I just add a 160GB ATA133 drive to my system. On this system I have an IDE DVD
burner on IDE channel 1. The 160GB drive is on IDE channel 2. When ever I try
to copy any data from the DVD drive to the 160GB hard drive the system locks
up. All I can do is a hard reboot.
I have the follow sysctl in my loader.conf
I've tried to set hw.ata.wc=0 an hw.ata.ata_dma=0, but still the machine
The machine is an older dual PIII and the IDE busses max rate is UDMA33. All
the other drives on the system are SCSI U160 and I have no problem copying to
the drives from the DVD drive.
Anyone have suggestions or a way around this other than only using the SCSI
drvie to copy from the DVD?? Otherwise, It look as though I'll need a new
machine for the ata133 drive because all my PCI slots are filled!!
