A while ago I installed a new GSA-H55N into a new machine, I have been experiencing problems with playing back DVD and CD's (possibly only burnt CD's, though not tested this enough).
I am getting a constant 'zzzzz' sound when I playback DVD's, the original sound is still discernable beneath this though. For CD's, I get the occasional glitch, this occurs when the green LED on the unit turns on. This makes me think it is a buffering issue, though I have no idea how to prove/test this.
In the drive properties, I have three (err, memory failure here!) thingies for the primary IDE, two are set to DMA, the other PIO. I tried disabling the PIO , and the drive stopped working completely.
I have also tried deleting the video codecs, re-booting and playing a DVD. No success. I've also updated the firmware.
My spec: Intel Q6600. ASUS P5N-ESLI. MVIDIA 8600GT. SAMSUNG 80Gb SATA 2. SAMSUNG 250Gb SATA 2. ABIT Wireless PCI-E card (disabled). Windows XP Pro, SP2 - last updated Nov 2007. Coolermaster Elite 330.
I have managed to burn DVD's and CD's which have played back fine - at least on other peoples machines.
Any help greatly appreciated!
