many times i recurred to this cd freaks forum to help myself up in solving several issues.

now is time for me to post new thread here in order to seek help.

i have a major respect for mr Kenshin because he seems to know a lot!

so this is my problem:

i just setup a system all brand new

mobo intel d845gvsrl
2 sticks kingston 256 ddr 400 , total 512!
hd 80 ide seagate barracuda 7200
and the infamous 4164B from lg.

win xp sp2 professional brazil
directx 9 (default)
mediaplayer 9 defaul
power dvd 6

so

when i am watching a movie with power DVD 5, or power dvd 6 or even win dvd…i noticed one weird behaviour of the drive: THE GREEN LED BLINKS TOO FAST!!! LIKE A MACHINE GUN.PRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

this makes the drive overload and lock the movie, makin impossibel to watch a blockbuster video, or even a home authored and burned dvd.

CHECK THIS:

IF I WATCH IN MEDIAPLAYER 9 the LED , the green one BLINKS SLOWN, AT A NORMAL BEHAVIOUR. it means like, a , blink 1 per second… (sometimes chancge when more white on the screen of course)

so resuming:

if i play with windvd, powerdvd…the led blinks FAST and the movie after 5 minutes LOCK

if i play mediaplayer …the led blinks SLOW and all is ok

so what i am supposed to do?

move around the DMA seetings? i cant find out the options to enable disable DMa on my xp.

i think the DMA is already on in XP…

so …what i do?

why mediaplayer access the drive in a cool , slow way

and the others overloads the drive making the led blink sooooooo fast?
