Added: Oops, I’m retarded, I posted this in the wrong forum… my bad.
I just purchased a Pioneer DVR-108… I installed it as the slave on my primary IDE channel.
I updated the firmware to the newest 1.14 release, then set the entire IDE channel on “DMA If Available”… I restarted, and the Master drive, my Yamaha burner, was successfully set to Ultra DMA Mode 2, but the DVD burner is still stuck in PIO Mode!!
Is this a problem? I’ve heard that running in PIO mode causes problems… or is the drive supposed to just run in PIO mode?
I’ll be ever indebted to anyone that can help me…
BTW, I’m running XP with SP2.
Added: Hmm, i’ve been reading a lot about the importance of 80 wire IDE cables? Whats the difference between these and normal IDE cables? I’m just using a rounded Antec cable…
