What else could be wrong? I’ve got XP pro sp1, Asus P4c800 Deluxe. I’ve got the Plextor combo drive as the secondary master. The CD drive once worked in DMA before I formatted the hard drive and reinstalled the OS.
Only change I made in the configuration of the hardware was to make the SATA raid from the promise controller the boot hard drive.
Iâ€™ve made sure that in device manager the controller the CD drive is attached to is set to use DMA if available. If tried toggling this setting as listing on a Microsoftâ€™s site. But in Device manager is still shows it is using PIO. The BIOS shows DMA2 for that drive.
