From comments just a few days ago on this list, apparently the 4801
didn't add the DMA capability until relatively recently. If you bought
yours early, it won't be able to do that. Mine definitely doesn't. I
believe that it can't be retrofit, though I'd love to be corrected.
This isn't as weird a decision as it sounds. When the 4801 was
designed, CF cards were small and PIO-only. They've improved enormously
over the last few years. It's nice that the newer ones do DMA, but I
personally think it would have been better to bump the model to 4802.
Less confusion that way.
