no, it
s actually a dword value, rather than numerical value, and simple means 1=enabled and 0=disabled


What was supposed to happen after this?

It restarted normally but nothing happened. The value that I changed to one was zero again and the current transfer mode of device 0 is still PIO.

update

I uninstalled the primary IDE channel which then re-installed itself. That seems to have solved the sound problem.

The current transfer transfer mode of device 0 is now Ultra DMA Mode 5. Should it be this?

that is odd, where is my response? I posted one Saturday....or thought I did

Yes, that is normal, you should be udma5 or udma4 depending on your drive and controller

Now, here is the rub, what caused it to drop into PIO mode?

Windows will throttle back if it is having a difficult time accessing the drive in the faster modes, so something made it drop back....hopefully, it was the disk corruption addressed by the chkdsk and it will not throttle back again

Is it still at udma 5?
