I have recently bought a new pc (Dell XPS 420) and now when i burn DVD i find that about halfway through them they start to jump/freeze/pixelate.
I am using the same software as i previously used on my old pc ( VSO/Shrink/Nero) without any of these issues, now with a faster more powerful machine i find im getting these issues.
When i originally did my first few DVDs with my old pc i got this problem and after a little investigation i found that by enabling DMA it was cured, but with my new (and so called improved) PC i cannot enable DMA as all the drives are SATA, i was going to just install an IDE DVD drive but alas no IDE sockets anywhere to be seen.
Is there something i can do/tweak or set that will improve the burn quality so as i dont end up with the greatest collection of cd coasters ever???
I have 2 DVD drives, one NEC Optiarc and the one that came with the PC PBDS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
