the drive is running in pio mode that is why it is doing that.
go to device manager and go to the hdd controller and change the mode from pio mode.

btw maxtor drives have a issue with nforce 4 chipset when the maxtor drive is sata2 or sata300 whatever. there is a new hdd firmware to help from thier site aswell.

i cant see how to change from pio mode...

under the drive detection settings in the bioses main screen should all be set to auto detect and the drive shouldnt detect as pio mode in windows either if it is check the drive in device manager.

the only problem is its in PIO mode, nothing more.

but why the hell is this in the amd section. just because you have an amd rig doesnt mean every single issue belongs here.

Maxtor normal drives Suck.. but they know how to make good SCSI..
