Lite On 851s No DVD Playback :-(, everything else works

Just purchased a Lite On 851S Dual DVDRW so go with my just built, new pc.

MSI K8N Motherboard
AMD 3000+ 64
Corsair 1Gig DDR
Western Digital drives.
GForce MMX200 video card(old crap, but works)

So after building this guy, I install the Lite On. No drivers since it says windows xp will handle, which it did. Device Manager appeared happy. Cd works, installed software from it, I ripped a DVD with dvd encrypter, I burnt A Data DVD in -R. I read that data DVD on the drive. Heres the Problem: I CANNOT GET BASIC DVD PLAYBACK. I tried 30 dvd’s that worked in my old antique dvd player, these are commercial dvds, and each one I insert shows up in My COmputer, but I cannot explore or double click because the the windows freeze, and the only way I can get them to unfreeze is to take out the cd via eject. I tried using Power DVD Pro and WIndows WM.

So I returned and got another one, same problem. I flashed bios. Same problem. I formatted, reinstalled, uninstalled Windows SP2 reinstalled it.

Majot sure the DMA was on set to “auto from Bios”

Im going crazy. What can I do? What could the damn problem be?

The windows freeze, I dotn even get to the DVD title page, but I do get reads from Data DVDS.

:frowning:

Thanks

Just rip them and play from hdd :stuck_out_tongue:

How is the drive connected. Use Nero Infotool to check you Configuration/DMA and ASPI and post the results of these tabs from Nero.

I installed the app…

ASPI Tab…
ASPI Installation: System ASPI

Hardware:
Has ? marks for everything but memory and sound and video card

Configuration Tab:
ID 2 (0): LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-851S
auto run on.

I’m not sure what info you are looking for?

Thanks

Oh yea, its the primary on my second IDE.

what about ide drivers (via or nforce)…make sure there are no third party ide drivers…just use standard microsoft ones.
also if you have aspi make sure its 4.6 or earlier…

Ok, how do I check on my aspi edition? Im not too knowledgable here.

use nero info tool…if you wanted to if you read the top sticky about posting it will tell you how to paste everything in here so we can have a look at your hardware…software and settings…cant type the command as it wont show lol…but it tells you in sticky about it
Please read: Posting guidelines for this forum
point number 4 is what ya need to read

also seen a few more threads with similar problems…have you installed SP2 by any chance?..just pulled this from another thread.

LiteOn tech support says there is a bug in SP2 that is causing the drive to flake out.

it wouldnt work before i installed sp2

i will post better results once i get home to the machine.

OK… THIS IS WEIRD.

On my way home I was thinking, and I was thinking about the cable I connected from my dvdrw to my motherboard/soundcard. When I built my PC i used an old one from previous stuff. I assumed I only needed this cable for like playback audio… THEN IT HIT ME.

“REMOVE IT” maybe its bad…

Rebooted, removed it, restarted, PLAYBACK WORKS, AND WITH AUDIO!!!

AWESOME IT WORKS, WHY WITH AUDIO, AND WHATS THE POINT OF THIS??? TO USE HEADPHONE OFF THE DVDDRIVE ITSELF?

Im shocked!

now its not working again…

heres my nero info tool report

Nero InfoTool 2.27

im really stumped

restarted, wm plays dvds, restated a few times, wm kept playingthe dvds, power dvd will not play crap, always freezes. i made progress uninstallin this audio cable. still not 100% therem but almost ocntent.

The audio cable is for audio cds. DVDs use AC3 which the drive does not decode internaly, so it is ok to get the DVD audio without the cable.

Try a different video card!

so even though other dvd drives worked with the card, this may not? wm is playing moves intermittenly, power dvd is a diff story. not worth a new video card at this point. thanks for the input though
