Today when I play an audio cd in the cd deck with windows media it plays about 3 min and starts getting a skipping like file interruption. So I tried it on VLC and it does the same thing in the same amount of time. It also freezes the players up so you can't skip to the next track. I've tried everything i know of which isn't much but I did all the standard diagnostics and checking driver updates. Says everything is fine. HELP!!

could be a failing laser or dirty laser lens on the drive itself.

 

try cleaning it and see if your issue goes away.

Thanks man. Didn't even know you can clean a drive without wiping it clean. Probably going to get a new puter but really needed this one to last till the end of the month. Puter is working fine everywhere else that's why it's driving me nuts. That and I'm puter ignorant on tough stuff. learned a lot over the years but still ignorant when you get to problems like this. Rather have the puter not working but the music playing. Thank gawd for youtube. Thanks again.

Huhhhhhh, You didn't say they ALL were having a problem, you said just that one was. Next time, try the plural sense.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

It's highly likely that it's the drive itself, skipping is a common symptom of a weak laser or dirty laser lens as already mentioned. Unless the drive is a laptop style where the laser assembly slides out with the drawer, the easiest way to clean the lens is with a lens cleaning disc. They can't do a 100% job, but if the problem is dust on the lens, it can be good enough.
