    I'm having a difficult time finding the location I can enable dma for my hard drive. If anyone has any help, let me know. Although it should be able to be left unsaid, I'm using XP

    just ope up the control panel, then system, then hardware, then device manager. Look for ide/atapi controllers. expand it. open up each channel and make sure use DMA if availible is enabled

    Thanks, for some reason I had it in my head that it was under my hard drive settings instead of controller.
