Sony 510A problem - please help

Just got one of the above drives and it doesn’t work properly in DMA mode - only in PIO mode.

Has anyone come across a solution for this? I have another DVD drive on same IDE but Sony is on master - is this the problem?

I have tried searching around here and on web, but can’t find any info.

Please help! Thanks alot.

Try using the drive as slave from your best Hard Disk.

In my motherboard this was the only solucion (Asus A7N8xDeluxe)

Found it did not like IAA on intel mobo uninstalled iaa and dma worked o.k. Also found better writing speed with drive as slave on secondary ide.
