Windows 7: DVD playback freezes

DVD freezes - Samsung Laptop

Hi - Sorry I am going to be no help at all because I found my problems stemmed from a faulty DVD drive - which I have now replaced and have no problems. I use media centre to play dvds with no problems at all. I have just formatted and reloaded my laptop - made no additions or tweaks and all is fine as is.

This posting is just to bring you up to speed with my problem and resolution.

Thanks all for the help you gave anyway.

kind regards

win 7 U 32bit

Same issue here .More buffering than actually stopping.

Only occurs with a avi home movie burnt to -R DVD. Same on 2 new lap tops Win 7 and same on my PC dual boot under Win 7 but normal under Win XP.

Commercial DVD movies play fine under Win 7 on all 3 machines.

The AVI format on -R seems to be the problem.

Perhaps converting to another format might fix this issue or MS requires to patch ?

Still looking for a solution. Any help would be well received.
