I have noticed on my Post screen that my two optical drives, CD-RW and a DVD-RW are only using UDMA 33mhz, how can i speed this up?, My mobo is Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 nForce 4 board, and im using an 80-pin ribbon cable.
I would like at least 66 but preferably 100mhz.

Is it my board, drives or cable that doesnt support the faster speeds?

I don't think you need it any faster, because cd drives don't use more than ATA 33 normally anyway. Only very recently have I noticed the odd ATA 66 drive coming out, (from asus i think).
