When did this start? What are you using for virus/spyware protection? When was Windows loaded on this machine? What other problems? Do you do disk cleanups and defraging? What files are you having problems with - audio CD's, or what? More details about the hardware would be helpful.

windows  was  loaded  sometime  during 2003  i  have  recieved  all  the updates, i  went  to  the  web-site  and  it  said  there  were  no  avaliable  updates  at  this  time,  i  don.t  have  problems  with  no  other  files,  the  cdr/dvd/rw works  fine  when  you  are  burning  cd,s  no  problems, it  is just  when  you start  playing  them  back  on  this  pc  you  get  that  skippinng, start/ stop. breaking  up  type  of  playback,  but  that  is  not  recorded  in  the  cd  or  dvd  you  are  burning,  when  i  take  the  cd  or  dvd  that  i  recently  burned  and  put  it  on  my  cd-  player  there  is  no  skipping,  or start/ stopping  as  i  am  typing  this  reply  i  am  getting  a  1-second  delay  in  the  letters  appearing  on  the  screen.

When you reloaded Windows after replacing the drive did you load the drivers from the Dell site (updated) or off the Drivers CD?

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/devices.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&SystemID=LAT_PNT_P3C_C610&os=WW1&osl=EN#

If you are using XP.

I would try a reinstall of the audio drivers. Also, check for running processes in Device manager and also use the online scanner at www.trendmicro.com
