Check Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Hope this help.

: Hiya,

: I don't know if anyone can help me here.

: I have an older udma66 drive (fujitsu 20Gb) as the primary slave, my NEW udma100 (fujitsu 30Gb - nice and fast under win98) drive as the primary master, which windows 2000 boots off.

: 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.

: I've tried all the hints I can find on the net - no joy.

: CAn anyone suggest anything I can do to fix?? PLEASE? :)

: Oh, btw, the BIOS initialises it as udma100 as it should I checked that already!

: Thanks for any help!

: Matt.
