what's "pci.ids" suppose to be?
Are you talking about a (unknown to me) library? Or are is this refering to a physical device? Is an application you're trying to install asking for this?
It's quite unclear.

I see.
This is obliviously something build into the kernel, you might want to get the very latest kernel, I doubt you can only get this single file.

But you probably don't need this to activate DMA. As long as your ide chipset (on the board, not on the drive) is supported by your kernel, you could use hdparm to set this on.
Try :
Code:
hdparm -d1 /dev/hdX
(where X is your drive letter)

your dvd is /dev/sda4 ??

This is... odd? Dvd don't have partitions, I doubt this is your drive, are you sure?
In any case, this is a SCSI dvd, right? You can't set DMA with hdparm on scsi device... however, DMA is the default communication for SCSI devices, your SCSI adapter probably already use it.
Or... is this some kind of emulated SCSI? Like SATA or just weird (ATAPI) ide-emulation ?

hummm this is strange, your dvd is reporting to be udma2 capable and dma seems active on the bus but you can't set the flag...
Herm... what did you read about pci.ids before? Was this refering to your exact model of dvd, or was it some generic info?

( btw, this is a niiiice laptop indeed )
