sure that the BIOS has DMA enabled for hda and hdc?-
No , actually I'm not. I went to the BIOS but couldn't find it.
What mobo or BIOS do you have there?
A lot of times you'll find it on the first screen or the first option on
that screen. If the mobo is, I would guess, 3 years old or newer and
auto detect is used then DMA is enabled, UDMA if the cable is 40pin x
OK. Here are my results so far.
When I reboot now and do a hdparm /dev/hda I get result: DMA = 1 (on).
However what I really want is to have /dev/dvd DMA =1 (on). I still have to
enable this manually every time I reboot.
Thanks again for all the help.
