I have just put together this Windows XP PC.
When I went to Device Manager to check if DMA is enabled for my hard/optical drives. To my surprise, I could not find the “Advanced Setting” tab under all IDE channels to check DMA (see screenshots).
What is going on? Mine is Windows XP Pro SP2 will all latestes updates.
I used this forum tutorial to Enable/Check DMA under Windows XP.
Please advise. Thanks!!!
5 IDE hard drives - one for the OS and the other four are raided.
Three opticals - DVDRW and CDRW.
All hard drives and opticals are working - except that I have not burned anything (new system)
Please let me if additional info is needed.
