I recently purchased a LITEON DVD Writer with lightscribe off of Newegg.com
(Here Is My Drive). I burned 2 DVDs with it so far but for some reason DVD playback is slow and twitchy and the sound is as well. Can someone diagnose my problem?

Is it only when played back in that drive, or has it burned disks that play that way in all drives?

If it's just when playing in that drive, in Device Manager/Properties/Advanced Settings for the IDE channel the drive is on, does its Mode show as DMA if available, or PIO only? If it shows PIO, try changing to DMA mode and see if it is accepted and solves the problem.

It doesn't exactly say in the properties what IDE channel it's on, but all are set to DMA if available and playback still the same.

DVD playback is slow and twitchy


of the burned dvd's in what? your standalone player(dvd)? the computer drive? other people's players?

burning dvd's and making them compatible with players is a pretty hard thing to do, use great media, burn slower than max,
but nothing works with crappy players

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Playback is slow and twitchy on all dvds (even copywrited, I played one of my purchased ones) on my DVD drive. I used Windows media player and powerdvd. playback is fine on my home DVD player.

dvd playback is fairly system intensive

on older computers you have to have almost all the system resources free just to play a dvd

if your cpu is at least 1 Ghz and taskmanager shows 100 megs of ram free and you have 32 megs of video memory?

details????

As stated earlier pio mode will wreck most anything

what software relating to playing or burning has ever been installed on that computer?

besides what you have mentioned already

just because you haven't used something or have uninstalled it don't assume it's not an issue

list any/all programs that might be related

Several of those are safe, several I have never heard about and that's bad, run this clean up tool on the system bus(spti) and then try nero again after rebooting.

I don't want to waste too much of our time on this, it might be bad drive

http://www.bustrace.com/products/devfilter.htm

are your filter drivers clean as shown on this web page?

if so have you ever had other versions of nero installed, if they were then you need to run the nero clean tool and then reinstall nero

trying the drive in another computer with less issues might be a good idea

getting a good drive is a crapshoot today, quality control with any of them doesn't seem to exist?

I think I'm just going to send it back.

I don't really have time.

Thanks you very much for your help Chewy.

I don't want to waist any of your time either.
