I have a problem with not being able to select dma/udma, i have at the moment ide1 master=80gig maxtor, slave dvd rom, hard drive is currently on udma mode 5, dvd rom udma mode 2, ide2=ldw-811s master, slave liteon cd rw 522446s(52x24x52) hope thats right. both of these are in pio mode and will not go to dma/udma, i am using the new ide cables eg 80/40 pin which are meant to be better for faster drives (blue/grey/black cables), in the device manger/ide ata/atapi secondary ide advanced setting, both liteon roms are on dma if available but mode pio and no matter what i try whether it be using different ide cables checking the bios, flashing firmware, removing ide ports and rebooting or switching roms round on both ide slots, they will not go to dma/udma mode, can anyone help me on this, i have emailed liteon and got no response whatsoever there totaly useless.
