    Hi Guys, im having a bit of a problem with my dvd player on my laptop. the laptop is a Dell XPS M170 running XP pro and the dvd player is an HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-T21N. the original died a few weeks ago and i got a replacement part under warranty. the problem is that now i can not watch films. i get about a second or two then it will pause for a second or two. I have updated the firmware and drivers, i have also turned the hardware acceleration on and off. this playback problem occurs in both VLC and Windows Media Player which both worked with my previous drive. its starting to bug me now and any ideas would be great although i am starting to think that perhaps it is a faulty drive and i should get a new replacement??
