More about : change pio dma Kewlx25 January 23, 2010 5:08:24 PM I know Win9x/2000 use to have options where you could change PIO and DMA, but I don't even see those options anymore. I assume DMA is standard now days and all modern hardware uses it. What device is using PIO? Score 0 duftopia July 9, 2012 3:39:03 PM Download this software product is NOT a solution its an add... It would be nice if you provided instructions on how in windows to do it.
