    This is a known issue that allegedly has nothing to do with the drive, and
    everything to do with a bug in many ide controllers. I have my 307030
    running just fine in windows 2k with an intel i815 board.

    I *think* the i8xx N/Sbridge chipsets all work fine with the drives. Mine
    do. A quick search shows complaints with: BX, amd 751, kt 133a, highpoint
    chipsets.

    Does anyone know what this bug actually is, and whether there's a possible
    workaround without disabling udma entirely?
