I actually made a mistake there; the drive supports 'ATA/ATAPI Revision
6', which is, of course, UDMA5. This is according to atacontrol, and is
used when booted up into windows 2000.
I believe UDMA modes will give less resource usage compared to WDMA
modes, and combined with a large read-ahead cache in mplayer, should
prolong battery life by spinning up less frequently and remaining
spinning for less time, therefore I'm going to continue to try and get
it to correctly allow my DVD drive to use these modes.
As for drives not supporting more than udma3, seems ok on linux.
