probably dma isn't enabled for the dvd drive
you can look at the current settings for a drive with.
hdparm /dev/hdc
or hdd. it just depends.

if /dev/hdc
hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc

I apreciate the assistance, after stumbling around with different settings i realized SuSE had setup my internal dvd player to non dma like you stated. Got is setup and now i can play my dvd's fine no skips at all.

Great for those Futurama and Family Guy boxed sets i picked up yesterday : D
