DVDIdle v5.9.8.5

Shareware
Win2k / Win98 / WinME / WinXP
DVDIdle extends the life-time of your DVD-drive and DVD-movies by caching DVD-contents. It uses either the system memory or hard-disk drive to read ahead data and feeds it to the software DVD-player. That way the disc spins only for a short while when data is read.

The benefits are clear -- there's less mechanical wear on both the disc and the drive, and the noise while watching the movie diminishes a great deal. DVDIlde also considerably lowers the battery consumption on a laptop computer when watching a DVD-movie.

Definitely worth trying, if you use your PC as a DVD player.

I didnt like this program, the lag was terrible when it was loading movies, then the dvd's would skip sometimes... I deleted the program and things were back to normal. It worked even less on my laptop and both my machines are new and fast. SO I dont like this program but maybe someone does... I guess you will have to try for yourself.

That's just my two cents-
