  • Dvd drives in car

    When going over bumps to dvd drives skip? would getting a stot loaded dvd drive solve this? Thanks in advance.

    I have a DVD-ROM mounted vertically and I have never had a skip. Mine is not a slot load, but the disk will stay in the tray when vertical. Hope this helps.

      Mine has never skipped. Even had dvd playing while testing system in 1/4mile race. I even went through washington D.C doing atleast 80mph and it worked fine.

        Correct me if I am wrong here, but constant speed should not affect a DVD or CD player. Accellerating through the 1/4 mile could cause skipping, but constant 80MPH won't as long as the road is even close to reasonable shape.

          I was trying to play dvds from the HD. I actually got it copied to the HD but would not play for some reason. Anyway, you would need a decent sound card to do the all the channels if you are into the surround thing with PC DVD drives.

          I'm adding a real dvd that goes with my HU and it has the 5.1 whatever sound to go along with all the channels including the center one.

            There is an alternative to putting a DVD drive in your car...
