Strange DMA Transfer

Hello, everyone. I'm the one of engineers to struggle with NIOS2. 

 

I want to use DMA in 16bit mode. 

The following data is transfered from main memory(SDRAM in my kit) to peripheral. 

 

DATA: 0000h 01E0h D33Ah ... (continued) 

 

Next image describes well.  

wave form (http://www.drvbox.com/wave08.gif

But, the first data(0000h) appears during 4 cycles and next data(01E0h) appears two times again.  

I cann't understand that situation. 

 

I tried to use DMA-transfer from main memory(SDRAM in my kit) to the same(SDRAM in my kit) in 16bit mode. 

And I experienced the same case. I think, DMA may have problem. 

 

 

At the end of Develpment of my product, I have been much anxious about the problem. 

Please, help me, Nios Users and ALTERA ! 

Good luck to every Nios Users.

I just tried the experiment of transferring data to and from SDRAM in 16-bit mode (for a 32-bit SDRAM) and it seems to work fine. 

 

Can you post your code which does the 16-bit SDRAM transfer?
