    i have tried several things to get this burner to read as dma but it just wont do it
    its an artec 48x12x48x. I have removed and reinstalled the drive, i have done a regedit, i have purchased a new ide cable, i have swapped from primary to slave, and back again, i have mounted it with no other drive, and still no luck, still comes up as pio mode, i have windows XP pro.

    Check System Properties
    1. Control Panel
    2. System Devices
    3. Hardware
    4. Device Manager
    5. IDE ATA/ATAPI Devices
    6. Primary IDE CHannel --> Properties
    7. Advanced --> Enable "DMA If Possible" for both
    8. Secondary IDE CHannel --> Properties
    9. Advanced --> Enable "DMA If Possible" for both
    10. Reboot

    If the DMA is still off:

    1. Go into your BIOS and somewhere under ADVANCED or something there will be an option to enable DMA.

    tried that also. this is the reason i quit using this burner before, i figured it was a hardware failure, it underruns over 16x when burning. started off fine but it crapped out after awhile. dont know what caused it but from my limited knowledge im out of ideas on fixing this issue.

    oh that was u too eh? lol i go through so many posts (replying and reading) i dunno who is who anymore! :)

    1. When you boot up does it show your burner as being PIO Mode 4? (or whatever) or does it say you are running DMA Mode 2? If it says PIO then that definitely means the problem is in the BIOS
    2. Is the drive correctly detected under windows?

    BTW, in PIO the highest you can reliably burn without buffer underrun protection is like 8x...
