DVD rom - choppy playback


I have a pioneer DVD-106S. I am using Cyberlink powerDVD, WinDVD, and windows media. For each one, it would have the same choppy playback, from the beginning. I'm using winxp pro, which has enabled DMA automatically at Ultra DMA 4. I have it as the only drive. I've tried changing it to PIO and back to DMA but to no avail. What else can I do?

I know this going to sound stupid, but try removing your audio drivers(or disabling them) temporarily. Most DVD playback problems are either DMA or driver related. Most people switch from PIO to DMA in device manager and even update thier video drivers, but with DVD the audio can have a major effect. If the audio drivers are the culprit, try downloading different version until you find one that is satifactory...

This is what happened to someone I know. The same exact situation. Depending on the drive you can change the speed manually of the dvd drive by hitting fast foward on it. Check out the manual and it should say. His DVD drive was playing at 2x when it should have been 12x. This should work.

which dvd program was he using? I'll check the fast forward option on the program when I get home. but if the dvd is 16x, shouldn't by default run at 16x?

I tried to install this drive to a different computer and it worked. I looked at the hardware profile, it was showing multiword DMA Mode 2. So I went back to the other computer and reinstalled the drive. Looked at the properties, it was showing Ultra DMA mode 4. and it was still playing choppy. could this be the problem and how can I solve it. is there a way to manually add in multiword DMA mode 2?

Try changing the mode in your BIOS, in the Integrated Peripherals section.

in the bios, it only had enabled and disabled. you can't choose different DMA modes. I flashed new bios, but still had the same problem. My mobo is an abit TH7-II non raid, with th7hbw bios. As a note, on my other pc, I have the same mobo, and it still works, but not on this particular pc.

strangly enough my dvd player just started doing the same thing. sound and video are both choppy but not like it's slowing down. seems like it's randomly fast forwarding then slowing down to reg speed again.

didn't work. I tried fast forwarding and backward but still did not work. I'm out of ideas.
