The response to the command hdparm -d 1 /dev/hdb is
Setting using-dma to 1 (on)
HDIO_SET-DMA failed: Operation not permitted
using_dma = 0 (off)
shows root has rw permissions for the settings file and the file contains
Name Value Min Max Mode
using_dma 0 0 1 rw
Since root has read/write permissions to this file, could - should? -
I edit it and change the Value to 1?
hdb is a relatively new - purchased Dec. 2003 - 80 GB Western Digital
in my case this problem has been resolved choosing the appropriate
ATA driver (intel PIIX).
