SATA disk not running in correct DMA mode? Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: December 30, 2009 2:09 PM in Storage Share Caimbeul December 29, 2009 2:32:50 PM Hi, Hopefully a simple one but using "HD Tune" to look at the info on the HDD of one of my computers i noticed that it said the following: Supported: UDMA Mode 7 (Ultra ATA/512) Active: UDMA Mode 5 (Ultra ATA/100) FYI the model is a 200Gb Samsung Spinpoint (SP2004C) Is this normal or should it be running faster and if so how do i make it so? ...I also noticedd all my other HDD's running like this. Any help is appreciated. Cheers!!

More reliable information through Intel Applications Accelerator if applicable (older Intel hosts). Can't find your answer ? Ask !
