DMA for my new DVD-ROM

By ghtrimble ·
I installed a new Delta 12x DVD-ROM on my computer, and everything was and is working good untill I tried to play an actuall DVD disk in it, I got a message saying the DMA setting was not on so I went to the setting to turn it on and did the restart. I tried the program again and got the same message. I checked the settings and DMA was once again unchecked. What I want to know is this a driver problem, or a system problem. The computer is a 400mhz celeron, intergrated vedio, with a V21000 video accelerator installed. Let me know if you need more info and I will post it. Thanks in advance.

Being a Celeron 400 the mobo may not be able to support DMA. Windows unchecks the DMA box if DMA won't work, so somewhere along the line there is something which isn't DMA capable.

Thanks, that is what I was kinda thinking, but was hoping there would be a work around.
