I bought a 15.0GB EIDE ULTRA-ATA/66 3.5LP INT7200RPM 2MB FIREBALL PLUS LM.

I have a Biostar M6TLC motherboard....its old...bought it in 1998 but it supports Ultra DMA/33 Bus Master Mode

I have WIN98 SE

My original drive crapped out so I bought the drive listed above and installed it in my computer. I used the original cabels and the thing seems to be working fine

BUT

I want to actvate DMA because i want to transfer digital video without dropping frames. The Intel Bus Mastering drivers are loaded and teh DMA box is there in the device manager but it will not stay checked.

WHY??

Do I need a new Mainboard....where is a good place to buy one??

Thanks for your help

-Jim
