Please help…my brand new LG GSA 4160B DVD-RAM does not work in DAM mode at all! It does not run any program and can barely read a CD. It works under “POI only”, but you know it’s not the optimized setting.
See my system detailsâ€¦
Windows XP Pro SP2
Master: 80G HHD, UltraDMA 6
Slave: 40G HHD, UltraDMA 5
The 2 hard disks are connected by using an 80-pin cable, the master is connected to the end connector and the slave is in the middle. Hard disks seem to work fine.
Master: LG GSA 4160B DVD-RAM, POI only
Salve: Creative 52X CD-ROM, Multi-Word DMA Mode 2
The 2 CD-ROMs are connected by using a 40-pin cable, the master is in the end connector and the slave is in the middle (is this the correct setting? Should I change it to an 80-pin cable? or swap the end and middle connectors?)
Iâ€™ve tried to uninstall the secondary IDE channel and reboot the computer, everything was re-installed automatically after re-boot, and the LG DVD-RAM will be configured as UltraDMA mode 4 by windows, but the device actually does not work in this mode, and I have to manually change it to â€œPOI Onlyâ€ in order to get it work.
How do I get this LG GSA 4160B DVD-RAM work under UltraDMA mode 4? Please help, thanks!
