1620 stuck on PIO mode

vbimport

#1

I’ve tried uninstalling both the drives and restarting the system and that still didn’t work. Does anyone know how I can get this on DMA? I was told that a system restore would solve the problem in another thread I made. Is this a full-proof way of getting it to that setting or is there something easier? I really need some help on this one.


#2

Delete the IDE channel that the drive is on using Device manager and then reboot the system. Also make sure DMA is enabled in the BIOS.


#3

I found the problem. The drive was turned off in bios. Switched it on, and now DMA is there.
