Default DVD Rom Skipping

New computer system. Windows Xp Pro.

DVD Rom is skipping a lot during DVD play back.

Changed DVD playing software around between WinDVD and PowerDVD

Changed DVD on the IDE channel

Changed DVD Disk

Problem is still there.

DVD Rom Drive was working perfectly in older computer system.
Suggestions ?

Did you possibly mishandle it or not ground yourself before handling it?It dosnt sound like a software prob.If you can,put it in another pc and see if that cures it.

Now that I have the problem in front of me (as appose to over the phone), i have managed to fix it.

The DVD ROM was playing up.

The strange thing about the DVD rom is that it worked perfectly in the older machine. But in the new one, that is when it was playing up.

On to worry, it's fix now.

The drive is misaligned i would bet 95% of the time.

You can search google on how to align CD drives, it is the same for any DVD style drive I have opened.

Know the limits, as alingment affects the power of the laser, and over alingment will cause premature wear on the laser.

Stuff that.... It's simple enough for me just to RMA the bugger.
