My DVD rom crashed when reading a dvd. The secondary IDE changed to PIO now I got it back to DMA. But it still doesn't work It still reads cd's.
Is the DVD part broken now

Did you try another DVD
If it still doesn't read other DVDs, have you cleaned the lens
If it still doesn't read DVDs after cleaning, but it reads CD-Rs, then R.I.P. your DVD drive

It doen't even read data dvd's anymore It crashed reading a scratched DVD (My standalone DVD player can still read :P so it doesn't really matter I just wanted to try making a KSVCD with mencoder from a dvd source


EDIT: My dvdrom is on the secondary IDE master shouldn't it be on a slave position or doesn't that matter?

That's the best place for it to be, because it's alone on a channel.
If you put it on the primary slave, the I/O would be shared with your primary master (hard disk), so you'll loose performance.
