    Is DMA enabled on your DVD reader.

    I think 2k has a device manager. Open it, find your IDE channels, the secondary should be your DVD. Right click on properties. One of the tabs will have the transfer mode. Look for DMA.

    Just a note..the DMA was turned on on my amd 2400 system. also i used that drive tool in Nero to verify the DMA settings.. Again thanks

    i am having the exact same problem..but a litle different...when i first started using dvdshrink..it was really fast..then all of a sudden it started playing back really choppy and taking longer than usual to reauthor and analyze...
    i can't pinpoint what the issue is..but i think it may have to do with possibly installing software...but im not sure what software on my comp is conflicting with the speed of dvdshrink. any ideas?

    ยท Why is my drive using PIO mode instead of DMA in Windows XP?

    Windows XP will turn off DMA mode for a device after encountering certain errors during data transfer operations. If more that six DMA transfer timeouts occur, Windows will turn off DMA and use only PIO mode on that device. In this case, the user cannot turn on DMA for this device. The only option for the user who wants to enable DMA mode is to uninstall and reinstall the affected channel, "Primary IDE Channel" or "Secondary IDE Channel". Reboot the system and Windows XP will reinstall the driver for the channel. Windows XP downgrades the Ultra DMA transfer mode after receiving more than six CRC errors. Whenever possible, the operating system will step down one UDMA mode at a time (from UDMA mode 4 to UDMA mode 3, and so on). If the mini-IDE driver for the device does not support stepping down transfer modes, or if the device is running UDMA mode 0, Windows XP will step down to PIO mode after encountering six or more CRC errors. In this case, a system reboot should restore the original DMA mode settings. All CRC and timeout errors are logged in the system event log. These types of errors could be caused by improper mounting or improper cabling (for example, 40-pin instead of 80-pin cable). Or such errors could indicate imminent hardware failure, for example, in a hard drive or chipset.
