Question Question about UDMA

Just wondering, Sandra tells me that my new Maxtor supports a max UDMA-6, but XP is only using UDMA-5. Anyway I can force XP to use ATA133 and not ATA100?

First of all does your motherboard actually support ATA/133? If it does, did you just let WindowsXP install the default IDE driver? You may need to install the IDE driver from your motherboard manufacturer website.

Thanks for the reply, I'll try the VIA 4-1s, but last time I checked, I thought the windows IDE driver were accually faster
