hi. i seem to be having a problem with my cd drives.
i have a dual boot system with xp/suse 8.2. on my hda. i also have a raided pci hd for hde/f. initially my computer ran fine with both os's, but i had some issues with my dvd playback with xine (and kplayer for that matter)
i ended up running the command
#hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc
to try and "enable dma" on my drive
my hdc is a dvd player (/media/dvd - default)
my hdd is a dvd+r (/media/cdrecorder - default)
after running this command, my dvd player worked fine.
when rebooting back into xp, all of my hardware seems to be going annoyingly slow (when ripping a dvd iso on my computer, for example, i can only achieve speeds of ~1.6x, where i used to get ~4.6x). I am new to suse and to linux in general, and was wondering if the command i used would somehow affect my windows in any way.
if anyone has any ideas, i would appreciate them.
