Default Nforce 3 limiting my DVD-RW to PIO

I'm currently running ubuntu with linux kernel 2.6.10-3.

When my system boots, I'm getting the following message:

Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 7.00alpha2
ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx

Yet it detects my SATA as 133

I then do a hdparm -d /dev/hda (hda because the harddrive is sda being SATA and all :P)

hdparm -d /dev/hda gives the following message:

/dev/hda:
using_dma = 0 (off)

I do a hdparm -d1 /dev/hda and get:

/dev/hda:
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Operation not permitted
using_dma = 0 (off)

If I do a hdparm -i the message is as follows:

/dev/hda:

Model=PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-108, FwRev=1.18, SerialNo=
Config={ Fixed Removeable DTR<=5Mbs DTR>10Mbs nonMagnetic }
RawCHS=0/0/0, TrkSize=0, SectSize=0, ECCbytes=0
BuffType=13395, BuffSize=64kB, MaxMultSect=0
(maybe): CurCHS=0/0/0, CurSects=0, LBA=yes, LBAsects=0
IORDY=on/off, tPIO={min:240,w/IORDY:120}, tDMA={min:120,rec:120}
PIO modes: pio0 pio1 pio2 pio3 pio4
DMA modes: mdma0 mdma1 mdma2
UDMA modes: udma0 udma1 udma2 udma3 *udma4
AdvancedPM=no
Drive conforms to: device does not report version:

* signifies the current active mode

Finally hdparm -t /dev/hda gives the speed as 3.48mb/s


Just wondering if anyone can help?

The chipset onboard is an nforce3 from an Epox 8kdaj motherboard

well,

3.84 MB/s isn't bad for for a "PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-108"... that's something like 24x!

my old DVD-A105 is about: (with "using_dma = 1 (on)" )
Timing buffered disk reads: 10 MB in 3.66 seconds = 2.73 MB/sec

And did you run hdparm as root? if not, try it again as "root" ...

Well my A105 should be something like 40x...


but you "must" know 40x (as 52x) is MARKETING... it's "top" / "peak" speed not the average...
