i just removed the capacitor at the scex point of my v9.
the good news is, it does not reboot/crash anymore.
the bad news is, it still skips on reading dvd's (audio cd's seem to be fine).
the dvd player makes skipping noises. it will make the dvd spin, the skipping sounds occur, then it stops spinning, and the whole process will repeat again.
i'm using Ritec-G04 DVD-r discs, burned at 1x with K3b (Linux/GNU KDE burning tool). the copy used to work before i ****ed up with the scex point, also, original dvd's can't be read.
