Default DVD playback problem ... HELP !

Computer DVD playback problem ... HELP !

Cyrix VIA 1GigaPro (600 mHz)
256mb SDRAM PC133 (Crucial)
Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 8 HD 40GB
Asus 7100 series 64mb (SDR) 4X AGP Video Card
Creative SB Live!
Sony CRX320E CD-RW DVD combo drive
MSIDVD 5.1 (is actually PowerDVD 5.0)

I've tried everything I could think of (swapped DVD drives, re-installed Win98, chercked all Bios settings/jumpers, DMA in Device Manager, etc) but DVD playback is still choppy. I noticed that the DVD drive is not writing to the HD during playback (called write-ahead?) but it does write ahead in my other puter (Asus PII400 system). Is it the ECS MoBo causing this or can some setting in Bios or other fix be made. Please advise.

Also, what used MoBo do you recommend for a PIII 866 133mhz FC-PGA flip-chip cpu? Thanks
