Playback of audio or data on the CD-ROM is uneven or jerky
Explanation: Your CD-ROM drive works but you have intermittent problems such as stuttering, jerky response, occasional pauses in playback, etc.
Diagnosis: One common cause of this problem is simply having a slow CD-ROM drive. Many drives that are 4X speed or below simply aren't fast enough to stream data from them to satisfy the more demanding software out there. Some drives produce somewhat pausy or erratic results because of the delay as they change speeds while seeking. Other problems have to do with configuration, or even a resource conflict.
