PLEASE-Help on hard disk setup in the bios!
Please help.I have this problem,i have 2 hard disk,but i think they are working slowly,cause i use a benchmark program and it said they have near 3 Mb/sec write and read(I think they have to have 16 mb/sec write-read,or i am wrong?).
So i tried to fix it in the bios,so i put pio-4 for each drive and save to cmos and exit,but after exit,in the first screen(the screen where you can see what you have in the computer,hdd`s,fdd`s,memory,name of processor,and etc.)i see the 2 hdd`s with pio-0 and something like ATA N/D.(Why it is not available??)
My question is how can i manage to use the hdd`s with pio-4 or try to help working more fast than they are now.
Another question:i think the hdd`s supports dma(and i have ticked dma in the contoller properties)how can i manage to use it in dma,i need a different ide cable???(Cause i saw in some forums that they talk about a 40 pins and 80 pins cable,what is the difference between them???)
I appreciate any help on my problem.
THanks a lot.
