I installed a Pioneer (Utobia 114) DVD ROM drive on a Windows 95 system. At first it seemed to be ok, but then when I got about 5 minutes into a movie it started playing jerky and finally froze up. The documentation suggested a change to DMA on the CD player. I tried this but wound up unable to restart the system except in Safe Mode where I couldn't reset the CD ROM's parameters because it didn't exist in Safe mode.
I wound up reinstalling the operating system and starting over. Now the DVD ROM plays music CD ROM's and is fine for data CD's, but when I load a DVD Movie and attempt to run the Utobia player, the movie(s) won't play (the VGA goes blank). The movies seem to be paused and/or stuck. The utility to set the region code lets me change to region 1, etc. but other than that, the player doesn't function.
Utobia's tech felt that the problem was that I hadn't downloaded all of the proper drivers for my motherboard, but when I did this it had no apparent affect.
What do you suggest?
