SubjectRe: Question about DMA and cd burning.
Yes, hdparm -d1 /dev/hd{b,c} did not work on older kernels for me, but 
2.4.20 appears to work successfully.

However, second question, both of my Plextors support UDMA2, and both
are on 80 PIN/IDE cables, when I enabled -d1 -X66, the kernel, it
crashed the kernel.

Feb 26 10:30:55 war kernel: hdc: drive_cmd: status=0x41 { DriveReady Error }
Feb 26 10:30:55 war kernel: hdc: drive_cmd: error=0x04
Feb 26 10:30:59 war kernel: hdc: drive_cmd: status=0x41 { DriveReady Error }
Feb 26 10:30:59 war kernel: hdc: drive_cmd: error=0x04
Feb 26 10:31:02 war kernel: hdc: drive_cmd: status=0x41 { DriveReady Error }
Feb 26 10:31:02 war kernel: hdc: drive_cmd: error=0x04
Feb 26 10:32:22 war kernel: scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid
11206, scsi1, channel 0, id 1, lun 0 Read (10) 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00
Feb 26 10:32:22 war kernel: hdc: timeout waiting for DMA
Feb 26 10:32:22 war kernel: ide_dmaproc: chipset supported
ide_dma_timeout func only: 14
Feb 26 10:32:22 war kernel: hdc: status timeout: status=0xd8 { Busy }
Feb 26 10:32:22 war kernel: hdc: drive not ready for command

After this, X froze and the keyboard lights were blinking, I could not
change to console or anything to see the kernel messages.

1] Why does the kernel turn DMA off by default?
config: http://installkernel.tripod.com/config-2.4.20.txt
2] Why does the kernel crash when I try to enable UDMA2 on the cdrw?
