    I don't know of a link but from experience if ya software has trouble findin' the burner or the burner doesn't complete a burn or just pops errors up in 99% of cases that I've come across it's been because the burner has been the slave and changin' it to the master position has always cured those probs.

    yeah wiggo is right. i have run into it many times when peeps upgrade their pc's with cdrw's, then they give to me to fix. sometimes you cant even get by the bios w/o probs.

    make sure the bios has dma set to auto or enabled as well, you never know with some mobo's and windows. make sure you have installed the ide drivers for your mobo.

    OK, its gone offtopic from what i originally started but yeah. im not a noob i know how ide channels and things work, the burner is master, hdd on a raid controller, DMA is set to on if possible on primary IDE1 channel and its still setting the current transfer rate to PIO, i know that this burner can do DMA cos it did before i formatted it and i im pretty sure its doing DMA on my linux partion. Running Windows XP SP1 and in the BIOS DMA is set to auto, not disabled. if anyone needs me to be more clear i will post again

    well ya shudda posted that in the beginning. on a 40 pin cable , you should get dma mode 2.
    what is left? you said the bios is set ok so the only thing left is the ide drivers that could be causing it (assuming no hardware burps). have your bios redetect hdds, including ide channel 1. in device manager, uninstall anything to do with ide and drives. gut the ide mobo drivers and reinstall them.

    if windows still doesnt pick it up then i dunno. check to make sure linux still recognizes dma mode 2. if not try replacing the 40 pin cable.
