bad dvd playback

i get horrible dvd playback on my system:900mhz w/ geforce ddr on detonator3 and 256mb of ram, and i know i shouldn't be cuz my older 500 mhz could play movies just fine. I get a lot of random slowdowns, as if the drive was reading ahead, and the movie just pauses for a few seconds. Then while fastforwarding, the picture doesn't update, but the movie is indeed fastforwarding. Slowdowns also happen if a quick movement happens onscreen. I use compaq dvd player (which now gives me protection errors), Intervideo WinDVD and Leadtek Winfast DVD. Any suggestions wouldl be appreciated.

Is the dma for the drive switched on? Also ALthough I'm not sure if it applies to the pograms you mentioned but in the case of powerDVD it supports geforce 2 hardware acceleration. If these supprt it check that they are switched on.
as betamax said its some settings at the software you'r using
and there is one more thing , check if the hard disk and your dvd player is connected to the same data cable
if they are try to put each alone .
