    Even Maxtor should have a utility to control what modes the drives are
    allowed to use. If your box isn't smart enough on its own to limit things
    to a safe range, then grab a copy of said utility and lock the drives down
    so that they CAN'T be used in UDMA5. Most of them just require booting
    from a floppy....

    Not so tough.
