    SubjectQuestion about DMA and cd burning.
    I was talking to a couple of friends who also run 2.4.x, they said they 
    burn CD's all the time using DMA, and not PIO.

    So I looked into the matter, apparently, the kernel sets my hd{b,c}
    (both Plextor 12/10/32A's) drives DMA to disabled.

    [war@war war]$ dmesg | grep -i dma
    Activating ISA DMA hang workarounds.

    I even went further and tried:

    append="ide-cd=ignore=hdb ide-cd=ignore=hdc"

    In my lilo.conf, once again, no luck.

    Can anyone offer any suggestions why others can burn CD's in DMA mode,
    yet the kernel keeps disabling DMA for my burners?

    Please cc me as I am not subscribed to the list, thank you.
