Maybe this could be an explanation. What HDD do you have and do you have ATA drivers installed correctly ? It's just an ideea.
Sure, i was suspectig.I have Seagate 40GB 7200RPM 2MB cache HDD. 2 GB is free totaly (total in 2 partitions). ATA drivers are correct, working OK(intel ich4)

It is 3 years old. Sometimes, i hear "contact" sounds irregularly and very rarely. It works in UDMA5(highest).

I run "Seatools" to check everythig about my drive, it was passed OK.
I contacted Seagate via mail, they said if the sounds are not exessive, the sounds are normal and there is no need to replace.

Adicoto, i suspect from my HDD but i haven't had any physical prolems, but how can i determine? The only bad rememberance is cleaning logical bad sectors on this drive and now there is no bad sectors.

How can i be sure that video playback problems is not because of HDD?

and how to test and know, there is no "head contact" or platter failure?
