hi everyone , in the firmware update theres a read me file on installing etc
Pls note following instructions for update procedure:
Connect drive to secondary IDE channel as Master, use standard UDMA-2 IDE cable
Disconnect all slave hardware from IDE secondary Master
Update in Windows "Safe Mode"
Under Windows 2000 & XP login as administrator
Update without DMA mode, under Windows XP & 2000 in the device manager - "IDE ATA/ ATAPI controllers", you can switch from DMA to PIO mode
Disconnect all external USB/ FireWire devices.
Deactivate virusscanners, active desktop programs and packetwriting agents
why is there a need to change dma to pio ? whats the difference and is it best to leave it pio ?
