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.
