JSI Tip 2200. How do I enable UDMA66 support on my Winodws 2000 Intel platform?

ATA/66 support is disabled by default.

If your device supports it, and you have a proper 80-conductor IDE ribbon cable, you can enable it by using Regedt32 to navigate to:


On the Edit menu, Add Value name EnableUDMA66, as a type REG_DWORD value. Set the data value to 1.

Shutdown and restart your computer.
