32-bit Data Transfer

Hi guys,

I notice that when I enter BIOS, there is this option whether to enable or disable 32-bit Data Transfer for the hard disk drive. What is this actually and should it or should it not be enabled?

the 32 bit in the first place is a mis-nomer...

it is actually 2 16-bit reads being combined into a single 32-bit chunk for transfer to put it simply...

anyways... it should be left on unless you are running winNT 4.0 or some such w/o service pack 2...

apparently there were some data corruption problems that were rectified by turning it off...

assuming that you are using win XP I would say leave it on :)

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
