arg im frustrated. WINXP sets my asus e616 dvd into pio mode even though its set to 'use dma when available'. Its a slave on primary IDE and BIOS detects 'ATA100', therefore UDMA. All bios settngs are 'auto'. I have
amd athlon 1400
40 GB maxtor on prim master
DVD e616 on prim slave
Acer 8x cdrw on sec slave
40 GB maxtor on HP RAID onboard chip prim master
why doesnt WINXP detect UDMA 5 mode? WHy does it say PIO ??
it used to be fine, on UDMA mode, i dont know what i have changed.
help would be very welcome
