dvd playback problem


i m having a dvd playback problem.
When dma is disabled (turned off) i have the problem that movies have
trouble sometimes and 'shock'.
So you say :'turn dma on then'. Well, i did this and then the distortion
problem is over,BUT
then comes my problem : my player won't play some of my dvd's. he says :
unknown format and some other errors.
(so this is ONLY whem dma is enabled, and another thing : i ve noticed that
this problem occurs with dvd's that
have dd and dts on the same disc.....)

Welcome to DVD Talk!

I'm afraid I have no idea what that could be. I do have a couple of questions though. What motherboard are you using and what kind of cable do you have going to your DVD drive, the older ATA/33 40-wire one or the newer ATA/66 80-wire one?

Also, I removed your telephone number from your post. You should really think whether you want that posted in such a public place.
