okay so 2 weeks back i went to iran and i took my WD ide hdd with me after coming back a few days back and connecting the hdd to my pc i faced slow read/write speeds( this is my secondary hdd my primary hdd is sata) i didnt know why it was so slow so i installed hard disk sentinel and it showed that my hdd performace was on 50% and it stated that it was working in pio mode... so i did some research to find out was pio mode was and fix it... googled but i didnt find a fix that would work. when i open device manager it states that both by hdd are working in dma mode...so i was further confused as what was wrong...
the fixes i have tried :
1. registry edit to fix the pio mode error
2. removing ide/atapi controllers from device manager and rebooting
3. trying a new ide cable
none of these worked for me.
attached below is the hdd report

any help will be appreciated.
