So I've had my Z70VA for about half a year now, and have never had any problems with my DVD's/CD's playing. Recently, however, the DVD player has begun stuttering during playback (the audio stuttering is more noticeable than video) and it never lets up. I've tried multiple programs (ASUSDVD, Windows Media) and they all have the same problem. For what it's worth, the drive also seems to make rather unnerving grinding-like sounds when a disc is in it and running. Audio CD's freeze up the entire computer when i try to play them (autoplay or manual load), and then an error message appears saying the drive cannot read the format. I have not yet tried reinstalling the drivers, but I fear there may be a problem with the hardware itself. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
