I’m relatively new at messing with this stuff, but I’ve got a major problem with the Memorex 48X24X48X CD-RW (rebadged Lite-On) I’ve installed. It wouldn’t work at all with a “This device cannot start Code 10” error in Device Manager.
After some Internet research, I changed the mode on the Secondary Master IDE (where the Memorex is) from DMA to PIO. Now, the drive works but is still not recognized by Windows XP as a CD-RW. I can write to it from Nero, but at much lower speeds that it should (average of 16X). The drive is supposed to have DMA and Ultra DMA support. I’ve checked cables, uninstalled and reinstalled it, etc. to no avail. It only seems to work under PIO.
Please help with any suggestions to get the DMA functionality working! Thanks in advance for your help!
