    Angry DVD Playback Problems!

    I posted this in the Newbie Forum at first, didn't get much help there so I thought I might try in here =)

    This problem is really getting on my nerves. If you have any suggestion of what I could try please don't hesitate to post it. I'll try anything.

    I have tryied with frodoplayer and PowerDVD.

    Both give me the same "lagging" effect. I hope you understand what i meen.
    (The DVD doesn't run smoothly)

    The system:

    Epia M10000
    512mb RAM
    40gig Hitachi 2,5" 5400RPM
    Sony CDRW/DVD combo

    I have tryied with both DMA enbled and disabled on the DVD player.

    It would be very helpfull with any tips on what the problem might be.

    Thanks, Kalle

    when i first started i bought a screen but it wasn't a tft screen. i learned the hard way. the video looked slow during some faster movement. maybe this is your problem?

    I have a Lilliput TFT just like most others, so that shouldn't be the problem. The first couple of seconds it runs smooth then it starts. I'm having a hard time to explain this in English. Just can't find the right word. But it looks just like you try to play a 3D game that your computer isn't fast enought to handle. It doesn't run smoothly. You see frame by frame etc.

    1) Install the latest drivers for all the components of the M10000.

    2) Try to put the DVD and the hard drive in master mode each at a different IDE channel. (Not together as master/slave that is ).

    3) Enable DMA.

    4) Enable hardware acceleration on PowerDVD settings.

    5) Uninstall any other DVD decoder except CyberLink's one (PowerDVD). It is the only one known of utilising the DXVA acceleration of the CLE266 chipset.

    6) Unload any CPU hungry app that is running in the background (Norton AntiVirus for example).

    Can't think of anything else. Hope this helps.

    I've tested everything you suggested exceept no 1. Can't find any newer drivers on Vias site then the ones that came with the board. I'm starting to think it could be something with the vga card. I tested with the visualization option in winamp. (the one that makes effect in movement with the beet of the music) This give me exact same effect as when I try to fire up a DVD movie. It just doesn't run smoothly. This is eating me up. I was supposed to install it in the car this weekend but this problem is messing with my plans. I've got everything else to work.

    Any other ideas? =)

    Kind Regards Kalle

    It sounds like your computer is'nt fast enough to encode the dvd, but I've got the same motherboard, and also 512 mb of ram, and I'm not having any problems at all (runnig WinDVD at the moment, but don't think that matters).

    Absolutely sure you got the drivers right?

    are you using the onboard video or did you add a video card? also do you have a diffrent dvd drive that you can just try maybe there is just a problem with the drive.

    I'm not sure about the drivers at all. Could you please paste a link if you got one to where I can download the newest drivers? I checked on viamainboards.com and the drivers there was the same as the ones that was shipped with the board.

    I don't have a other DVD drive, But I guess I'll be talking the system apart tomorrow and try the driver against my desktop computer.

    Here's the drivers.

    I guess its the drivers, or something like that, since you got the same problem with winamp visualisations.

    It sounds rather strange thou
