hdparm dma not working

When I try to get dma to work with my hard drive, I get the following error:

# hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc

 setting using_dma to 1 (on)
 HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Operation not permitted
 using_dma    =  0 (off)

Does anyone know why this might happen? It's a brand new drive, there's no reason this shouldn't work...
