View Full Version : Choppy DVD playback
11-11-2001, 01:01 PM
Like the title says, I'm getting choppy DVD playback with my HP 9900 drive and ATI 64mb DDR card. Its beyond me why, though, cause I have plenty of ram and computing power...
Any suggestions? I'm going to try to d/l Directx 8.1 to see if it'll help... This is Win2k, btw.

Check your device manager. Your IDE controller should be set to DMA.

Apex got it right. I installed another DVD player from HP and it changed it to DMA, and unknowingly, I fixed the problem:). Thanks guys, but now, can someone explain what DMA means, and what it does?

DMA: Direct Memory Access. What this basically does is move its data from ram directly to the drive, making it faster by bypassing the cpu.
