dilemma normal? (smooth playback, but choppy if clicking in windows) I really don’t remember this happening on my old IDE burner in my P4 dell system. The DVD playback on that drive has stopped working months ago, so unfortunately I can’t do an A/B comparison. Perhaps this is just something particular to SATA burners?
Anyone else reading, feel free to drop in your thoughts on this!
