DVD drive playing slowly

Hi all,

I'm using an Acer Aspire with Windows XP and suddenly my DVD drive plays at half speed. It seems to be the same with audio CDs as with DVDs, and it obviously makes most multimedia impossible to use.

Any ideas?

    could be your system cutting down on memory use? in that case close any other open programmes.
    some players you can set to play at half speed / twice speed - so check your settings.
    i take it from what you say that its more than 1 disc, otherwise i'd say clean the disc :)
