I have a giga-byte ga-7dxr ddr m/b plextor 12/10/32 cdrw,samsung 12x dvdrom and a western digital 40gig hd.the problem is the bios detects the cdrw and the dvd as pio4 when they should be udma33 or better. I have checked all cableing jumpers etc,bios settings, I can find no setting in bios to change pio mode to udma.All drives are on seperate ide channels as the m/b has 4 ide connectors, 2 normal and 2 raid.The cdrw is on ide1 the dvd is ide2 and the hd is ide3 as this uses the ultra100 bios.I have tried swapping and changing all sorts of different combinations and still the cdrw and dvd show up as pio4.Please somebody help as it is driving me crazy.

I have a GA-7 DX motherboard and a 16x toshiba DVD, with a promise Ultra ATA 100 Raid controller and 4 Fireball AS 60 GB drives. Nowhere in the bios settings is there any mention of what mode the DVD is running in. Are you seeing something I'm not?

When your pc boots up just before windows kicks in you should see a black screen with white type showing all the devices on the ide channels and what modes they are using.

The DVD shows up, but not what mode it's in. Different bios maybe...
