    This kind of issue could have several different causes. The easiest one to check and solve is a dirty lens. All you have to do to clean it is this: Open the drive. When it's all the way open, you should be able to see the lens. Apply some isopropyl alcohol to the end of a q-tip, and *GENTLY* clean the lens with a spinning/twisting motion of the q-tip. Don't push down too hard, and make sure that the q-tip is not soaking and dripping alcohol on the other parts of the drive. After cleaning the lens, use the dry end of the cotton swab to swab the lens...GENTLY. When you finish this, wait a couple of minutes for everything to dry, and try it out.
    If this doesn't work, I will help you find out how much RAM you have, and how much is being used, and how to free some up.
    (If this does work, please reply. I will post a "solution" later so you can rate how helpful I've been.)

    Thanks,
    Stephen

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

Is the movie a store purchased movie or is it a movie that someone copied and gave to you? Computers sometimes have problems reading or playing a dvd or cd that someone else made and gave to you. Try a store purchased music cd or store purchased movie dvd and see if the player plays it.

Maybe your internet speed is not capable of feeding the video images fast enough, or have you even thought that maybe 1000's of other people are trying to watch the same video
