Dear members of this board,
My PC has Windows XP and a 866 MHz processor. When I play a DVD, the playback is moving in a jolting manner. Does this have anything to do with my processor. Or does I have to extend the RAM? What is the minimum I need for an ecellent playback of a DVD?

Thanks in advance for Your assistance!

Best regards

George

Is the DVD scrathed? Try a new one and see if it has the same issue. Also try to update the dvd player software, could be a bug. Lastly it could be the video card is not able to handle it. What is your vid card?

there must be an application that opens to play the dvd. What program is that? There may be a patch or bug fix. Try going here and see if your program is in the list, or download the media center and see if that fixes it.
