1673S + cannot force DMA mode

#1

Hi,

Purchased this drive and am having some trouble with it. I cannot get WinXP to use DMA (it’s set to use DMA if available) but it’s reverting to PIO.

Nero infotool also reports DMA disabled.

I have two HDD on primary IDE; both have DMA enabled. 1673S is master on secondary channel (alone).

I’ve flashed the drive with JS0C but am having real problems burning anything, especially data write +R 4x.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Welcome:). Have you tried deleting(right click and choose ‘uninstall’) the secondary IDE channel from within ‘start>(right-click)my computer>properties>hardware>device manager’ and restarting the computer, letting windows reinstall the channel and hopefully, restoring your DMA,as listed in ‘device manager’, to a ‘current transfer mode’ of ‘Ultra DMA mode 2’
