Sony dru-510a update



i just got the dru-510a and it already has d firmware and was wanting to update to f but reading the website you need to disable dma on the drive. well i cant the option is not available. i checked under the drive itself and the promise card it is on and i cant find it. i was wondering if i can go ahead and flash or not. any help is appreciated. i am using xp home


It might be under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers…

Chances are that the flash will work anyways, but disabling DMA is best.


i checked under that also it wasnt listed either


Under device manager, right click on the IDE controller the device is plugged into and select advanced settings - change to pio.

Hope this helps.
