My acer aspire 5050 has been finding it difficult to play DVDs since about 2 weeks ago. I noticed when watching videos off a DVD in media player there was a great amount of slowdown.
I have found DMA to be enabled, so this isn't the issue. I have reinstalled drivers and found this didn't have any effect. I have also done a system scan and defrag with no show of improvement.
I have used nero diskspeed and found that the speed of my player is at max 3.75x which would consider below normal. could someone maybe get to grips with what the issue might be?
Thanks folks, would really appretiate your input
