    Anyone have this problem? Its happened before but I cant remember how to fix it.

    Basically I reformatted my harddrive and started over, everything is fine until I install the Windows XP Service Pack 1. Then my harddrive is stuck in PIO mode instead of DMA. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling the primary and secondary IDE channels, but no luck so far.

    Anyone have any tips?

    Im running Windows XP and a 80gb Western Digital Harddrive and Asus P4PE Motherboard.

    I thought it was running good, but whenever windows boots , the music is all crackly and shit.

    It only does that when its still in PIO mode.
     
  9. I'm confused, are you saying it works now, or you're still in PIO mode? If even with the software, it's reporting you in PIO mode, then there may be a jumper mistake on your HD, or you're using the incorrect cable for your HD.

    Biggest thing IAA did for me is fix my problem with Media Player, which was playing Divx movies all herky-jerky. After it was installed, all was well.
