Default Not letting dvd burner read disc in dma mode

Okay i have been spending pretty much my whole day with this mess and it has been pissing me off

Comp im running is
P4 3.0 overclocked 3.5
Mother board is a Asus P4C800-E DELUXE With lates 1021 bios update
1gig of ram

I got a Asus Drw-1608p Dvd burner i installed it and then started up windows and it detected the drive fine and installed the drivers. After that i went to go test the drive i could not get it to read any cds or dvd or any thing at all so i went in bios and check everthing out it was fine all set to auto. Next i came to check the mode the controller was on it was dma like it should be i have my other drive on dma and it working fine. So out of last resort i try PIO mode on the controller and now i can use the burner.

The prob is that i want to be able to use the damn thing in Dma not in PIO becuase it is to damn slow. What do you think is causing it not to work in DMA i really need some help here any sugguestions plz otherwise i have to wait till monday to contact asus to see if they can help me,

Im still not totaly certian if this is a hardware or software problem what you think?
