Re: How to fall back to PIO for IDE CD's?

That's interesting.  I've only tried with audio CD's and commercial DVD's.

If I recall correctly, we've had problems reading CD's and DVD's on aceride
starting with V100's.  It probably is a problem in the driver.  In the past,
I'd looked at the FreeBSD and Linux drivers, and made some local changes.
However, they didn't fix things for me, so I didn't commit.

I'll have another look and see what I can find.  I'll look for some other
media types too.
