    Using winXP PRO SP2. I just notice that from the Nero error burn log that the Plextor drive does not have DMA on. In Device Manager, IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, Secondary IDE controllers, under Advance Settings the Transfer Mode is set to DMA if available for Device 0 and Device 1. For Device 0, Current Transfer Mode is PIO Mode while Ultra DMA Mode 2 for Device 1.

    Had in Nero burn log that DMA was on for the drive on Jan21 but now not.
    BEFORE=== Scsi-Device-Map ===
    DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y080L0 atapi Port 0 ID 0 DMA: On
    CdRomPeripheral : PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4824A atapi Port 1 ID 0 DMA: On
    CdRomPeripheral : TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1712 atapi Port 1 ID 1 DMA: On

    AFTER === Scsi-Device-Map ===
    DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y080L0 atapi Port 0 ID 0 DMA: On
    CdRomPeripheral : PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4824A atapi Port 1 ID 0 DMA: Off
    CdRomPeripheral : TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1712 atapi Port 1 ID 1 DMA: On

    What could I do to get DMA for the Current Transfer Mode?

    Thanks, but I just did a System Restore to about a month back and it seems okay now.
