I upgraded my Asus 1608P2S to 110 “Buffalo 8.39” and it worked fine , but yesterday I did a flash to A10XL"1.39" just for Quite Drive utility and it only shows as UDMA Mode 3 !!!
Shouldn’t it be Mode 4 ?
Yes, it should!
What programs show the actual UDMA Mode of the drive ?
Even the BIOS POST when you start up your machine…
Thank you for your replies.
It is shown in windows hardware tab :
I can’t see the POST screen as it is too fast .
Also Nero Info Tool just says : DMA ON
I always knew that there are only : UDMA 2 , UDMA 4 and UDMA 5 and Maxtor HDD Shows as UDMA 6 , where did this UDMA 3 come from ? :a
Thanks - I also can’t see the POST screen for the same reason.
The Hardware Device tab does show it, thanks !
UDMA-3 is UDMA/44. Although this mode is usually not used, maybe there is something wrong with your system preventing the drive from using UDMA/66, so it falls back to UDMA/44
You can stop at the POST by pressing just PAUSE key.
UDMA3? Never seen on a ODD or hdd so far. Weird.
Uninstall the IDE channels and restart.
I reflashed with Baffalo 8.39 and everything back to normal
Maybe QuiteDrive is not worth it after all
Maybe it was not the correct version…
[B]off topic[/B], only for _chef_Â´s eyes.
Another example, no matter what I tried, this BenQ 1620/47L9 still remains at UDMA-3.
I still think it’s not that normal or common…
Correct version of what ? the firmware ?
It was the right version , I think I am gonna try it again and see.
