I/o error PIO mode and slow burns



Hi, I can’t seem to get my burner to run in DMA mode, or I get an I/O error.

I’ve tried uninstalling the secondary ide channel and rebooting, but the io error remains. I’ve checked my jumper settings, and removed my older plextor cd burner from the cable altogether.

I read somewhere that using an ide-40 cable instead of an ide-80 might be the cause of my problem. Thoughts?


Try finding and using an ide-80 cable (no longer than 50cm).


That worked, thanks.
