need computer help! me-> :( now
please forgive me if i say somehting wrong, i will explain as best as i can:
ok today i got a new tower, the thermaltake Xaser III V2420 AU so i could finally add an extra HD and DVD burner thats been chillin in the wrapper for a while. My problem is the DVD burner slows my comp down to the point of making it reboot itself, and im pretty sure its cuz its set for UDMA 2 (it says that on bootup while all other IDE devices are at "5" ), i know raising that number was the fix for my cd r/rw burner which at first took 18 mins to burn a cd at a low udma number to 3.5 minutes when at "udma 5". The dvd burner is attached to a IDE on a ATA contoller card and not on the MB so i cant seem to change to udma settings. The manual for the ATA card doesnt say how to access the bios. am i on the right track?
the dvd burner is a LITEON DVD+/-R/+/-RW 4X
the ATA controller is a PROMISE Ultra ATA/133 (4 device controller)
im running on a Abit MB with a 1.4 Athlon and 768 Mb DDR
any sugguestions please! thank you!
