I have a Dell Dimension 8400 which chame with a Philips DBD8601 DVD +R/+RW
Today i brought a Pioneer 108 in Black , replaced the Philips drive, set to Cable Select as i the drive was selected before
When switching on the computer i i got an error message saying:
Drive 5 not found: Parallel ATA PATA=1 (PRI IDE SLAVE 1)
Strike F1 to continue , F2 to run setup utlity.
Windows XP sees the drive. I updated my BIOS to the latest version but that has no effect. DMA is not enabled on this drive and i cannot seem to enable it, my DVD-ROM is okay , so it my hard disk but the writer isn’t
I can use the Writer to read discs etc…
I have just burnt a DVD-R at x4 and it took 52 minutes ??, what’s going on ???
