thanks again for the posts. i'm still having trouble. in regards to Digitall's post...i meant that the sound playback is bitty on any dvd i play...not copied media....retail movies etc.
However, i'm really not sure what the problem is...when i use DMA mode the dvd will play but then after 10 secs wll hand...but also, if its in DMA mode when i access the hardrive then that make it hang also - could it be a conflict with a hard drive? if so how do i change this...i have two hard drive's ...a 12gb as my sytem drive (c:)...and the 120gb as my data.
It seems to make a lot of noise in PIO mode when playing discs but is super quiet for the first ten secs or however long in DMA mode. So it would be good to get it working properly in DMA. I have all the latest drivers for my M/Board, soundcard, etc...
HELP guys! haha...thanks.
