Default Having Trouble Getting new DVDRW drive to work...

This actually is more of a software issue, but nonetheless, I'll post it.

I recently built a new puter and havne't until tonight gotten around to really testing out the DVD drive.

I popped in Bad Boys II, Pirates of the Carribean, and then King Kong, and all three had the same problems.

WHen I played them in WIndows Media PLayer, some no-name free player from Download.com, and in that built-in player that comes bundled with most DVDs they all exhibited the same trait -

massive verticle lines/relics. There are about 25 - 30 blurry vertical lines that go through the picture. Further, the picture is blurrier than anything I've ever seen on a computer.

My monitor is a 20.1inch Acer Widescreen running 1600x1000 resolution.

What's teh problem??!!

THanks guys!

AMD 3800+ X2
2GB PC3200 ABIT ram
250GB WD Caviar SATA 300
XFX Geforce 6800xt
Acer 20.1 inch Widescreen LCD

first thing, have you installed the latest graphics drivers for your 6800?
try downloading and installing the k-lite codec pack
