STEP 4: CHECK SYSTEM DMA SETTINGS


Your system must have Bus Mastering DMA enabled for your Kenwood TrueX™ CD-ROM Drive to operate at optimum performance using the following procedure:

1) Using the right mouse button, click the "My Computer" icon on the Windows® 95 desktop and select "Properties".

2) Select the "Device Manager" tab.

3) Click on the "+" in front of the "CD-ROM" icon to expand the list (if it is not already expanded).

4) Double-click on the "KENWOOD CD-ROM*".

5) Select the "Settings" tab.

6) The DMA checkbox is located to the right of the "Auto insert notification" checkbox. If it is not already checked, click in the DMA box.**

*If the Kenwood CD-ROM is not listed in step 4, your drive is not connected properly. Go back to Sections 3 & 4 of this manual to verify your installation.

** If no DMA checkbox is visible in step 6, you must contact your computer's manufacturer or Microsoft for the Bus Mastering DMA software.


In order to get the added benefits the Windows® operating system provides, you should make sure the File System properties for CD-ROM are optimized. Follow the process below to ensure your operating system is set for best results:

1) Using the right mouse button, click once on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop and select "Properties".

2) Select the "Performance" tab.

3) Click once on the "File System" button.

4) Select the "CD-ROM" tab.

5) Move the "Supplemental cache size" adjustment bar to "Large" and select "Quad-speed or higher" in the drop-down menu.

6) Click "Okay".
