Hi all again :D I've made some triee , and these are the results:
Normal Configuration ATA1 Master: MAXTOR HD 60GB Slave : Liteon 52x 24x 52x ATA2 Master: Quantum Fireball HD 30GB Slave : NEC DV-5800 I get the problems described in the previous messages New Conf ATA1 Master: Maxtor HD 60GB Slave : Quantum Fireball HD 30GB ATA2 Master: Liteon 52x 24x 52x Slave : NEC DV-5800 No problems. All works correctly (both CD drives are initialized) I don't know why this, probably my MoBo is a bit slow in responding with ATA devices when have to initialize them. I had some problems with my precedent CDRW (a philips 8x 4x 32x) , but this time with Linux too (hang at boot) . Linux have solved this problem (I've posted a bug report to Vojitek Pavlik that have worked to eliminate this problem) , but FreeBSD have this again (but with my old CDRW the drive didn't work with all possible configuration , with this one changing the position of the drives solves the problem ) now , I think that could be a good idea increase the timeout time , in order to eliminate this problem in the future and make FreeBSD more compatible with ATA drives and ATA Controllers, at the cost of some millisecond longer boot-time :) Bye Marcello --- Fierman <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> ha scritto: > On Fri, 2003-07-25 at 16:48, Joshua Lokken wrote: > > > > > > > this problem sounds like the exact one as i am > having, (see > > > my mail to > > > this list: > > > > > > Subject: > > > ATA identify retries exceeded > > > (still!) > > > Date: > > > 24 Jul 2003 23:59:57 +0000 > > > > > > > > > jumpersettings are all ok, no possible signs of > hardware > > > itself being faulty. > > > dmesg : > > > > > ata0: at 0x1f0 irq 14 on atapci0 > > > ata1: at 0x170 irq 15 on atapci0 > > > ata0-slave: ATA identify retries exceeded > > > ad0: 38172MB <MAXTOR 6L040J2> [77557/16/63] at > ata0-master UDMA33 > > > Mounting root from ufs:/dev/ad0s1a > > > > > > ???
