    The DVD drive I have is an LG GSA-H22L.
    It has a DVD read of 16x. The problem I'm having is that when I use it to watch movies the playback is kind of jerky or rough. The sound and video skips, and at some points it's all just moves in slow motion. I'm not sure why.
    With my old DVD-ROM (a much older drive in a much older computer) the DVD playback was perfectly smooth. So I'm kind of confused as to why, when I'm using a newer drive in a better computer, with newer software (the PowerDVD 6.0 that came bundled with the drive) the playback is worse.

    If anyone knows anything that could help, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Okay, I tried playing a video on my old DVD-ROM drive, and it worked fine.
    So, I guess that mean's it's my DVD drive that's the problem . . .
    Is there an way that I canchange configurations or anything along those lines to improve the DVD playback?
