Managed to get a NEC 3540a bought for me yesterday and have started making sure that its all configured to go properly. I was checking through Device manager and noticed the folowing (as shown by the attached screenshot). My hard disc on my primary channel is at DMA5 whilst the NEC is only at DMA2.
Now, I'm not really sure if that is what it should be. Can anyone tell me if this will impact the drive performance at all, maybe something to do with the rate of data transfer between the board and the DVD drive? Or is this fine???
Just wanted to ask
