I gotta agree cause your data path is now different and where one
program used it successful and the other did not I would suspect the
driver for the 'above mobo' change. My understanding is DMA allows the
HD to stream directly to/from RAM without requiring any CPU action,
purely the bus cycle. so your physical data path has changed and you
added new software
