    I just installed a new CD Burner. Acer 24x10x40 and was wondering if anyone could help me. The burner said that it woud not be as fast as it could be unless I went to device manager and checked the DMA tab in the properties part. I can't get that to show with windows XP. What can I do to make sure that my cdrw and dvd player are running max performance.
    Thanks

    Thanks Barbarian

    That is where it was. I had one set to DMA and one was not. Thanks for all the help.
