I've been loosely following this, not reading all the details, so
forgive me if I'm repeating or stating the obvious...

Have you checked your BIOS settings to make sure access to these IDE
devices is UDMA mode, not PIO?  Are the IDE cables you're using the
older 40-wire style or the newer 80-wire?    See
http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/if/ide/confCable80-c.html for info on
the difference.
