    I have been using Anydvd and and Clone DVD2 for a long time now. I am updated to Anydvd and Clonve DVD I've had no problems until now. I can watch all movies in my dvd player as well as my portable dvd players but when I put them in my laptop they run fine for the first 30 minutes or so and then they start to freeze and jump and sometimes stop altogether. What am I doing wrong and can I fix this? Please help!

    Which DVD device (Make and model) is in your laptop?

    The drive in your laptop does not like your media. Drives in laptops are usually cheap OEM drives that are very picky. Might have to search the internet to see if any particular media type will work best.

    My bet would be it's a Matshita drive. They are not quality drives and are installed in many brands of Laptops.

    That identifies the laptop - not the DVD Drive. Download DVD Identifier and that will provide the specifics regarding the DVD unit.
