Need a bit of help as I'm stumped here...

I recently upgraded the HD in my laptop (80 to 320). I reinstalled Windows XP on this new HD, and proceded to install all my programs. This is where I run into problems.

When ever the computer is accessing the DVD drive (read or write) it slows to a grind... mouse stutters across the screen, audio/video skip and jump, even typing is slowed down.

I have burnt 2 Wii games so far on this install, and I can only burn at 0.8x. Yes, ZERO POINT EIGHT. Before I was able to speed along at 8x max.

Reading from the drive, DVD or CD gives me the same results...

What are my options here? Should I just reinstall Windows? Could it be the new HD that's affecting my DVD drive?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Wow... thanks alot man...

I would have never thought to check the DMA! I had to uninstall the secondary IDE controller to force it into DMA mode, but it works now...

I've been working with computers since the Apple ]['s, and would never have thought to check the DMA... just helps to have a forum!
