I was just wondering what people’s opinions were on this software/driver. It’s supposed to be a better IDE Channel host controller than the one supplied by microsoft. It’s not necessary to install it on all chipsets and all operating systems, mine being one of them with XP Home and the 850E chipset. I installed it anyway, and I did notice a marked improvement in bootup time. I noticed no real difference in my DVD-Rom or CD-RW, but I did notice that where before when DMA was on for the writer and off for the Reader, it was now the other way 'round. It’s not a big deal, I only have a 16/10/40 burner and I don’t think the DMA/PIO thing makes a big difference. I haven’t noticed any problems burning on the fly either, a problem associated with DMA/PIO on the same channel. I guess it’s not a problem if i don’t notice a performance difference, but i really would like to keep my faster bootup time (almost twice as fast!). Comments, suggestions, flame, or help would be greatly appreciated.
