When I right-click my IDE channel in Device manager there is no "Advance Settings" tab to change the transfer modes (DMA/PIO). does anybody know why this is?

Here's my setup:
Asus K8V SE Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ @2.2Ghz
1024MB Corsair Value Select RAM
Sapphire Radeon 9800XT
Audigy ZS 2 Platinum Pro
Western Digital Caviar SE 200GB (SATA connected)
Sony DoubleLayer DRU-700A DVD-R (Second IDE Channel, Primary Device)

The only reason I need to know is because Nero hangs when I try to burn to DVD-R and I think I need to change from DMA to PIO mode.

If anybody knows how to do it via motherboard settings I'm all ears :)

Not 100% sure, but I believe you need to find out which channel your drive is on and then change the settings for that channel.

Basically, go look at IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. The options are there on mine.
Hopefully I am not giving you wrong info.

Antec Solo ; Corsair HX520 ; Gigabyte P35-DS3R (bios F4) ; Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 @ 2.33GHz w/ ThermalRight Ultra 120 (fanless) ; OCZ Platinum XTC REV.2 PC2-6400 2GB @ 4-4-4-15 ; Western Digital SE16 320GB ; Maxtor DiamondMax 10 250GB ; XFX 7600GS ; Pioneer DVR-212D ; Win XP Pro SP2 (reduced with nLite) ; Dell 2007WFP (withS-IPS panel)
