Ok guys, I screwed up here.... I'm feeling pretty dumb

I got my hard drives mixed up! 4Skin to answer your question YES, one of my hard drivces is scsi, and I was never aware of that. When I bought it I didn't know it was scsi...

So, DMA is turned on for my main HD, scsi one thats turned off is mainly for storage and I never use it.
As for my my motherboard drivers, a person on the Dell forum told me "Dell never released a chipset driver for the Window XP operating system and your model. Instead Windows XP includes a native driver built in that provides the same chipset support. That driver was installed when you installed XP on your machine."

but thats doesn't matter now anyway, because DMA IS enabled, so thats good. Although, I still have the slowdown when burning.
