*Here's a repost of something I asked about on *PCDAW, and got a couple of replies to. I have *since checked (again) DMA and some other things, *and all the settings seem to be fine: I keep having freezes and playback problems in Windows 2000 with Nuendo and Wavelab, and when I look back at the event viewer after this type of problem, there are always a string of disk and atapi errors, applying to both hard disk controllers, and both of my audio hard disks. I also get a BSOD stop error every day or two, and the errors upon rebooting are the same types. Any ideas? Is my mobo hosed? This happens with several different drives (I do audio with removable IDE drives), so I don't think it's them specifically. I recently did a wipe and reinstall, and I went from 10G partitions to full 80G (on my 80g drives) or two 60G (on my 120's). That's really the only difference, and the thing was stable before. *and a couple days later, after a few answers, I *posted: Any more input? This problem is beyond my scope of knowledge, and I'm on the verge of buying another motherboard out of sheer frustration (plus, it's ATA100, not 133, and it doesn't drive keyboard/mouse extensions really well. And it only *mostly* plays nice with my Hammerfall, a known issue). So, any ideas? I'm pretty frustrated, because I've just about exhausted all the things *I* know to do. Thanks.
