linuxmce@dcerouter:~$ gksudo echo 'ide=nodma' >/proc/cmdline
-bash: /proc/cmdline: Permission denied

Bear with me as I am not too fluent in Linux...
:)

Sorry for the delayed response.. didn't check my email over the weekend..

You can't echo anything to /proc/cmdline as that is read only. When kernel was booting up it puts all the entries here for reference by rest of the programs/software/services in case they want to know what were the options it started..

Will read the rest of the thread and see where you are at..

Thanks

SOLVED:
THANK YOU GUYS!!!

I had just swapped out the drive and not the cable. I made the assumption that the new cable that came with my mobo couldn't be bad. WRONG!
Swapping out the cable solved the issues being logged to /var/log/messages and also seems to have cleaned up the DVD playback.

Thanks again for your help.
Awesome...

Take care
