I am hoping someone can shed some light on this for me!!
I am trying to turn on DMA on my hd, I know the command required to do it but,
It doesnt work!
I have a Maxtor 6L040J2 40Gb 7200 rpm drive.
When I try to activate DMA I get this error message:
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Operation not permitted
and the DMA setting remains off.
My motherboard is a Soltek SL-75DRV4 well capable of handling DMA.
Bios is: Award v6.0
I really want to turn on DMA in the hopes it will increase my 6.7Mb/sec transfer rate!! (which really sucks)
any help would be much appreciated!
ask your mom ask everyone if they have any idea!
