    For a hard drive on IDE3 or IDE4 of a KT7A-RAID, how to I find out, in
    Windows XP, what DMA mode the drive is in?

    Device Manager seems to think it's a SCSI drive, and doesn't seem to
    report the DMA mode as it does for drives on IDE1 & IDE2.

    Try to press "pause" in the device screen that appears when you boot the cpu (just before Windows screen appear) the hard drive info appears (LBA, pio ode,...other bs etc). Other option is to get into the Raid menu (pressing Ctrl-H after the Highpoint verbose appears). Finally you can try toboot from a CD or diskette with your hard drive manufacturer utility, that will provide the DMA mode. Good luck
