I have tried everything, I even called in a favor from a much older friend who is a technician to walk me through bios. We're at a loss.
Issue: When DVD drive reading, whole comp lags, audio stutters, video stutters. Burning takes 2-3 hours (not shrinking and decrip, those take an hour each, this is just the burning taking 3 hours!)... you can fathom my depression.
MSI P965 NEO (Bios 1.5)
Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111D (1.29 Firmware)
1) checked that i'm using 80 wire... thats good.
2) Attempted to enable DMA... Secondary IDE controller device 0 (auto detect unavailable), DMA if available, Current transfer PIO only(seemingly unchangable).
3) Installed Jmicron_raid_mb according to http://forum.msi.com.tw/index.php?topic=100990.msg743841 thread.
4) ran through bios and technician told me I shouldn't be running raid because I don't use multiple drives. ...and a raid driver had been what was installed in the first place, let alone the updated one.
Nothing has helped.

Does anyone have a clue what I may have missed? I'm not too knowledgable here... I just cook with the recipies I'm advised on to the best of my ability. I could really use some help. My buddy is trying to figure it out, and he's quite experienced and is almost at a loss. I've tried...and I was lost to begin with. Consider it a challenge?
In your debt and appreciating all the help I can get.
