I have Theatertek patched to the latest 1.5.25 version. I installed reclock which is now supposed to work with CMedia. TT crashed multiple times. I finally got it running, discontinued reclock and ffdshow, and it runs. However, I now get a message that DMA is not enabled although according to device manager, it is enqabled for both IDE channels in XP. I uninstalled the DVD drive and had XP reinstall it, to no avail. HELP

This message appeared for me too when I installed the 1.5.25 patch.

However, in XP DMA is automatically selected by the OS if the drive/IDE controller supports it. So, it seems that the message is a spurious one.


FWIW, once I unistalled TT and CP and then re-installed TT, the message disappeared.

What type of system do you have?


If you have a P3 or P4 you can probably install the intel application accelerator which will enable DMA automatically -- your motherboard must have an intel chipset (i810 to i875). But install the chipset utility first:

If you have a via chipset then download the latest via 4-in-1 drivers (called hyperion now):

That should enable DMA after you reboot a couple of times of course.


If you have neither of those chipsets, then you need to go to device manager, uninstall the IDE ultra controller (under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers), then reboot the system.
