According to the thread and Wiki data I see, you're complaining that the
following two devices on your SATA bus are SATA150 when they should be
SATA300, correct?

    Master:  ad8 <ST3500630AS/3.AAE> Serial ATA v1.0
    Master: acd0 <TSSTcorpCD/DVDW SH-S183L/SB01> Serial ATA v1.0

1) Have you verified that the SATA150-limiting jumper on your Seagate
   drive has been removed?  SATA300 drives from Seagate come from the
   factory with that jumper connected, limiting the drive to SATA150.

2) Do you happen to be using a PATA-to-SATA adapter on the DVD drive?

3) If No to #2, are you sure that the ICH9 does SATA300 with ATAPI
   devices?  Does the mainboard BIOS even support it for ATAPI?
