I just recently built a PC (AMD A10-5800K CPU, ASRock FM2A85X

Extreme6 ATX Mobo,Lite-On IHAS224-06 24X SATA DVD+/-RW,G.Skill Ares Series 16GB RAM,Western Digital Blue 1 TB Internal HDD

7200 SATA III, 64 MB Cache,Samsung 840 Series 120GB Internal SSD,Windows 8 Pro).
On both dbpoweramp and EAC, the rip-rate is much slower than when run on my Win XP SP3 unit. I'm used to seeing 4 times or

more then what I'm seeing now, which is about x8 or so. In Win XP, with IDE drives, I was able to set the DMA option, via

Device Manager, but on this unit, there isn't even an option for DMA on either of the channels or the controller, or

anywhere else that I can see. Is it true that DMA doesn't apply to SATA drives? Also, why do both software rip so slowly?

How can I speed up the process to where it should be?
I appreciate any assistance and thank all who reply.
