    about 3 or 4 times a movie, the video will pause, sound continues for about 5 seconds, then pauses, then another 5 seconds later everything will do a "fast forward" bit and catch up to where it was. I was thinking this was a video card problem since I'm running a BIOSTAR 9400GT 1024MB DDR-2 DX10.0 GRAPHICS CARD CSVN9402THG1 Link to nvidia video card post where i was suggested to post here

    Anyways, I'm running XBMC Live off a 8gig thumb drive.

    It's difficult to get specs since My buddy built it and i don't exactly know what is in it, I suppose I could tear it open and write down all the numbers on the stickers. wasn't sure if this is common and someone had a simple answer.

    Flash drives have a lower transfer rate and higher read times than hard disks due to the lower bandwidth offered by USB, I believe it's something like that anyway. IDE shouldn't have an issue running this though.
