Waht have you got to lose - if it works, it's better, if it doesn't you turn it off again.

its ok for the burners to go into DMA as it usually improves Performance with data transfers as it is using the Chipset Properly.

When you check the box the system will ask to be restarted. When the system has restarted if the checkbox is clear then your hardware does not support dma, however the opposite is true, if the checkbox is still ticked then the hardware does support dma. Windows will not allow the dma checkbox to remain checked if the hardware does not support it.
