I was trying to upgrade my Maxtor 4 Gig to a Maxtor 18 Gig. The 18 Gig is a UDMA66. I didn't realize there was a difference in the hard drives. I saw in my manual where the mb supported UDMA. I connected, powered up and got a long beep followed by 2 short beeps. I disconnected that hard drive and attached the old drive. Got the same beep code. Installed the old hard drive on another computer and it booted up. Reading the manual further (actually, the front instead of the back) it stated it supports UDMA33. What is the difference and what have I done???????? Do I need a new mb now?
