  hugh-265156 08:02 23 Jan 2004

hi all,i just purchased and fitted a new sony crx230A writer which i am so far very pleased with,works well up to x52 and reads all my discs where the old drive did not.using xp home and nero6.

i have the new writer set as master on ide2 with my old dvd combo drive as slave to it.on checking device manager i noticed that the dma setting for the new writer is "udma mode2"and the old drive is "udma mode4".what is the difference please?

im guessing mode2 is do i fix.motherboard drivers all up to date.

seems udma mode2 is what the sony drive supports.

i been told that its a rebadged lite on ltr2327s click here also udma mode2.

is this correct?
