Hello,

I have a Micropolis 4525A 2.5gb HD, and MATSHITA CD-ROM CR-585 on the same primary IDE channel. I want to know whether either of these should have DMA enabled in the OS. I've looked at www.thetechpage.com and there is no info on whether the drive supports Ultra 33/DMA. Same goes for the CD-ROM drive. Should I or should I not have Windows DMA box checked? Will these drives operate slower if DMA is checked?
