Seagate and WDC both ship SATA300 drives with a SATA150-limiting jumper on them. It's documented on the drive itself, and in the manufacturing manuals. Both companies do this as a precaution; there are some buggy chipsets out there which claim to support SATA300 but then break badly when utilising it. This is why the jumper's set to SATA150 by default. Chances are your drives have the jumper limiting the drive to SATA150. -- | Jeremy Chadwick jdc at parodius.com | | Parodius Networking http://www.parodius.com/ | | UNIX Systems Administrator Mountain View, CA, USA | | Making life hard for others since 1977.
