Didn’t think I was a newbie… but this problem convinces me I am.
Just installed this drive and its doing the same thing the one I replaced it with. Using Nero CD-Speed I get 20x-21x. I have it set as the Master on the secondary IDE, my Hard drive is primary.
The info tool says the DMA is off… would putting that ON make any difference? and HOW do I change that setting? sigh… THere’s something I need to fix because its not the drive… and its driving me nuts. Used blanks from several brands… same result.
system info… Pent III 933mhz WD 80 gig… Windows 2000 pro…
512 Meg ram.
I’m missing some simple thing… I hope.
