Question

Hi:

 

I am trying to play a commercial movie DVD which plays just fine in my DVD player, but in the computer the video is fine, but the audio is very choppy. I tried using Windows Media player and have the same problem.

 

I downlodaded and installed Creator 2009 service pack 2, but see no difference.

 

Computer is:

 

Dell Inspiron 640m

Windows XP SP 3

Intel CPU T2500@2 GHz.

2 GB RAM

Video: Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family

Sony DVD +-RW DW-Q58A

 

Thanks for your help, :)

Then you have a hardware problem, not a software problem. You must have a laptop, because you have a video chip. Have you updated the drivers for it?

 

What sound card, or chip, do you have? Have you updated the drivers for it?

Probably the cause of the problem =- it's down among the bottom end of graphics

Might it be the combination of hardware and software? Because this laptop came with a basic version of Cineplayer (Dell logo included), which ran just fine; I have the problem since I substituted the original Cineplayer with Creator 2009.

 

:unsure:

 

If that were the case, is it possible to uninstall Cineplayer 5, reinstall my original Cineplayer but keeping the rest of the applications of Creator 2009?

 

Thanks again for the help

Yes, I have both a 945 chipset and a Sigma Tel audio card.

 

Thanks for any help :)

 

I didn't think there was such a thing as a SigmaTel audio card. They make chipsets and drivers. Try updating the drivers for your audio device or install an inexpensive audio card (if that is not a laptop).

 

What OS are you running?

 

I posted a mistake above; the bit rate issue is with M-Audio cards.

Well, I'm not sure it is actually an audio card, since we are talking a Dell laptop, but it sure is a Sigma Tel audio device.

 

I have downloaded the latest drivers from the Dell website, but to no avail.

 

I'm running Windows XP SP 3.

 

Thanks again
