My Maxtor 80GB harddisk is in PIO mode now, how can I set to DMA mode?
Hit the Windows Key + Pause/Break which will open up System Properties. Alternatively, Right-Click my Computer, go to Properties, which brings up the same menu
Click the Hardware Tab, then Device Manager.
Double-click on "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" to expand the node.
Right click on Primary IDE Controller, select Properties
Click on Advanced Settings.
For Transfer Mode, ensure it is set to DMA if available.
Reboot when done
It's working, thank a lot for your reply.
Glad it worked
