Did you ever figure out the problem? I've got exactly the same problem, using a Fujitsu MPG3307AH-E 30GB 7200RPM drive under Win2K Service Pack 2.

I have the drive setup as "DMA if available" but it's stuck on "PIO Mode 4". It's painfully slow compared to Win98, and processor usage jumps to 100% during any disk access.

I've done EVERYTHING; I've gone thru the MS Knowledge Base, installed the service pack as instructed, and still no luck. I've even tried the registry patches described on a few other websites, but they don't work either.

I'm getting totally fed up with this... Win2K seems to have been a total waste of money for me.


: Win2k recognises them both perfectly, but it uses DMA mode for the OLD drive, and PIO for the new one. So windows boots and runs apps pretty slowly whereas the old drive in dma mode uses NO processor power and copies at 8Mb/sec.

: I can't make windows2000 enable DMA mode for this new drive.
