Skippy CD Rom
No nothing to do with our favourite marsupial!
A while back I upgraded a machine from Win98SE to Win2K(SP2). Now when playing a CD or MP3 from a CD through Windows it has minute pauses every few seconds. Likewise if playing an avi or mpeg (for example) it does the same.
I've not changed anything in the BIOS, and I assume that a basic CDRom drive is pretty "standard" and doesn't require massively specific drivers, so I was content to let Win2K install the relevant ATAPI driver at start-up.
Any ideas? Reckon it's a Windows problem? Something else now causing conflicts? It worked fine under Win98SE.
On a side note, anybody know how to make it default in Win2K that at the prompt, pressing "up arrow" inserts the previous command? Weird that on some Win2K machines it does it, some it doesn't! (Doskey borked?)
