Help!
Gremlins are making fun of me.
My CD recorder Plextor 4824 can't install in DMA mode! Reason - Unknown.
After the initial install of XP-home everything was OK. CD recorder was in
DMA mode. A few days ago I added one "dieing" hard disk MAXTOR (run away
from this already died brand) as slave disk. Just to extract the
information. This poor HDD Maxtor was running in PIO mode. SLOW like a
snail. Yesterday I removed the HDD and buried it.
And now the CD recorder is in PIO mode! Can't record a single CD! And I
can't force XP to install it in DMA mode!
Please advice. How to force DMA mode for a device on IDE Channel?
Here is the current configuration:
Primary IDE channel - Master disk IBM in DMA mode
Primary IDE channel - Slave disk - none
Secondary IDE channel - Master disk - PLEXTOR in PIO mode
Secondary IDE channel - Slave disk - DVD-ROM Pioneer in DMA mode

By the way, I tried to install Plextor as a single device on the secondary
IDE channel, but it still installs in PIO mode.
This XP is too automatic for me ;-(
