Hi, I bought my 1620Pro about two mths back, and patched it using The Dangerous Brothers’ B7U9 RPC-1 patch. Everything worked well until recently, when, while burning with Nero, the computer gets really unresponsive. According to friends, I should enable DMA on this PC, which I tried, but XP refuses to reset the burner’s transfer mode to DMA, but PIO mode. (Running Windows XP Pro SP1). I tried switching back and forth between normal and ATA-100 cables (the only thing that I changed during the entire time of using the burner, but to no avail). Anyone has any ideas on how else can I enable DMA transfer on the burner? It’s disheartening to see the computer freeze for long bouts of time while burning. I’ve already tried enabling DMA under Device Manager, Primary IDE Channel (burner’s a Primary Slave), by selecting DMA if available transfer mode, but it still goes to PIO mode regardless.
Thanks in advance for your time.
