I have a seagate b3 30gb
and well
When ever i try to go past 133 i get errors on it
someone reccommended that i turn of dma
whelp without dma it takes years it seems to load up
and it still wouldn't go higher with dma off
I also get errors on my modem
I think I could use a new hdd maybe
Im looking at the IBM 120
or some other drive i haven't really looked lately
at hdd

I have a seagate barracuda - I have never had my FSB past 110 without a crash - it appears to be the hard disk or my RAM. I have never had my FSB as high as 160MHz (KT133 mobo :()
