Windows 7: No ATA Channels / Burn problem (Driver Issue?) - Trying to enale DMA

No ATA Channels / Burn problem (Driver Issue?) - Trying to enale DMA

Hi guys, when attempting to burn discs (specifically DVDs) it seems to take a ridiculously long time and CPU is suddenly 100%. My whole computer has been acting slow recently for that matter. After doing some research I'm almost certain the issue is that DMA mode has become disabled and needs to be re-enabled. That's all fine, but when I come to my decide manager and press properties under the 'IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers' section, there is no 'advanced settings' tab like there should be* (and hence no way to enable DMA mode again).

*red arrow on screenshot belows shows where it appears for others.

It seems everyone else whose had this issue has fixed it by uninstalling an Intel Accelerator programme (or something similar) but I don't see to have anything like that.

My knowledge of all this isn't great, but I'm fairly certain that if I can get the advanced settings tab to appear, I'd be able to sort my issue and get my dvd drive and computer working properly again.

If there's any other information you need from me, please let me know.

I really appreciate your time.
