Sync data tarnsfer?

What is this option [in the control panel—>system—>cdrom drive(any ide)----->near where you choose DMA or Auto insert notification.?]

All my drives have it disabled.

From this site :

This setting enables a synchronization of data transfers between your drive and your system, which is by default asynchronous.

Basically turn it on if you want more reliable but slower data transfers

what do you use?

For normal IDE harddisks it’s quite useless to turn it on , so it’s off on my pc and only on for the MO drive.
