I had checked the pins already. I didn't think about the cable itself going
bad. I rounded up an old IDE controller card that supports large drives. I
have the troubled drive running off of the controller card. It has been
working fine for a few days now. Hopefully this will fix it. For now it
seems like it was the MB/Bios struggling with the unsupported large drive.
