This is a relatively new problem, but I do not believe that anything has been installed to cause it, that I'm aware of.
Now, when I play DVD's on my computer, the sound skips, or is jumpy, although I think it's because of the playback, not the sound. It seems like it want's to play the DVD to fast. This does not happen when I play movies that have been burned onto a CD-R disk. And it's not movie specific, movies that used to play fine are now having problems.
Could it be that the drive needs to be physically cleaned? I've never had this problem before, but it seems to have occured after I burned a lot of disks.
It's a Window's XP system, HP Computer, with a RW 16x10/DVD
It wouldn't hurt to clean the lens, there are some good lens cleaners out there. I've one that has tiny brushes on it that works well. Also invest in a good cd disk cleaner. And make sure the disks are clean before you use them.
