If you are using Nero, ahead recommends that DMA is enabled for the rewriter and disabled for the CD/DVD-ROM drive as the Nero software controls its operation.


DMA is enabled/diabled in My Computer>Properties>Device Manager>CD-ROM and then highlighting the drive involved.

Click Properties, choose the Settings table and you will see the DMA check box.

But, as advised by The Sack, it is not a good idea to disable DMA in normal use.
