I typed 'man atacontrol' and it didnt seem to help! (grin). Seriously, i had a 
look and worked out how to list/display the modes of drives,  and i am not 
sure what commands i would type to help fix the speed? I can now show people 
this though:

ATA channel 0:
    Master:  ad0 <ST380021A/3.19> ATA/ATAPI rev 5
    Slave:  acd0 <CD-RW 24X10X40/Y.IW> ATA/ATAPI rev 0
ATA channel 1:
    Master:  ad2 <ST380011A/3.06> ATA/ATAPI rev 6
    Slave:       no device present

(The cable is the right way around, and the drive is the only drive on the 
cable, thanks for suggestions though).
