Hello, Im sorry to bother you all but I’ve seem to have messed up my dvd drive after reinstalling windows xp. I have been wrestling with this problem for quite some time now and I tought that it’s time to turn to others as I don’t seem to get it fixed by myself.
The problem orginated as I reinstalled my xp where my drive was working fine. I assumed that it would work just as well on the new windows but now it just seems to read the disk occasionally and then lose it. I first noticed this problem while watching dvd as it became laggy and choppy. After cheking the web I realized that my drive was automatically set for PIO and not DMA as it should’ve been.
Well, I started fighting it (the vbs script didn’t work) and finally got my drive to use ultra dma mode 5. The funny thing is that now dvds play well but they are lost after awhile, as they wouldn’t play any longer. Also, I canno’t install anything from a dvd.
The difference between my old setup and now one is my hard drive which now has 1TB of space. I couldn’t set dvd to PIO mode because I didn’t have RAID drivers for my hard drive (I think) but MSI update cleared that for me.
Things I’ve already done several times:
- Uninstall and reinstall lg firmware 1.02
- Uninstall Ide channels and let windows figure them out
- Removed jumper from DVD drive, later putted it back as master
- Deleted upper and lower class filters
- Tampered with registry
- Installed AnyDVD, which seems to be a little bit of help
- Deleted pxhelp20
- Checked for MSI updates thru live update
HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H22N SCSI cdrom device
Location: Bus Number 0, Target ID 0, LUN 0
Device Upper filters: redbook
Device Lower filters: imapi
Class Upper and Lower filters: none
Somehow this is in Primary IDE Channel even tough most of the posts on the web talked only about secondary ide channels.
The windows I installed is SP3 and all the hotfixes I found were too old for it, so it should be up to date. I was wondering if there’s a way to completely remove any information concerning my dvd drive and reinstall it from blank?
If anyone has anyideas how to fix this, I would be grateful. Thanks for your time for reading about my problems.
