    just checked and my Maxtor 80 GB is running at UDMA mode 5 in the Device manager. I am running Windows XP with SP 1a and also I believe I have SP2 as well in there.

    VIA Hyperion 4.46 drivers.

    Mentioned earlier: " 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?"

    Start - RUN - regedit
    right click on Hkey-local machine-software and right click and make sure that you have "Permissions" enabeled to literally change things. You can do the same thing to hardware as well in the registry. perhaps that might help, and won't hurt anything.

    I have a question though I'm not sure if this is the place to ask it but anyway. I recently had windows(98SE) re-installed on my computer. I had a problem with my CD drives. One of them would not work with certain disks(it would just keep spinning up and down) and the other one couldn't install things properly(the disk would stop spinning during the installation and it wouldn't finish). When I got my computer back neither of those problems seemed to be there(I installed a few games with the second drive and had no problems). I had to update the 4in1 drivers because the performance in games was awful. When I did update them(to the latest version) the game performance was fine but the issues with the CD drives returned.
    Do you have any idea how I might fix this problem? I was thinking maybe older versions of the drivers would work but I tried the ones recommended for Win98SE and that didn't change anything. Should I try even older versions or is there a different answer to the problem?

    My specs:
    AMD Athlon 1.7ghz
    GeForce4 Ti 4600(w/ latest drivers)
    256 SDRAM
    Win98SE
    DirectX 9.0b

    Well I have to say this guide at the TweakTown forums is the best one out there. Anyways seems like the guide needs another update. Here is for those who can't wait.

    Update! VIA Hyperion 4in1 v4.49 Released! -08/20/03

    I just installed these today and things are working great thus far. Here are the version numbers as follows.

    Windows XP

    VIA Registry (INF) Driver
    4in1Version 4.49
    Viamach 1.90b

    VIA Bus Master IDE Controller
    10/18/2001
    5.1.2600.120

    VIA CPU to AGP Controller
    7/2/2003
    5.1.0.3442

    As for the "CPU to PCI Bridge", I believe they renamed it in the driver selection menu. Now it seems they changed it to "VIA Standard Host Bridge"

    VIA Standard Host Bridge
    8/16/2001
    5.1.0.190

    VIA Standard PCI to ISA Bridge
    8/16/2001
    5.1.0.190

    Thanks. For everyone installing the 4.49s make sure you use the official version from VIA Arena, and not the earlier FTP version which was reported widely on the net. The official file has the version number 4.49vp2. The earlier version will cause problems such as identifying your IDE drives as SCSI etc.

    The FAQ has also been updated for the latest version.

    I tryed install the latest via 4in1 drivers but they kept crashing my PC while installing. I tryed v4.49 and 4.48 they both crashed while installing or on rebooting up, so i had to settle with v4.45 drivers. I have:-

    Abit KR7A Raid motherboard
    AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1700+
    512 MB memory ddr266
    Gainward geForce 4 Ti4200 golden sample x4 AGP
    two IBM GXP120 60Gigabyte hardrives to form raid 0
    creative audigy2 sound card platinium

    so could anybody advise me on which version of 4in1 drivers
    would be best??? plz

    Thank you

    If you're fine with the 4.45 version keep it. No need to update if you're having problems.

    Hi all,

    I have a similar problem to what was mentioned in an earlier reply in that my udma5 hdd only shows as udma4 in device manager in XP pro.

    I did a few benchmarks in sandra pro 2k3 and my drive is running at around 8mb p/s... (pitiful... around ata33 speed)

    Should be around 20mb p/s if it was on udma5

    here's my config:
    Gigabyte GA-6vtxe-a / PIII 1ghz / via 694 chipset / 256mb 133 sdram
    Quantum Fireball ex 20gb udma5 hdd on pri master
    LG 50x udma2 cdrom on secondary master
    ATI radeon 9000 pro

    Here's what I've tried so far:
    Clean install of xp pro from scratch - dm shows udma4
    Installed sp1a - dm shows udma4
    Installed hyperion 4.49vp2 - dm shows udma4
    replaced 80pin cable - no change
    confirmed bios is most recent available (ami p9) for this board
    confirmed all bios settings are correct

    changed hdd to pio mode only (as mentioned in another forum) and sandra reports it as udma5, however benchmark showed around 2.8mb p/s ... soon changed that back

    I should note that the bios shows the hdd as being udma5 at boot time.

    has anyone been able to find a fix for this? I've seen the issue mentioned in a few other forums but nobody has a fix for it...

    any help would be greatly appreciated, not just by me but by a lot of people with this issue.

    :( VIA convieniently left out wich would be the best driver set for WinME. Anyone know if the better performing set for WinMe is 4.49 or 4.35?

    Whatever goes for Win98 goes for WinME too, there's no difference. Use 4.35.
