Oh yeah, how can I tell what is on my secondary IDE channel, if my hdd is on it, would that harm anything to change it to DMA?
PIO stands for Programmed Input/Output, DMA - Direct Memory Access.
No, there will be no harm done if you set it as DMA, it's supposed to be like that.
Looks like your drive's on the 2ndary channel.
Finally, for making it sure and since you have Nero installed,
run the bundled Nero Info Tool and see your configuration in Configuration tab there :
