This is a hardware issue. CD devices are much slower than hard drives, which is why you experience delays when seeking in the video: the hard drive can find your seeking area much faster, but your optical drive requires more time to find it. If you really wanted, I suppose you could try to get a drive that markets itself based on speed.

As for why the problem is more apparent in MPC than in VLC, I presume it's in the way that the program handles control to the drive, but I'm not positive. I don't know if there's a way to fix the subtitle issue in VLC.
