    When I try to watch a DVD, it starts skipping. Checked the discs for scratches but they are fine. I didn't have problems in the past, it barely started doing it a few weeks ago. Any ideas??

    Are the DVD's commercial ones and does this happen with all the disks you play? If so, you could try a head-cleaning disk in case the lens in your drive is dirty.
    If they are disks which you burned yourself, how old are they? Some of mine from a couple of years back are showing the same problems.

    Rentals. But the thing is that it didn't do it in the past, why is it doing it now?

    Don't expect your optical drives to last as long as your hard drives or floppy drives unless your pals call you Lucky. :D
