Here is my problem (I am not really a computer whiz).
I have a new 716A which I haven’t been able to get fast burn speeds when recording DVD. It would take 45-55 minutes to burn one DVD. I have two hard drives that I burn from. The Plextor is separate and running as the master. From what I have been able to figure, I get faster burns from my main hard drive which is the master(Ultra DMA Mode 2). But when I try to burn from my second drive, which is the slave, I only can get PIO Mode. It is from this drive that I get the slow burns. It is from this drive that I burn most of my data.
My question is:
How do I get my secondary drive to go to DMA Mode? Is there a fix for this?
My system is a Dell 2.2 Ghrtz with 640MB of RAM. I have checked my connector ribbons(OK), done test writes(OK), etc. Everything seems to be in order except for my secondary drive in PIO Mode.
Any help would be appreciated.
