    dvd player skips
    Imac G5 DVD player skips.

    I have tried everything without success. I reinstalled OSX, performed a hardware check, I even put a new optical drive into the computer. Nothing helps.

    A Cd plays fine, but a DVD constantly skips. I can record onto a DVD and it plays fine on other devices. So I guess the write head works.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
