I am not familiar with these logs but this is telling you that you are not in DMA mode but are in fact in PIO Mode.

Hi again Blossman,

Please see my initial response to your query…posts #7 & 8, maybe you didn’t see it the first time?
No point in trying the reset DMA button in Fab as this did not work for you.
I suspect you’ll have to run the VBScript file found in my sig:
[B]More DMA Help[/B]
Please read the article containing the link for the flie.
It’s very informative and will take a lot of the mystery out of this stuff…

I run the VBScript and it brought my read time down to 37min on a movie that had originally took 1hr 10min. :bow: Thanks for the info. :clap:

Glad to hear things are better… :iagree:
