I don't think that is the problem with this one.

I already have two maxtor diamondmax9 ata133 drives mounted.  I also 
had no problem adding a 70gb ibm, but the 120gb maxtor was a no go. I 
was just trying to also add the 120gb drive to make a file transfer 
In the end I had to do it over the network.

It could however be the mentioned PS problem and I'll give that a try 
when I find a quiet and good quality one.
