I am trying to set up my linux to read dvd movies .. i have install all the libraries and the codecs.
Now my computer reads the DVD but its very jerky .. so i realized i needed to turn on the DMA on for th drive
however when i issued the command i got :
ANKIT-LAPTOP:/dev # hdparm -d1 /dev/dvd
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
HDIO_GET_DMA failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
did a bit of googling and found out that hdparm does not support SATA drives ....
now my question is what can i do to turn on the DMA ? right now it takes over an hour to burn a DVD ?!
thanks for all the help
