Mine is set to 0. SO I did sysctl hw.ata.atapi_dma=1 and it says:
sysctl: oid 'hw.ata.atapi_dma' is read only
Why is that?
It is a tunable as well, so set it in /boot/loader.conf.
atacontrol has shown me that the device was in PIO4, so I set it to
UDMA4 instead(which is what my drive should be using as it supports
it), but then my dvds couldnt be read so I tried UDMA2 and it
improved it heaps though not perfect, and it seems that mplayer seems
to crash more :S.
This is strange... Well, that the drive can't handle UDMA4 is not really
surprising, but you shouldn't see much issues with UDMA2.
*How* does mplayer crash?
