Problum with CD combo Drive

By thetracker1099 ·
Im not really sure this is the problum, but like they say you have to start some where.I have a HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4120B/ Hitachi-LG CD-Rom one WD HDD-13 gig, WD HDD 80 gig, KVR 512 pc3200 400mhz mem stick, MSI KM266-8235 Mother board KM2M Combo ms-6738, cpu-Athlon XP1800+, using on board sound Realtek AC97 audio. Nvidia FX5200 GeForce. The problum is I can't get my DVD to play right, it runs fast slow, fast slow, sound, sounds ok, but the picture like I said, runs fast, slow. I hook the HDD to the Combo Drive, and the same with the other drive, but it dose the same. When I try to play a reg movie it never works right.If I pause it for a while and then start it up it runs great but then right back to fast, slow. Anyone has any new ideas, I'v given up trying to fix this.

First find out what ide channel the DVD rom is in (primary or secondary) and the master/slave setting of the drive.

Go to the control panel and click on system. Then click on the tab hardware, click on the button Device manager. Find the section for "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" and expand it by clicking on the plus sign. there should be a primary IDE channel and a Secondary channel. Click on the appropriate one for your dvd drive and then click on the advanced settings tab. In the device 0 and 1 sections (0 is master 1 is slave) choose the transfer mode to DMA if available. this should help if not let us know.
