Optimize IDE disks.

Enable Direct Memory Access (DMA) to improve the transfer rate of IDE disks and prevent stuttered audio playback in Windows 2000, XP, Me, or 98SE. Windows XP enables DMA by default on most IDE devices. For more information, visit the Microsoft Web site at www.microsoft.com/hwdev/tech/storage/IDE-DMA.asp.

To enable DMA in Windows 2000 and XP:
1. Log in to Windows with administrator access.
2. Right-click My Computer, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
3. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
4. Click the plus sign (+) beside IDE Controllers.
5. Right-click the IDE disk, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
6. Click the Advanced Settings tab, and select DMA If Available For Transfer Mode.
7. Click OK to the alert about enabling DMA.
8. Click the plus sign beside CD-ROM Drives.
8. Right-click the CD-ROM drive, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
10. Click the Settings tab, and select Enable DMA. (This option won't appear if the CD-ROM drive isn't connected to the IDE chain.)


To enable DMA in Windows Me and 98SE:
1. Right-click My Computer, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
2. Click the Device Manager tab, and then click Device Manager.
3. Click the plus sign (+) beside Hardware Controllers.
4. Right-click the IDE disk, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
5. Click the Settings tab, and select Enable DMA.
6. Click OK to the alert about enabling DMA.
7. Click the plus sign beside CD-ROM.
8. Right-click the CD-ROM drive, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
9. Click the Settings tab, and select Enable DMA. (This option won't appear if the CD-ROM drive is not connected to the IDE chain.)
