    Does it do the same thing if you are watching a movie from your Hard Drive? (Are you sure that the discs and the lens are clean? You might be surprised...) Are you running lots of other programs in your system tray?

DRIVERS MAY NOT BE LOADING RIGHT, COMPRESSION FORMAT IS INCORRECT, CD ROM OR DVD PLAY IS DIRTY AND NEEDS TO BE CLEANED, AND YES THE LIGHT THAT READ THE FORMAT NEED CLEANING TOO BESIDES THE DRIVER LENS ALSO, CLEAN THE DVD OR CD -RM WITH WATER AND NON LINT RAG. SAME CLOTH YOU USE FOR WAXING YOUR CAR, AND I MEAN ONE YOU HAVENT WAXED YOUR CAR WITH TODAY, A BRAND NEW ONE THAT HAS JUST COME OUT OF THE PLASTIC BAG.

How do I get my laptop to play dvds again it won t work


When you say play DVDs you mean watch DVD movies? Assuming the drive is not broken you need to use the DVD app. You could use VLC Player which you can download. It's an orange traffic cone icon.

Acer has jerky video


The video is jerky because the rate at which the video stream is being received on the internet is not keeping up with the rate at which the video is being played on the screen by the video player application that you are using. The video player has an incoming video stream buffer and if the amount of video data in it falls below a minimum amount, the player will pause until the incoming stream refills it to some point above the minimum amount. Most video players will have a pause button and clicking it will manually pause the video player so allowing its buffer (or cache) to fill until you click its play button again. The player will have an indicator of how much of the video content has been downloaded into the buffer and if you pause until all the content has been downloaded, clicking play at this point results in a play of the video that will not be jerky.

How to play Blu-ray movie on 5536G?


Arcade Deluxe is nothing more than a **** media center with a useless media player in it - get rid of it. If you want to play BR disks there are 2 options: either install a good codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5748&s=775 an use WMP or install and use VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

No volume with dvd on acer arcade or windows


If there are no hardware issues most probably the following are the reasons:
1. Check whether the Media Player sound is not muted. 2. Check whether the systems sound is not muted. 3. If you encounter sound problems only with dvds most probably there is no driver issue, but there can be a codec issue, install the latest version of media player and if possible install a better dvd player software. Google AVS DVD player a freeware.

Movie buffering


movie buffering is normal for internet movie players,most are fast acting and powerful too.buffer to 100% then they will stream well.
More RAM will help the functions along faster but the softwares drive the devices output signals thru to the media side,
Update the devices drivers too
You problem may be the software or the file format of the movie
ie CD,DVD,AVI,DIVX,XVID.....and so on

There are lots of formats for media available so check the machines player type,Windows Media Player or Arcade

also the type of disk format will effect to out come too,
ie,wrong disk no work

Hope this helps ,Cheers Misterdj
