40125s will only work In PIO mode?

Ok, When I install my new 40125s it will only work in PIO mode. If I go into my second IDE ch. and change it to DMA it removes my cdrw. I changed it from slave to master and samething.

I tried to uninstall the 2nd IDE ch and reboot but same thing. Im going to install the newest 4in1’s to see if it helps.

DMA enabled in BIOS. Newest ASPI drivers.

Anyone have any suggestions???

Thanx

Anyone have any suggestions???

How about some more information…what OS, what board, what else do you have on the same channel?

WinXP Pro
Also On same IDE 16x DVD
Borad: ABIT kt7e
512mb pc133
amd duron 1.2ghz

Anything else?

What DMA status does the DVD drive show?

Ultra DMA Mode 2,

BTW. New 4in1’s didnt help

Thanx fir the replys thus far!

Hi,

Do this, it has worked for me and many others, I found this out by mistake ages ago.

Goto in WinXP:

Right-click My Computer and select:

Properities/Hardware/Device Manager/IDE ATA-ATAPI controllers

I’m not sure if it matters as never needed to test as mine always set to it, but under Transfer Mode, make sure it is set to DMA if available and select OK.

Then go back in and DELETE the channel that your LiteON is connected to by Right-click and select Uninstall.

Re-Boot and it should be fine.

P.S. You can do the same for your DVD-Rom.

Cheerz

:slight_smile: :smiley: :wink:

Ive tried that and doesnt work.

Look here:

Installed In PIO Mode:

Now When DMA Is turned on:

Does anyone know what is going on here??? This is driving me crazy.

Thanx

Why do you have 2 primary and 2 secondary controllers?

I dont know! I though I was sapposed to?

Anyways…I fixed my prob. I put my CDRW on IDE2 of my IDE controller card. Works like a charm.

So you have a controller card!!
Typically, the most functional arrangement is to put only HD’s on the PCI controller card, and put CD drives on the mainboard controller. It depends on the controller card.

You should have tried KennyC’s trick, cos’ it’s just fabulous !
And it worked well on my PC - new hardware was found ( LTR-48125W ) with DMA on again.

Nothing worked for me and I then happened to found this thread
and even tried the above link’s info first but with no success.

So, KennyC, I’m really grateful for your tremendous help here ! :bow: :wink: :smiley:
