Not likely a dma, but but a windows issue. Go the operating panel and then to system and remove all drivers for the device. On re-booting, it will locate a driver and correct the situation. Have the driver disk ready if it asks for it.

DMA driver error CRC error G sonyDVD RW AD 72605


CRC errors can occur due to many different types of problems. Some of these problems are:
  1. Damage to file during the transmission process.
  2. A problem occurred when the file was being sent.
  3. Problems with the device that is accessing or opening the file.
  4. Problems with the file itself.
Resolving CRC Errors
Let's now have a look at the methods you can use to resolve some of the common CRC errors on your Windows system.
Fixing Transmission Problems with Network and Modem
You may encounter CRC errors while trying to transmit files over a network or a modem connection if there are problems with the connection you are using or there are data collisions occurring during the transmission due to heavy traffic.
Additionally, you may receive CRC errors if you are not transmitting your file in a format that is compatible with the protocol being used for transmission. For instance, if you are sending a text file through an FTP or Telnet session, it must be sent in Text mode or as an ASCII file. Non-text files, however, must be transmitted as binary files.
To resolve these problems, you can try the following:
  • Ensure that there are no problems with your network or modem connection.
  • Try to retransmit the file.
  • Try sending the file using some other method or connection.
  • Ensure that the file was sent using the correct format.

Upgrading hdd in hp ze4805us to 250GB WD -- Won't Boot


since your bios says theirs a limit to HDD capacity you may want to try making the 250GB disk into 2 smaller partitions. Then extract your OS image to the first partition.

Problem with LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S ATA Device


There is a whole bunch of helpful stuff at http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/196090-32-lite-dvdrw-160p6s-burning-problems
Seems that the drive may overheat, and will need replacement if in warranty. Some advice given: get another type drive. Also, check the device manager and make sure it's running in DMA mode and not PIO mode. If you have an nForceX mobo and using the SW IDE driver, reinstall with the normal IDE driver and try again. In device manager, check under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Right-click and select properties on the IDE Channel your DVD recorder is attached to. Transfer mode should be set to "DMA if available". Current transfer mode should be "Ultra DMA Mode 4". If it says Mode 2: Your drive may be experiencing problems which are causing windows to drop its speed. There is a support article with a fix. To surmize:

After the Windows IDE/ATAPI Port driver (Atapi.sys) receives a cumulative total of six time-out or cyclical redundancy check (CRC) errors, the driver reduces the communications speed (the transfer mode) from the highest Direct Memory Access (DMA) mode to lower DMA modes in steps. If the driver continues to receive time-out or CRC errors, the driver eventually reduces the transfer mode to the slowest mode (PIO mode).

If you have dropped from DMA mode 4 to DMA mode 2, and you have a spare ribbon cable, you may want to try swapping it out. Also, if there is another device on the same channel as the DVD drive, try disconnecting it.

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.
