Need help,convert PIO to DMA

hi all.
well i m havign a problem since i bought this dell studio 1737 laptop and i tried to burn a iso image onto dvd to make a bootable disk,as it is in PIO mode,and says that it needs some changes to write in DAO mode.

i have tried every registry hack,every here there method.but no success.i have no idea how to do this.plz help me.

in my BIOS,sata mode controller is set to AHCI but it is changeable with IDE,does it make any difference.
