    What is the make and model of drive that asks to have DMA disabled?

    I know this is the Windows XP forum but what is the version of windows that you are using?

    Go to START then RUN and type in devmgmt.msc and hit ENTER, Device Manager will open. Look for IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers, click on the + sign next to it. Double click on Secondary IDE Channel, then go to the Advanced Settings tab and change the Transfer Mode to PIO only.
