stuttering dvd playback
I have a problem with playing dvd's.
They stutter. I already know the cause (I think) but still need a fix.
I use an IBM ThinkPad A31p on which I have installed Suse 8.1
It has a combo DVD/CD-RW drive which is installed on dev/sr0.
In my menu.lst file (grub) i have the following things that relate to the drive:
Now, I read that for playing back dvd's I should not use the scsi emulation, but for burning I do.
All mounts of /dev/cdrecorder, /dev/cdrom & /dev/dvd link to /dev/sr0.
I've tried linking dvd to hdc, but that doesn't work: xine or mplayer won't see the drive.
So, how do I point the /dev/dvd & the /dev/cdrom to the ide device without scsi emulation and leave the /dev/cdrecorder on sr0?
Has anybody got a clue?
Thnx in advance,
if you're using scsi emulation on a device then it will affect the drive no matter how you access it, as there is only one driver that can be loaded at one time.
So I sould either use SCSI or IDE. Let's say I switch to IDE.
How do I do that and can do I keep my write functionality of the drive?
hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc fixes the problem.
now where do I put this so DMA is on after a fresh boot ......
Hmm I fixed the prob.
Turns out to be a STFW issue. (DUH)
I've put the following @ the end my etc/init.d/boot.local file:
echo -en "\nboot.local: Tuning the IDE hard disks..."
if [ -x /sbin/hdparm ]
hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc
echo " FAILED: /sbin/hdparm not found."
No problems n.e.more
