Okay, I have an older system(not to old though) anyway my 40gig drive died so I purchased a 160gig WD drive from best buy installed Windows XP and my system has never run slower! I wandering if it is some...


I suspect a DMA issue here.
Check in the BIOS that you have automatic device recognition turned on.
Check that DMA is enabled while you are in there.
Make sure you are using an 80 way cable, 40 way can be way slower.
Check the extended settings on the relevant ide controller in the Device Manager.
Maybe divide the drive into smaller partitions will help to, Windows can spend time exploring the whole paddock otherwise.

How do you change dma for xp to default


1.
Open Device Manager.
2.
Double-click IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers to display the list of controllers and channels.
3.
Right-click the icon for the channel to which the device is connected, select Properties, and then click the Advanced Settings tab.
4.
In the Current Transfer Mode drop-down box, select DMA if Available if the current setting is "PIO Only."
If the drop-down box already shows "DMA if Available" but the current transfer mode is PIO, then the user must toggle the settings. That is:
• Change the selection from "DMA if available" to PIO only, and click OK.
• Then repeat the steps above to change the selection to DMA if Available.

DMA drive error.


Its a problem with the windows dma seting for drives. In "device manager", open properties for ur drive and your interface like IDE/ATA controller. There, you can check and change DMA Settings.

Allow max DMA. Do not disable DMA.

U can also check DMA setting on BIOS if ur bios supports it.

DMA is Direct Memory Access : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_memory_access

It should be automatically enabled, but if it is not there will be no damage. DMA simply speeds up access.

Want to know applications of DMA in real time


Good Morning
IT it a little "brige" to some sound aplications or routing signal to Printers or Sound Cards, but not for Network. Not good sometimes for Sound Cards, but you can play sometimes with settings and see what happend, you always can go back the DMA at previuos state, or simple, disable.

Audio and video track are not in sync


I guess that your CDROM Device doesn't have DMA (Direct Memory Access) enabled.

From the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article:

To enable DMA mode using the Device Manager

1.

Open Device Manager.

2.

Double-click IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers to display the list of controllers and channels.

3.

Right-click the icon for the channel to which the device is connected, select Properties, and then click the Advanced Settings tab.

4.

In the Current Transfer Mode drop-down box, select DMA if Available if the current setting is "PIO Only."
If the drop-down box already shows "DMA if Available" but the current transfer mode is PIO, then the user must toggle the settings. That is:

Change the selection from "DMA if available" to PIO only, and click OK.

Then repeat the steps above to change the selection to DMA if Available.
