    If applicable,
    Install any updates required for WinDVD.
    Configure your system so that the DVD drive is jumpered as Master and see if that helps any.

    Speaking of WinDVD updates, there's a 2.8.22.1 patch at InterVideo's Taiwan FTP site, which isn't available on the US site. Might be worth a shot.

    What version of WinDVD have you got, I've never had any problems before. Are the settings ok? Try disabling some of the Hardware features in the Video options.
