since christmas I have a new DVD-burner so I replaced my old CD-Drive and I
found out that the hw.ata.atapi_dma Problem has nothing todo with the chipset
but with the drive!
The DVD-burner (LiteOn LDW-401S) is in UDMA33 when booting with the sysctle
set to 1, also another DVD-Drive I tested (Teac DV-516E) is behaving as
Just my Sony CDU4811 was missbehaving. Perhaps this gives you an idea why/how
this problem can exist (remember that it was possible to set the old drive to
wdma2 with atacontrol mode!)
