I currently have 3 hard drives and 3 Internal optical drives (2 DVD writers LG GSA 4167B/Plextor PX708A and 1 Yamaha CRW F1E ) hence I installed an IDE controller card (SIL680-Raid). I copy disks using Nero 7 Premium however the card will not allow me to enable DMA for the optical drives. Burning is very slow and often fails!! Nero simply tells me to enable DMA!! I now have the LG running as secondary master and the Yamaha as slave on the motherboard (MSI KT3 Ultra2. This works OK however I really need an IDE controller card that works with optical disks can anyone help me???
