Set from PIO back to DMA Hey you with the PIO problems. Read post 14 and 16 in this same thread. I think one of them even has a link describing in detail how to fix this problem. I was able to fix mine with a simple system restore, but the DVD burner worked originally. For some reason certain things cause windows to set the ATAPI/IDE controller to PIO. If you can't find how to fix in this thread continue searching for "Setting to DMA from PIO" or something like that. Good luck.
