Windows 7: Media Center stop playback randomly

Media Center stop playback randomly

I am having some problems with media center. I have ripped my dvd to my harddrive (eSata) and uses My Movies to see the dvd's inside Media Center. But when I play the dvd's playback stops randomly and I need to re-start playback manually.

VLC Player has no problem playing these files - only Media Center that is acting up?

AHCI is activated.

Can't locate PhysX setting in Nvidia settings, so I guess it is not enabled for my GPU.

Does anyone have a solution for this?

some technical info about my computer:
Intel Atom 330Processor
Intel ION
4GB SDRAM
320GB System Harddrive
1TB eSata Data Drive (DVD's are locatad here)
nVidia Geforce 9400

sdjensen, I am not sure your small form factor device has enough muster to run video in WMC. That being said, download and install the latest nVidia drivers from nVidia to get the nVidia Control Panel. Atom processors are for very basic devices that are intended for email/web surfing/basic doc editing. If you have just one video adaptor Physx should be disabled.

I don't see why it should not be able to run a vidio in WMC since VLC player has no problem doing this. I have the latest nVidia driver for the ION.

I have an updated version of the ASUS REVO with a duel core chip.

I have done some research and it seem that the problem only exists, when I have subtitles enabled - if I disable subtitles everything is fine.

Intel Atom N230 is a single core 1.6GHz chip (512kb L2 cache, 533MHz FSB)
Intel Atom N330 is a duel core 1.6GHz chip (1MB L2 cache, 533 MHz FSB, 64bit support)

and I bought a version with the n330 chip.

But I still no believe this is a hardware problem for 2 reasons. There is not problem when subtitles is disabled and VLC player have no problem with playing the same movies.

I am not sure what the winqual help is for - but yes, I can find the nVidia ION on it.

I would like to post the WEI if I knew what it was. Please elaborate.
