Answers :

Optical drives read from the inside of the disk to the outside,when it grinds to a hault,open the drive and take note where the laser pod is located,it slides along a rail as it reads the cd. does it always stop in the same spot?a small crumb of something is enough to jamm it up if in the right spot,blow it out with compressed air,then use your finger and slide the laser gently along the rail,it should have slight resistance,but it should move in and out smoothly from end to end,if it stops along the path or you hear grinding stop,something is stuck inside,or a tooth broke off one of the plastic gears,if thats the case pull it apart and take a look,small phyllips screwdriver should be all you need, as far as the software goes,im not too familiar with cyberlink,if it has drive speed tools you ned to run them so it can learn your drives capeabilities,if it doesnt get rid of it,and get nero 8 or 9,i wouldn't use anything else , one of the best burning softwares on the planet,good luck,let me know what you find

There is not a problem when watching DVD's so the graphic card on the PC appears to be OK. I have checked the settings in control panel and they seem to be OK. Any ideas? Steve
