If deleting the IDE channel and your burner from Device Manager doesn't help, open the Registry (Start -> Run -> Regedit), find the key below and do the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Class \ {4D36E96A-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} \ 000x

Last four digits are likely 0001, 0002. Under those keys you will find MasterIdDataChecksum, SlaveIdDataChecksum.
Delete the value corresponding to your drive. It will make the OS to redetect the device DMA capabilities after reboot.

Note that for many older CD-ROM drives DMA can not be enabled in Windows 2000/XP.
