I've got an AMD Duron and I have 512 MB RAM

I usually have around 30 - 35 processes running. I was forced to watch the rest of the movie on a TV... :(

That could have alot to do with it, too many processes or services running in the backgroung will sometimes cause that to happen. Also not having enough memory or updated codecs will cause that too.

you could try playing dvd's using realplayer as a media player or you can try free dvd software like :

or you could just shell out some $ and get a good player you know won't give you problems. one of my computer's came with Power Dvd :

That player is the best i have ever used so far...Hope that helps.
