(This may be a software issue but...) Just got a dell inspiron 1501, AMD Turion64. Quite fast and stays cool. Never checked the dvd burner, then finally trying to play a dvd, got stutter in the sound and video. Played movies stored on the hard drive no problem, several movies could run at once with no problems. Calling dell gave no help and the only thing that solved it was system restore. Trying to narrow it down now, but as i've downloaded new software i've been checking dvds (both dvd-r and actual store bought dvds). Windows Media 11 seemed fine, nero 7.0.7 seemed to be fine and then as soon as i installed adobe premiere pro 2.0 i got the same issue. Any idea if this is the problem? Or why? Are there other versions that wouldn't cause such issues or items i could leave from the install. i'll have to wipe the computer again once i back everything up, but then i'll check adobe to see if that's the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
