How do I enable DMA mode?

  Border View 15:30 24 Dec 2003

To try and get my Power DVD to work properly a system diagnostic is telling me To install the IDE or bus master driver that comes with your motherboard and enable the DMA mode for accessing your DVD-Rom. I'm sure that the IDE or bus master driver is installed (because I've used Power DVD in the past)

So, please, where do I go to enable the DMA mode.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thank you for responding.

After over 1200 visits to this web site I should have mentioned that I am running Windows 98SE and have a Samsung CD-RW/DVD combo.

I've been into Device manager and can't find any reference to DVD only CD-RW.

Am off to have a look at that site johnnytub.

Any more suggestions please.

Thanks fellas. I got as far as putting a black spot in the DMA box but then got the message or words to the effect that enabling this device could have serious consequences for my hardware. Contact your Hardware Vendor. So I didnt enable it and will now send an e-mail to Evesham.

Many thanks for your help. Now that I've found out how to enable DMA, even though I dare not, I shall put a green tick for resolved.

A happy and healthy Christmas and New Year to you all.
