Hi there everyone, I’ve being trying to solve the problem with playing back DVDs on my Vaio notebook. Sony VGN-SZ670N/C The player: Matshita DVD-RAM UJ852S ATA DEVICE Here is the thing: the image keeps freezing, the vocals don’t match the scene and it sounds like a scratched old record. The DVD recorded on the notebook sounds even worst. When I play the same DVD on a different player or machine it sounds just fine. I tried with different programs like: Sony cine player, WinDVD, Windows Media player and none of them worked. Tried to fix uninstalling and updating the Click to DVD, uninstalling the player’s driver and recover it from system and didn’t help. Just don’t know what else to do.

VLC is an open source media player. It will play cd's and dvd's and it will play videos that Windows Media Player has a problem with. VLC comes with drivers and codec and i've seen it solve issues with audio and sound that Windows Media Player had a problem with.
There could be several things which are causing your CD burner not to act in the way it should.
I had a similar type problem after installing Windows XP, .Service Pack 3 onto my Sony VAIO model VGN-SZ330P. The standard Windows burner kept saying there was no CD in the drive but it would play both CDs and DVDs.
I went looking for an alternative and now use IMGBURN which is a free lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application . You can find it at http://www.imgburn.com/.
I also installed CDBurnerXP which is another free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. You can find it at http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home
The above does not tell you why your burner is having problems (and they could be numerous), it will certainly get the burner doing everything you need.
Even the most basic pc should be able to play DVD's, firstly try a different dvd player sofware, see if any change and don't have any programmes running in the background.
If you still have the same problen, i would return to your retailer and ask for a exchange, because some companies do not like you messing with the hardware or settings, and of course can void your warranty.
