    hi guys!!!
    i have a dell studio laptop 1737...
    its specs are
    2.18 dual core intel.4gb ram,320gb hdd with sucker dvd rw drive...

    i have a problem,since the 1st day i bought it,it burns everything,but when i try to make bootable disk,it says the drive is in PIO mode n not in DMA or DAO mode and needs some settings to be done to bring it in DAO mode.
    i went for its solution...
    1.i contacted dell help line service,they gave a patch,i applied but still the drive says it is in PIO mode.
    2.when i go in device manager,n see the drive in ATA section,it says its DMA is enabled.

    somewhere on web search i read,that it might be some problem with cables connecting to dvd drive...making it conflic,not set as proper Master or Slave...

    but my Qs is,it has come as from factory laptop,no changes...then how it is possible this problem come....

    anyone who knows after this whole story....what is possible solution....
