This is from hdparm. It looks like, you're starting it automatically

Ok thanks for that.
Just recently I have changed DMA to "on", manually by putting on between the quotation marks.
Can this have anything to do with it?


In /etc/sysconfig/hardware->DEVICES_FORCE_IDE_DMA ? Then not only "on", better: "/dev/hda:on". There is a description in the file.

I haven't changed anything in the boot process ( not that I know of anyway).
I also have used "hdparm -v /dev/dvd" and then "hdparm -X <udma mode> -d 1 /dev/dvd.
Could it be that the udma mode is set wrong?

To enable DMA use -d1 without space.
