Well it's definitely burning faster, but I have just noticed the buffer (in Nero) is still bouncing up and down like nobody's business.
My mobo (with the latest BIOS) has a VIA-686B chipset and I have the latest VIA (4.51) drivers installed, yet it's still saying MWDMA2 not UDMA2.
I have also tried what was suggested in the FAQ as well as one of the registry tweaks that has been posted to this forum, but still no joy.
Does anybody have any further suggestions?
I have to admit, I'm getting sick and tired of compatibility problems with the AMD\VIA combination, it's back to Intel for me next time.
