Well, I doubt it's the drive. I just bought the exact same drive recently,
and have had no problems. I do have it as a slave to a Seagate Medalist
1GB drive on IDE0 (hdb). It's on an Intel Zappa (430FX) motherboard. It's
been flawless, so you might be having BIOS or board problems, or maybe the
drive is defective or something. I know mine is not.
