I have an athlon 1.3 512mb , 2 hard drives a dvd rom and a yamaha 24x burner ,
i have the dvdrom as a slave on my primary ide channel w/ the HD , and the yamaha as a master on my secondary IDE channel ,
when I leave the transfer settings modes (on the IDE Channels in control panel) at PIO only on all four devices my computer never resets when burning a cd
but I can’t do anything while my computer is burning a cd (all the programs come to a hault) making burnproof or whatever u want to call it pointless
when I go back and enable DMA on all four drives whenever I copy a cd the computer randomly resets
what causes this ?
Can anyone help me w/ configuration options as far as PIO and DMA settings go so I can maximize my time / performance on my machine
