    hdparm -d 1 -X34 -k 1 /dev/hdc

    worked for me not even scsi emulation fixed the problems i was having.

    Yeah, I have noticed that after I setup SCSI emulation across all removeable media, the system is a bit snappier and more responsive.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Although, why arent you watching the new LOTR dvd set? Theres like 4 more hours of behind the scenes. I watched most of the first disc. Still have the second one to go

    sarah31: all i can get is -X33 on on dvd drive, DMA is enable w/o problems though. but this did not help near as much as SCSI emulation. And i did see it on the big screen!! the one movie i did not see on the big screen was Matrix... what a fool was I.

    Yes. They earned over $100 now from me. I went 4 times to see it in the theatre ($7.50 x3 + $3)

    The DVD they released ($20)

    The Collectors Edition DVD ($25)

    The Collector's Set DVD Box ($60)

    So yes, it is. Which reminds me -- I finally saw Star Wars Ep2. Am I the only one who thought it was seriously lacking, or is it now that I have been watching epic/classic movies up the wazoo, that I have become spoilt? (LOTR, Clash of the Titans, Conan, Heat, Ghost in the Shell ...)
