Default A70 playing movies

I'm shooting movies in 640X480 res. They look pretty good when I watch them.
Well I burnt a pile of video clips on to cd to keep. When I play the video
clips from the cd they are stopping and starting real jerky. If I copy the
clip from the cd to my desktop it plays fine. I have a yamaha 24x10x40
cdrom. Is it just the 40x read is too slow?thanks

Depends on how much cache you have available for the CD drive, the speed of the buss, etc. If you only have a small cache set, the computer can only load a little bit of the video at the time:

In Win9x
Control Panel - System - Performance tab - File System button - CD Rom tab - slide to large and drop down to Quad speed or higher.
