    I am in a bit of a predicament.
    Both my dad, and my older sister have an HP laptop, and for some reason both of them cant playback ordinary dvd movies properly.

    There is a varying effect between the different movies but they all have the error in common.

    When the dvd's are played in either windows media player 11, or windows media center, the movie either cant be read, or has some serious stuttering issues for a while before the program crashes.

    What am i supposed to do?

    (One has vista, the other has win XP home SP3, but the problem is still the same)

    Burn it.




    or check your codecs. CCCP codec pack helped out a few systems i had that stuttered.

    Burn it? Its ordinary dvd movies.

    They both have k-lite codec pack, but that never posed a problem before.

    Some old powerdvd (forgot its name) which came bundled with the laptops. also works half and half. but that doesnt help the fact they wont work in media player or media center.
