I have been trying to get DMA enabled on my I/O magic DVDRW1008 drive. I am using 0159 firmware which I just upgraded. I have contacted I/O magic and they have had me delete and reinstall the drives and both channels. I also went into the Regedit and did some things they told me to there. It still says DMA is off. I went into the BIOS but saw no option to adjust it there.
OS: Windows XP SP2
Dell Intel P IV
I have also gone to windows and tried all of their suggestions. Does anyone know...does DMA mode exist in this drive? It seems to me this thing is junk! I have seen other threads with people in the same boat, but I have tried everything I could find. Does anyone have any words of wisdom or can you recommend a drive that will actually work!
I have about 15 coasters now from trying different things and trying to write. The write process always fails.
Also, I only have 3 channels on my motherboard, so I can't put the burner on its own. I have deleted the master and slave in the regedit and that doesnt work either.
Thanks for the help....I am extremely frustrated...this has been going on for weeks.
