The Dvd player Skips when I watch a movie or listen to music. I even tried a neqw dvd player and it does the same thing. The movie and cd works fine in my other computer so I know its not that. Also I looked in the advanced settings And it is set as DMA mode. Thank you.

If movie or music playback is choppy or skips on your computer, it might be due to the system being "stressed". Please post the specs on the computer having the problems.

Peace...

Are you running Windows or Linux on the system? How much RAM is in use when you play a movie or a CD?

What software do you use for movie viewing and music listening?

I just found this article which states the following:
* Turning on error correction might cause the CD audio to skip in places.
That appears about the middle of the page.

Check to see if you have Error Correction enabled and disable it and see what happens. Try this with CD playback. The article has info on how to check the Error Correction setting.

Peace...
