Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

If the problem is with rented DVDs, and not purchased ones, it’s probably due to the condition of the rentals. I’m guessing they play fine on a standalone (standalones play at a slower speed than PC drives).

All I can suggest is giving the rental DVDs a clean, I have a “Disc Doctor” thing that does the trick on borrowed discs that haven’t been kept very well.

Some of these rental movies either they are scratched or corrupted, you may want to clean the disc (rental movie (very good and then replay it that may work also.
