Why does this Divx file skip only on my computer?

    My brother burned these Divx movies yesterday and I tried to watch them, but one of them would not play at all (part 1 of a movie, but part II did work) and for only about 10-15minutes of another movie 7/8 of the way through, it would constantly skip or just stop with some error that it couldn't read the disc.

    I cleaned the discs first-off, then gave to him to try on his computer, and they work fine. I downloaded Divx 5.05 and Nimo (which he has) and I'm still getting the same problems.

    So, is the question about codecs or may it have something to do with burning speed?

    Also, they were playing in WMP. I tried the Divx Player 2.1 too, but still didn't work.

    First things first. Computer info?
    My first guess is that you have a slow CD-rom. Try copying the divx files to your harddrive and try it that way.

    I can't even get to the file on most of them, though. If I just click on D, it doesn't respond.

    Most likely the cd is screwed up and the divx file didn't burn onto the cd correctly.
