    :bounce2:
    I have installed the Miniport Driver in XP -- I know of no problems caused by having it on the system. More importantly, it seems to have stopped XP from regularly downgrading my CD burner from UDMA Mode 2 to PIO Mode.

    Comments?

    You haven't mentioned what OS you're using, nor what type of hard drive setup you have (SCSI, RAID etc.).

    The vast majority of people will have problems if they install the miniport drivers, and I've personally experience it myself.

    I don't see the need to install them if your system works fine with the Hyperions, and if you do suffer from the symptons I've described, uninstall them.

    I have the same problem with my DVD drive, unfortunately the Hyperions didn't fix it for me and WinXP won't let me change modes manually. :(
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    You're certain everything is set correctly in the BIOS? Also, how did you install the Hyperions, not using compatibility mode I hope :)

    Finally, have you checked to make sure all the components of the Hyperions have been updated to the latest versions, and if not, manually updated them?

    Let me know with some more details and we'll work it out.

    I have the most current via hyperion drivers. I think I want to go back and use my previous hyperion drivers that I had just before these latest ones. Will I have to uninstall the latest version before I install the earlier ones? Or can I just install the earlier ones "over" the newer ones? Thanks.

    Try running the older ones, but most likely you'll have to unzip the package, and manually install the older drivers for each device (instructions in the guide).

    Hi, my drive is UDMA 5, but Windows XP uses UDMA-4. My question is, how could I fix the problem?

    The cable is ATA100, also the drive. I had checked them in another machine runing XP, so I guess is something related with Windows and VIA (the chipset).

    I tried differents things, change to PIO, then restore to DMA, something is that when it is in PIO mode, Sandra "says" that the current mode is UDMA-5!!?? Of course when it returns to DMA, Sandra detects UDMA-4, mmmm

    Additional info:

    I have applied your guide Formax to Relax:thumb:
    Sandra 2003 = 23139kb/s
    MB: Gigabyte 6VTX
    Chipset: VIA Technologies Inc VT82C694X Apollo Pro 133A System
    OS: WinXP Pro SP1
    Hyperion: 4.46
    ViaBusMasterIDE: 5.1.2600.120 18/10/2001
    HardDrive: Maxtor Model 4D040K2 (5400 RPM)

    P.S. Compared with the results in Sandra is fast as a ATA100 5400RPM, so I have nothing to worry about?

    If you're drive is running as fast as ATA100 should be then don't worry, but check to make sure your hard drive is the master on the primary channel for best speed. Check the back of the drive to make sure the switches are set for MASTER.

    Other than that it sounds very odd for Sandra to detect UDMA5 when in PIO mode. The only thing you can do is check your BIOS settings once more and make sure SMART is enabled as well.

    Other than that, don't sweat it if the speed is there.
