I had to re-install my OS and MyHD after I disabled ACPI on my motherboard (trying to fix DVD stutter issues). On the previous install, I recall being able to setup MyHD to wake up from hibernation for recording and go into hibernation between reservations and after the last reservation. Now, I can't see these settings at all; and yes, I have enabled Hibernation under Control Panel->Power Settings. I am running the version that came with my card, which I am assuming is 1.55.


What's going on? Does MyHD need ACPI enabled for this feature? Will version 1.60 help?

Yes, ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) needs to be enabled (bios) for the OS to talk to the hardware that controls Hibernation/Suspend.
Thanks. So it looks like I'll be re-installing Windows again with ACPI enabled this time since disabling it didn't cure my DVD stutter problem anyway.

Did you try sharing your DVD drive and then using the mapped drive? When you share the drive NT will cache it for performance. This what I do when playing back HD transport streams I have saved to DVD. My DVD drive is too fast and that is what was causing the stuttering problem.

No, actually I bought myself a Pioneer (either 106s or 120s; can't tell because neither the box nor the paperwork says) slotted DVD drive, and playback is flawless. So I will now re-enable ACPI and either repair or re-install XP and see what I get. My guess? It will work flawlessly. That's what I get for trying to save a few bucks on a DVD-ROM drive.
