AnthonyP Posted March 3, 2009 Report Share Posted March 3, 2009 A few weeks ago, after downloading some .avi videos from internet, I started having problems with DVD video playback using WPV/WMA player, Dell Media centre on my 2-year old Dell Inspiron Laptop. I am able to transfer any video/audio file from the DVD disc on to the hard drive and then play it without a problem. I am able to burn an audio CD; I am able to burn a video on a CD-RW (using WMP) or DVD-RW disc. They will play well on my external DVD/CD player but when played back on the computer via a DVD-ROM drive both the video and audio are choppy. Making a disc copy from -RW onto -R is sometimes successful. I have tried reinstalling My DVD LE (version 6.1.6, uses CLImage VSD.ax, version 220.127.116.115) software by Roxio, updating drivers, etc. but to no avail. It rather made it worse even in Media Direct which sort of was OK. All components seem to be working properly when checked using troubleshooting routines. When starting the DVD burn process I get a message that the DMA for one of the recording devices is not enabled. However, I am not able to turn it on by following the suggested steps. I suspect the problem is the DVD decoder? Thanks for any suggestion. AnthonyP Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
