I've been having trouble trying to figure out why my PC won't play DVD
One issue that a number of sites have told me is to ensure that DMA is
enabled on my DVD_ROM drive (for that matter all devices including hard
drives). When I go into Device Manager, there is no entry available for
enabling DMA. I then read that if you have Intel Application Accelerator
(IAA) it hides the entry for DMA in Device Manager. I then go into IAA and
it seems that all devices (hard drives & dvd-rom) are configured for UDMA-2.
Is it possible that this is the source of my problems and I should be
manually forcing all devices to operate at DMA MW-2? Or should I disable
IAA all together, and if so how do you do that?
I'm running Win 98SE on a P4 2GHz Intel machine. I mention this because IAA
was not around when Win98SE was developed and perhaps I shouldn't be running
I'm asking questions because I'm a computer novice and can't afford to be
rebuilding my computer because I messed around with something I shouldn't.
I've ruled out software as a possible problem because I've tried three
different DVD players and they all don't work.
