last week i got a LG GCE-8320B (Slave, secondary) and burns without problems.
Win2k SP3 needs approximatly 59 seconds to notice that the GCE can work in DMA-Mode
if I deactivate the option "DMA, if available" (=> start with PIO) the bootup takes 59sec less than with DMA!
the DVD-Rom (another LG) on primary Slave just needs 2 seconds to check that its UDMA.
taking the RW as primary Slave and DVD as secondary Slave => no change!
RW alone on Slave => no change!
update to newest firmware => no change!
'update' to GCE-8400B => no change!
biosupdate => no change!
can i force win2k manually (in registry or so) to take 'DMA' for the RW, so the automatic search ("DMA, if available") won't longer waste my time.
have an VIA-Board which supports UDMA133 and newest 4in1-drivers.
ps. the bios runs it in PIO 4
