Problems with LITEON DVD Drive playback

By Matt-man

  1. I have a new machine and have one drive a LITEON 16xRW, it is linked via IDE (No Audio Cable was told not necessary if running XP) however i am having many problems with playback on the device.

    It is linked as a slave drive on IDE 1 of the motherboard HD being the master, when playing DVD's (Power DVD 5.0) it sticks and freezes with the sound all breaking up.

    If i insert an audio CD and open media player the system freezes and won't play until i eject the CD.

    If anyone has any ideas on how to rectify these problems it would be appreciated.

    Try setting the jumper to master and hook it up to IDE2...

    I have now set it up as master on IDE 2 and am having the same issues.

    check in device manager that the transfer mode for the ide channel it's on is set to DMA, and not PIO?
    try shutting down all background apps and see if that makes a difference?
