    hi folks,

    I've got a Maxtor fireball 3 ( 2f040j0) -----> http://www.maxtor.com/en/support/pro...ll_3/index.htm .
    I know it is capable of UDMA 6 ( ATA 133) but can't enable it!!
    It keeps on running at UDMA 5. I've looked at the bios, controlled the cable, but I haven't figured out a solution.... any tips?

    thanks, :)

    perhaps your mobo doesn't support ata133, not all do

    also, ata133 is really just a gimic. it doesn't offer any real advantages over ata100 with current mobos. Basically, if you don't get ata133 you not missing out on anything.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
