Recently, my computer has been playing up. My computer is set up thus:
IDE1: Master: Maxtor 6Y080L0 (80GB) UDMA6
Slave : Maxtor 4G100J5 (100GB) UDMA6
IDE2: Master: Lite-On LTR-52246S UDMA2
Slave: Liteon DVD-ROM LTD-165H PIO Mode
I'm running an Athlon XP 2400+ with a 512mb stick of memory on an Asus A7N8X Deluxe 2,
When copying files from the DVD drive, if I am playing any music (with Winamp), the sound begins to distort, and within seconds the sound is very distorted. When the file transfer is complete the sound is distorted until i restart Winamp. According to Device Manager, the DVD drive is running in PIO mode. Attempts to change this to DMA mode have failed. I've connected the drives with ATA133 cable (HDD's) and i think i've done the same to the DVD and CDR/W. In POST, the mode of the DVD is ATA44. When copying from the CDR/W, the music remains fine. I am listening to the music through the onboard sound of the motherboard.
I am at a loss to figure out the problem, as are my friends. Any help is appreciated. If there is any more information needed, i'll provide it. Thanks
