I try to explain it point by point because of my *$&%$% english :>
P4 2.8 Ghz
Corsair TWINX1024 PC3200LL
MSI Geforce FX5900
PX - 708A, IDE1: Master, (Jumper is set to Master), 40 Pin Cable
2x 120GB Seagate S ATA ST3120026AS @ RAID 0 (ICH5R Onboard Controller)
PX Firmware 1.07
Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility V5.02.100
I can only set UDMA2 for my Plextor 708A via Plextools Professional v. 2.15.
After enabling it from Pio Mode to UDMA2 Mode, my system crashes and doesn’t react to anything, the only thing i can do is to eject the cd or wait 5 minutes and wait that windows will change the Transfer Mode from UDMA2 to Pio Mode automatically.
If Im using Pio Mode the CPU Usage will rise up to 50% and more while im burning a normal CDR, and it will take up to 10 minutes @40x to burn a normal Data 700MB CD, (DVD @ 4x around 40 minutes).
The Plextools Read and Write Transfer Rate Test says that my recorder has only an average of 20x (reading&writing)
