Start by making sure that you don’t’ have Sonic DLA or INCD installed on your pc. Then, go into device manager, and check your primary and secondary ide’s to ensure that you have DMA enabled and the drives should show as UDMA, or UDMA2, etc… IF not, remove them and reboot, letting windows autodetect the drivers for the devices.
