    Running under XP-SP2, when we use a single disk, DMA is active and everything is fine.

    When we connect a second physical disk as slave on the same Main IDE Channel, both switch to PIO.

    We bought a new 80-connector ribbon and tried several different slave disks. No change.

    FYI, both dvd readers are on secondary channel.

    Could be hardware failure. Try this hard disk in another working pc.
