My system and it A64 3200+ with DFI lanparty UT NF3 250Gb.
Master and Slave and Hard drives.
Master: LiteOn 832S
Slave: Liteon 52246
Under Windows XP in device manager it shows up as ATA33 UDMA2 or 3?
But when I play a DVD using PowrDVD 5, it would freeze and pause for awhile and sound would be gone.
I checked the device manager and it shows the liteon 832S as PIO mode now and that it had to downgrade the connection and advise to check my cables.
So replaced the cable and made it as the only drive in the Secondary IDE Channel but the same happens.
What’s wrong…is something wrong with drive itself? Do I need a new firmware upgrade? I notices there is option for “digital out” in device for the drive…;do I need switch it off?
Thanks for your help!
