I just learned about this whole DMA and PIO thing yesterday. I’ve just been under this strange impression that it supposed to take DVDs a while to burn, but upon doing a little research I found that it’s supposed to take a fraction of the time.
Mine is taking up to 8 hours to burn a DVD. After researching more I found that the problem is probably that I’m in PIO mode instead of DMA. The Transfer Mode stuck in “PIO Mode” is on the Secondary IDE Channel.
I’ve tried EVERYTHING to try and get it in DMA mode, but it just won’t switch over.
I’m about to shoot the computer.
