  • Hardrive stuck in UDMA mode 2

    I have an 80 GB WD Caviar SE which should operate in UDMA mode 5 but when I hook it up to my Via EPIA M10000, it only will operate in mode 2. I've tried different cables and still it won't go faster than mode 2. I'm running the latest BIOS (1.16) and have the latest IDE drivers installed. Anyone know what's going on?

    Are you using a 40-wire IDE cable or an 80-wire IDE cable?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

        I'm using an 80 wire ribbon. I just figured out the problem...I had the ribbon reversed. Doh!
