Thanks, I used atacontrol to change the mode in which the drive was
working and the errors went away. I changed it from UDMA66 to PIO0 and
no more messages. My motherboard controller will handle the UDMA66 mode
so I do not know what the deal is. My drives are on a ATA100 cable. I
will look a little deeper so see what else is causing this. I would
much rather operate the drive in UDMA66 mode than PIO0.
I will take a look in the archives to see what I can dig up.
