Improve DVD playback

When installing a DVD-ROM drive, enable the DMA data transfer mode to reduce processing load and facilitate smooth playback.

When you’re installing a DVD-ROM drive, be sure to enable the drive’s DMA data transfer mode. This will reduce the processing load on your system’s CPU and allow the DVD video to play more smoothly. Enabling the DMA mode for the drive usually involves checking the “DMA” checkbox in the drive’s Properties dialog (check the drive maker’s installation/setup instructions for detailed steps). If you cannot enable the drive’s DMA data transfer mode (i.e., Windows 2000 doesn’t support the DMA mode), you may then be forced to upgrade the system CPU (or install an MPEG-2 decoder card) for smoother video playback performance.
