Here you go:

thanks for the fast reply,
primary ide channel,current transer mode is (ultra dma mode 5).secondry ide channel,current transer mode is still pio mode
transer mode (dma if available)
reset it twice and restarted pc still in pio mode. :o

You can try uninstalling the secondary ide channel. Then reboot. This will force the operating system to reinstall the channel, and hopefully come up in dma mode.

Do NOT uninstall the primary ide channel—it is the one with your hard drive and your operating system.
