DVD running "Choppy"

By colsue ·
After re-installing windows XP my Toshiba DVD Rom drive runs "choppy". It worked fine before the re-installation. An audio cd plays with no problems in the drive. Any ideas ?

DVD running "Choppy"

by dave.osborne In reply to DVD running "Choppy"

A few things ...

Did you let win XP install the drivers before, or did you use drivers from Toshiba? (check for updated drivers)

Did you reinstall of the win XP updates from Microsoft? (check for compatibility updates)

Did you make any changes with hardware during the reinstall process? (another HD, CD/DVD, video, sound, etc)

Was the software that you used to play DVDs reinstalled? Is there an upgrade for it? (does it have another XP version)

I had a problem with my Toshiba DVD (SD-M1212) ... after updating to XP SP 1 ... went to winupdate and downloaded a few more compatibility updates ... worked fine then.

Hope this helps.

What about your MB IDE drivers and/or BIOS ... all compatible with win XP and all up to date?

There is a DVD player update from Toshiba that can be downloaded from their website. It is supposed to fix this problem. It can be downloaded via Toshiba's automated update software.
