CD-ROM settings: Sync data transfer,

I'd like to know the function of the following items in the CD-ROM settings box, under Device Manager - I can't find an explanation anywhere.

* Sync Data Transfer
* Disconnect
* DMA

TIA,
Glen

FIrst of all, the 2 first only applies to SCSI units,

Disconnect means that the unit (theoretically) can be disconnected from the SCSI bus and later reconnected.

Sync Data Transfer is Syncronous data transfer, a slover method of tranferin data.

DMA is Direct memory access, ie utilizing a DMA channel to reduce CPU load and in some instances increase performance.
