    search the forum... there are a couple of topics already discussing that... anyway, clean and simple.. if the bios recognizes it as a udma drive, then: control panel / system / hardware / device manager / IDE ATA/ATAPI , choose the channel in which the device is plugged, properties / adv. settings / DMA if available, apply.
