dvd rom freezes

You dont mention whether you have a decoder ard installed or not or whether you are using a software decoder. If you have neither then I suspect that this may be your problem. Just having a DVD drive does not enable you to watch movies without a decoder. Either that or you are using ATIs DVD software which has been known to cause some major problems. If you are using a Software decoder to watch movies and you machine isn't "up to scratch" i.e at least a Athlon 500MHz with 128Meg of RAM thenyou will either have to shell out of a decoder card or upgrade your system.

Hope this helps and you are able to watch the movies.
Regards

check and see if your dvd drive is enabled for DMA (you can see this in your device manager under the cd-rom tap.
If its enabled disable it. if its disabled try enabling it
Seems to work for some
