    I understand what your saying but im not really 100% sure how to go about doing what you've said. I also tried looking for the drivers to update them but cannot find them anywhere for the drive.

    if you are using power DVD
     
    See if in the options/advanced options of PowerDVD if there are any checkboxes for hardware video or audio acceleration. These can make the difference between smooth playback or stuttering/glitching audio.

    I'd also make sure your video drivers are current, AGP is working properly (if an AGP video card) and you have the latest video drivers. In most cases, stuttering sound is due to the inability to sync audio since there isn't enough CPU resources to do this after video decode. If you can somehow reduce CPU load, this will usually clean-up audio problems.

    Low memory conditions, trojans, spyware or incorrectly configured/too many systray applications can also do this. I'd try disabling any extra systray tools/utilities and messengers as well to make sure these aren't messing up dvd playback. The Task Manager should also be helpful for sorting by CPU utilization to see what might be taking up unnecessary CPU time, as well as inspecting how much available memory is free on your system prior to launching your DVD application.

    Shut off things you dont need during the playback of your DVD



    did you install any new programs from when it worked good to now?

Sound distortion in my 47


First of please ensure that the input device does not produce such distortion by connecting it to a different device. If that is ok, play different DVDs/CDs and see. If the problem still persists, try changing the graphic equalizer settings. If it does not work, this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

My DVD writer don't write dvds


you changed the dvd from one machine to the other? well, then you'll need to download drivers for that other computer, for the dvd that moved..this is a usual situation. Now, unless we know the computer make and operating system of the second computer, it's not simple to find the driver location(which is most likely on the computer makers website)
