Hi Mike
I did as u suggested with the results

root at blubox:~# hdparm -d1 /dev/dvd
 setting using_dma to 1 (on)
 HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Invalid argument

However, I am trying to watch an avi file that is saved to my harddisk.
hdparm /dev/hda gives
 using_dma    =  1 (on)
The video output is still slow (kinda choppy)
