I have a Liteon Dvd rom and and a tdk cd burner. Per the manufacturer instructions the tdk is the master and the dvd is the slave. When I had windows me they both ran as an ultra dma device with no problems, but now with windows xp they are set to pio mode only and I cant get it to change, even though I have repeatedly set them to "ultra dma if available". So now my 32x burner is not burning well, since it cant keep up with my hard drive, which is an 80 gig WD that run at ultra dma 5. How can I get these devices to be set with dma on where they will stay? I am starting to get really hacked off with xp pro, while my computer crashes a lot less than with me, xp does not seem to be cd burner friendly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
