Sony instructions: "When using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, log on to Windows as the computer administrator or as a user with administrator access privileges.
Before executing firmware update, uninstall any packet writing software, such as [DLA], [DirectCD], [B's CLiP] etc, from the PC.
If you are using the DRU-710A, disable [DMA setting] in Windows before executing firmware update."
As per instruction, this is what I have in settings without changing anything.
Transfer Mode: PIO Only
Current Transfer Mode: PIO Mode
Transfer Mode: DMA if available
Current Transfer Mode: Ultra DMA Mode 2
My question now is which one should I change to disable DMA before applying firmware from Sony? Device 0 or Device 1? Or should I let that stay as it is.
Please help as I REALLY do not understand all this and want to fix it properly.
Again thanking you in advance.
PS. What does enabling DMA do?? Does it help the burner's performance??
