Hello,I'm wondering how to fix my computers cd/dvd drive. When ever i put a DVD in it is all stuttery and doesn't really work. I know its the dvd drive and not the dvd because I have tried several different dvd's. What it does, it plays for a few minutes then it like pauses for a second, then plays for a second, then pauses for a second, etc.
Does the drive seem to be spinning as fast as before? It sounds like it is running at a lower transfer rate for whatever reason. One solution might be to copy the contents of the dvd to the hdd prior to watching. Another possibility is that your DVD drive is fine and some process is hogging your computer's resources. Has the rest of the computer been slow lately? When you look at the task manager is the cpu maxed out?
