    DearI am solving this problem like thisFor Windows 95/98/ME: Go to your 'Control Panel --> System --> Device Manager --> CD-ROM' and under your drives 'Properties --> Settings' enable DMA for your devices.For Windows 2000/XP: Go to your 'Control Panel --> Systems --> Hardware --> Device Manager' and double-click on the 'IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers'. Right-click on the 'Primary IDE Channel' and go to 'Properties --> Advanced Settings'. Change ´Transfer Mode´ to 'DMA if available'.Do the same for the secondary IDE channel.

    The DMA mode will be auto enabled if your DVD support it.

    >>Device Manager
    >>IDE ATA/ATAPI cootrollers
    If you connect DVE to Secondary IDE Channel
    Double click Secondary IDE Channel
    Click Advanced Settings
    See Current Transfer Mode
    You will see Ultra DMA Mode 2

    Setting up the burner drive to operate with DMA mode

    In order to verify that your drive works in DMA mode, or to change it to DMA mode, follow these steps.
    Open the hardware setting dialog of Windows. To do this, right-click on 'My computer' and selectProperties.


    Then, choose the 'Hardware' tab and click on 'Device Manager'.


    Each burner drive is controlled by an IDE ATA/ATAPI controller. There are probably two controllers in your computer, each with two devices.
    The drive letter of each burner determines the controller and device responsible for it. The table below can be used to determine the correct controller for your burner drive.

    Drive letter IDE ATA/ATAPI controller Device
    C:\ Primary 0
    D:\ Primary 1
    E:\ Secondary 0
    F:\ Secondary 1
    Look for the 'IDE ATA/ATAPI' controllers icon and expand it by clicking on the (+) sign next to it. Select either the Primary or secondary IDE channel, which controls your burner drive, right click on it and selectProperties.


    Go to the 'Advanced settings' tab, and the device that you want to set (Device 0 or Device 1). The example below shows that drive D:\ works in PIO only mode. You should modify this to 'DMA if available' mode, to let Windows select DMA mode if it is supported by your burner (it usually is).


    Then, click OK. Windows will ask you if you want to reboot, for these settings to take effect. You should allow it.
    After booting up, the burner drive should work much faster and consume much less CPU power.
