On a VAIO RB57GY [Costco special] no longer available
[http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8810889150&ssPageName=MERC_VIC_RSCC_Pr4_PcY_BID_Stores_IT](Sony Vaio RB57GY example)
I replaced the Sony Reader and "Sony"Writer which was a Sony firmwared Pio110, with TWO Benq1650s. I set the PrimaryIDE interface to DMA if available and it stays at or reverts back to PIO all the time.
I have tried all the great suggestions on the following two pages, I am not a noob.
Any thoughts on why the Benq are just not being read right, whether the VAIO is just so locked down that they are not recognizing the Benq. The bios on the VAIO is also no help, again very minimal settings.
Is there a setting I am missing to force it all the time to DMA?
Thanks in advance for your help
