  • VIA m10000 can not play dvd's smoothly

    I didn't think it would be an issue, but it is - I tried playing a dvd in my carputer and it is very jerky. The audio starts and stops, as does the picture. It's only using a 7" screen, so it's not like I am trying to runn full screen on a 19" monitor.

    I looked at the task manager during play, and the SYSTEM process is around 70% and PowerDVD process is about 25%. I am using PowerDVD (which came with the dvd drive).

    What could be causing this? Does the M10000 have enough HP to play dvd's? I have a wireless mouse...could this be slowing the system down?

    Oh yea, the video acceleration is set to MAX.

        Yes turn on dma, also if it's an old 2x dvd rom it might be jerky, especially playing DVD9's

        Are your drivers upto date

              I bought the m10000 2 months ago so I think it is a nehemiah. It is 1ghz with 512 meg of RAM.

              I'll check the DMA today after work.

                i bought one two weeks ago and it was an ezra there's still a lot of them floating around.

                check windows or use the utility at www.h-oda.com to verify you have a nehemiah

                    Well, last night I checked the DMA setting, and it allready was set to "use dma if availible", so I still have the problem. There is a box under the setting which says "current mode used" or something like that, and it should say "ultra dma..." if it is actually using DMA, but it does not. This leads me to believe it is not using DMA...so now the question is why? Maybe my DVD player does not support it? It was kind of cheap ($59 at best buy).

                    I also tried lowering the screen resolution, and to use less colors, but no success.

                    The only thing I have not done yet is update the drivers. Which drivers? The dvd rom drivers or the mobo ones? I never installed the dvd drivers...The drive just worked when I hooked it up.

                          Have you checked "enable hardware acceleration", in powerdvd video settings? Maybe it could help.
