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
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.
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)
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?
