What's the problem with UDMA?
The problem is that some motherboards don't set the cable detect bits properly which means that the chipset limits transfer speeds to UDMA/33, the highest speed permitted with 40 wire IDE cables. 80 wire IDE cables are recommendet for UDMA/33 and mandatory for all higher speeds. A bios upgrade may fix this.
