hi … im having serious probls… i think.
could someone pleasea gratefully help me…
i have install all the latest m/brd and relevant drivers…
i cant install the firmware. says that my direcrtory is missing to the suggested one…
but the dvd is operating at correct speed…
the problem is. i dont know if its normal…
but the dvd when i play or jsut simply decode… you cant do anything really… it sorta locks up all the active windows applications so to speak, such as loading a new windows explorer page or simple programmes such as notepad… the screen window jsut goes whit. and you cant do any activity for a min or so… also … if you try and listen to music such as windows media player or nero while im dectipting or watching another movie… the sound sorta. like spreads so to speak like a long blurr. and keeps doing it parralysing everything…
this is not a crap computer and i have plenty of memory…
ide is on sata…
and dvd is on ide…
do you think i should deactivate system ide. and get windows one… as someone suggested. or can i say make a viratual drive on my hard drive and just copy betweeen the dvd and that virtual drive giving me more free access to my hard drive… whats happening 2 my memory?
im confused… appreciate and help you can give…
thanks so much
