I may be mistaken, but a DMA controller is more the coding in a chip... I can't think of anyway it would damage anything.... unless it were programmed wrong from the gitgo... what exactly is going on with your system?

It would not damage the drive itself but it certainly could damage your data.

If the DMA controller goes bad, your motherboard is trashed.

Are you having a problem or are you just worrying?
