No DMA on Samsung DVD/CD Wtr Combo Drive

  Giggle n' Bits 19:35 06 Jan 05

I replaced my older Samsung DVD/CD Wtr Combi drive because it wasnt reading any kid of disks and the new drive even after a clean re-install of Me still has problems.

I have found in Device Mngr properties the Samsung drive has no DMA, it won't play DVD's and opening the CD Wtr software also reports error or drive not found to be comapible. Using the Samsung/Toshiba Adaptec Roxio v6 which cam with drive.

Should I have DMA Enabled, everytime I tick and reboot its gone again the tick that is.

I set the jumper to CSL as the older drive then tried Master and still no play.

Any ideas please.
