DMA problem...

hey,

i can't enable DMA on my pioneer DVD drive. I have it on the same cable as one of my harddrives, and the harddrive only runs in DMA1 mode (it is a ata-100 disk)

Look at the screenshot i attached.


can anyone help??

it is actually the harddrive that is the problem, but i've heard that it can't run in ultra dma mode if it is on a cable with a PIO device...

I know it is possible to run the DVD-player in DMA mode, because i've done it before.

Try switching them around, set it up as the slave, etc. Set it up with a different IDE device... that sort of thing.

tried all jumper settings, and i'm running the harddrive as single, but still only PIO mode.

I even downloaded a IBM harddrive utillity dos program, and changed the drive to Ultra DMA mode 5 - and it told me that it was done successfully. (the HD powered off and on)



i think this is the reason why I always dropped frames when capturing video from TV...

The only thing I can think to suggest is to try and get the drives (2 isn't it?) working on the Raid controller side. Hook them back up to that and go into your raid bios and fiddle around. I don't have a clue what the problem could be.

I'm not going to start trying that RAID thing again. I have realized that it does NOT work. I think it must be the hardware.

I have 3 HD's and one DVD-ROM.

disk 1 and 2 runs on IDE1 (Ultra DMA mode 3) and workes fine.
disk 3 and DVD runs on IDE2 as the screenshot shows.

IDE3 and IDE4 is the blue ATA-100 slots - but i can't use them.

yes, but i figured out that my DVD-drive works fine, it is the HD that runs in PIO mode...

Silly question?

Can you tell me how did you get (always there?) the "advanced tab" in the secondary IDE Properties. I do not have that, using XP pro.

i always have the advanced tab - might be related to the mainboard.



Still no help to get?

Here's the deal right now:

I have a IBM Harddrive that only runs in PIO mode. I've tried all different jumper settings, i've tried all combinations possible. (single as IDE1/IDE2/IDE3, master IDE1/2/3, slave IDE1/2/3 etc.)
what's the difference between the jumper settings on IBM drives? 15pin, 16pin, 2GB clip, auto spin disable

I'm 50 percent sure that this drive has been in DMA mode before...


please...............................................................

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
