I take it this is normal on W/7 No DMA or PIO mode mentioned in advanced when checking Ide Atapi controllers.

On mine, W7 home premium, there is an option to select DMA mode on the controllers that are in use.

Ata channel 0 and Ata channel 1 is what I have got and no mention of DMA or PIO using W/7 64 bit.
Just says devices are working ok in the advanced settings.
So not sure if my set up maybe different from yours.

If you've got SATA drives then there is no option so it won't (can't) be shown.

AMD SATA controller it says.
Thanks for the info I was having a few problems with my computer so thought that that was the problem but obviously not.
Ok will class as resolved.
