This is the problem
 I have a Terratec DMX 6fire card, a dvd rom drive, an Aopen 48x12x50 drive, K7 Triton 400 Series 7VAXP Ultra AGP8X/FSB33 motherboard and XP1800 AMD Athlon,  80GB and 120Gb hard drives.  The operating system is XPHome.  It relates to when I pay a CD or DVD in either drives I get a kind of clicking in the background, like static on a record and the sound especially on DVDs has a gurgle to it as if the machine cannot cope with the amount of info it is receiving.  I have changed the cd drives 4 times.  If I open/import a cd track say in wavelab the resulting wave is fine.  I have fiddled with the buffer sizes but this just introduces a high pitched squeak!  I think that the sound card has been changed also but to no avail.  Any ideas?  I havce viewed some similar


problems on this site and their resolution but the details relate to XP and are not crude enough for my limited computer knowledge.

Hey buddy, you have come to the right place as I have just solved your problem on my own system!

Your problem is that you have not initiated DMA (Direct Memory Access) for your CD and DVD drives.

The easy solution here is to download 'Power DVD for XP' and use their DMA setup utility. It takes about 20 seconds.

I had had enough of my system choking on all my DVDs. I now have a home cinema running of it no probs.

Try running is Diagnostics Startup Mode or disable your antivirus software to see if the sound problem goes away.
