My Brand new Sony DDU1612 drive isn't working properly, I use it to Watch movies and Back-up my DVD Library with my DVD Burner (MicroAdvantage)...
I am having a problem watching movies on it, but it can read the DVD's fine when it is backing up...
My system is plenty fast, 3ghz P4 1gig Ram...
I am using Power DVD to watch my movies, they start out fine, but then start getting choppy to the point where the images become a slide show not a steady movie, and the audio doesn't match the screen... I have tried different players, including Xvid and Media Player Classic to play my DVD and it still shows up choppy... So I have been watching my DVD's from my DVD Burner which is a Micro Advantage 4DVDRW-B13 it Reads DVD's at 12x while the Sony DVD drive Reads at 16x, BUT the microadvantage drive DOESN'T Skip or get choppy at any point in the movie.
Sony's Site has nothing as far as support or drivers.
Any suggestions ?
BTW - Initialy there was a problem with the DMA settings for the drive in W2k that I corrected, see :
And now the test software analysis software I am using from "www.cdspeed2000.com
" says the drive is working fine and it is READING at Awsome speeds, but why isn't it playing my movies Smoothly?
