dvd dma error????

ive been having playback probs with my dvd player (pioneer 16x) for awile. i get jerky video all the time and i went on these forums to ask how to fix it and some of u said to enable DMA which is already on accourding to my device manager. In my power dvd folder it has a DMA enabler prog and with it i tryed to enable DMA and it said to restart my comp, i did this and i got an error... "ASPIx123124" error or somethin like that and then my comp freezes. I have no idea what the prob is, ive tryed many things to get my dvd playback to work and nothing has. Ive never had these playback problems untill recently and i would like this fixed asap cause i use this dvd to watch all my movies.

if any additional info is needed i will gladly give it to u.

Perhaps you could tell us what your motherboard is and whether your DVD drive is a master or slave. I'd recommend master for a start. Then uninstall PowerDVD, reinstall, and check "enable DMA" when it first starts up.

I don't know that motherboard in particular, but it seems you have the rest in order. You didn't specifically install any Intel IDE drivers with your motherboard, did you? Asus provided a CD that you used for the drivers, right?

You have your DVD drive set as Auto in the BIOS? Your IDE configuration in the Device Manager says to use DMA if available?

Do you have a device as the slave to the DVD drive? If so, what is it? And have you tried disconnecting it?

that mobo is the standard asus mobo. no i did not install any special drivers for the mobo(i have a AMD not INTEL), yes in device manager it says DMA if available. and i do have a cd burner connected to the drive but it has always been connected to it since day 1. this problem has only started recently and appeared out of nowhere (i changed nothing to the hardware of the comp) i have no idea what it could be.

im usin the newest geforce 3 drivers, and the only thing i have done in past months that had do do anything with video whatsoever was install a prog to allow me to watch divx movies on media player. oh and i didnt install the geforce 3 drivers untill after i started having this prob, i was usin the generic drivers that came with the card then upgraded due to the problem.

I have a computer dedicated to playing DVD and other multimedia. I back it up frequently and am extremely careful as to what drivers or software I install.

Now I'm not advocating that you go that far, but how about creating a new partition and install a fresh copy of your OS on it and only the files you'll need to watch DVD. Maybe add some other functionality, but only after you back it up. That way, when it goes bad, you can return to a state where it was working properly.

so after you installed this Divx program the performance on your dvd player went down?

than we may have a winner. have you tried uninstalling this program( although since most uninstaller programs leave so much it is very posible it will not correct the problem)
